Controlled Substance Policy

What are controlled substances?

Prescription medications can fall into the categories of controlled substances and non-controlled substances. Controlled substances are substances with a high potential for abuse or addiction, regulated and classified by the DEA (Drug Enforcement Agency).

Most prescription medications used for chronic conditions and infectious diseases fall into the category of non-controlled substances. They still must be obtained through a prescription by a physician but are not regulated by the DEA.

What is MindX’s policy on controlled substances?

Our doctors can issue prescriptions for non-controlled medications, but currently, we do not provide prescriptions for controlled substances. If you have any doubts about whether your medication falls into the controlled substances category, please don't hesitate to reach out to us at (888) 666 2042 or send a message to for clarification.
