The online doctors at Qoctor are able to prescribe certain commonly used medications for the treatment of anxiety or depression if:

  • you are already taking one of these medications
  • your condition is currently stable 


Common examples of SSRIs and SNRIs are Escitalopram (Lexapro) , Citalopram (Cipramil) , Sertraline (Zoloft), Venlafaxine (Efexor), Desvenlafaxine (Pristiq), and Duloxetine (Cymbalta).


Please note Qoctor doctors do NOT provide prescriptions for certain medications including the following:

  • Benzodiazepines- such as Diazepam (Valium), Alprazolam (Xanax), Clonazepam (Rivotril), Oxazepam (Alepam)
  • Anti-psychotic medications (such as Quetiapine (Seroquel) and Olanzapine (Zyprexa)
  • Lithium
  • and some other less commonly used medications


To request a prescription for your regular anxiety medication, you will need to answer some simple online questions, then book a video consultation, during which you'll speak to an Australian doctor, who will ask some further information about your health. They'll make sure the medication is safe and suitable for you, that you have no significant side effects, and that your condition is stable. If treatment is advised, you can have your prescription emailed direct to your local pharmacy (or posted to you). Repeats may be provided, based on doctor's discretion.


This service costs $31.99 for a consultation, which also covers any prescription(s) issued.

The prescription can be sent directly to your local pharmacy, or posted to you if you prefer.
