Sep 10 '16 at 5:45 comment added Johnny Most cities have numerous walk-in "urgent care" clinics. I'd call one of those clinics and tell them your situation -- if they can examine your wife and verify your wife's condition (perhaps consulting with her doctor) and her need for the medicine, they may be willing to write the prescription. You'll have to pay for the visit (if your insurance doesn't).
Sep 9 '16 at 19:34 comment added mkennedy It would be a longshot. The doctor would likely still have to examine your wife.
Sep 9 '16 at 19:29 comment added Reed G. Law @mkennedy that may work in other countries but it seems things are a lot more strict here in the US. I'm not sure of the legality or liability perspective on that.
Sep 9 '16 at 18:34 comment added mkennedy Do you have any relatives or friends in the US (hopefully near where you are) that could vouch for you to their doctor? That might allow the local doctor to skip the tests and just write the prescription. (We did something similar when outside the US; the doctor was a relative)
Sep 9 '16 at 18:24 comment added Bakuriu @ReedG.Law Is this the case? You didn't mention someone stealing your medication... in any case my comment is valid: the first thing before travelling is to make sure to have enough drug (and not just for the counted days, but a few more just in case).
Sep 9 '16 at 18:17 comment added Reed G. Law @Bakuriu have you considered that someone's travel dates might change or other circumstance arise? What if a bag was stolen? There are a lot of reasons why someone might want to get a refill on a prescription while travelling, whether at home or abroad.
Sep 9 '16 at 16:20 comment added Giorgio Not to take away from @mts great answer +1, consulting one of the International Society of Travel Medicine providers might help istm.org/AF_CstmClinicDirectory.asp
Sep 9 '16 at 13:10 comment added Reed G. Law @NateEldredge she has about a week's worth left.
Sep 9 '16 at 13:00 comment added Fattie In any event, the trivially simple answer is NO, yank pharmacies WILL NOT fill foreign prescriptions, end of story.
Sep 9 '16 at 12:54 comment added Nate Eldredge How quickly do you need this medication? Hours, days, weeks?
Sep 9 '16 at 12:53 comment added Nate Eldredge @JoeBlow: The cross-border shipping would carry the same issues as getting the medication sent from home, as described in mts's answer. There are also risks in that it may not be easy to verify that the drugs you get are genuine and/or safely produced; there are potential legal risks as well. "Canadian pharmacy" websites are not necessarily even Canadian.
Sep 9 '16 at 12:49 comment added Fattie Americans just buy drugs from uncontrolled Canadian web sites - perhaps you could do that?
