Under federal law: a valid prescription for a controlled substance prescription drug requires: (1) a physician’s in-person evaluation of the patient, including the patient’s blood test report by the prescribing physician; (2) and the prescription must be issued for a valid medical purpose (3) in the usual course of professional medical practice. Both the prescribing physician and dispensing U.S. pharmacy must be registered under section 303(f) of The Controlled Substance Act to prescribe and dispense, deliver or distribute a controlled substance prescription drug to a patient. State laws governing the issuance of prescriptions for non-controlled substances generally require the following: a medical complaint, medical history, prior physical examination, clinical assessment, logical connection between the medical complaint and any treatment prescribed, issuance of prescription for a legitimate medical purpose in the usual course of professional medical practice.

Ageless Medicine of the Palm Beaches complies with state and federal laws pertaining to the valid issuance of controlled substance prescription drugs and non-controlled substance prescription drugs. Federal laws applicable to the valid prescribing and distribution of controlled substance prescription drugs when the distribution of such drugs is caused or facilitated by means of the internet, are now governed by the Controlled Substance Act, as amended effective April 13, 2009, by legislation entitled the “Ryan Haight Online Pharmacy Consumer Protection Act of 2008.” However, states may have laws that are more restrictive on the prescribing and distribution of prescription drugs in their state. And state Attorney Generals may enforce this federal legislation.
