    Thanks @Maystarmom and @surfcity. I've had the exact same issue with CVS.

    Wow @NYmommabear. That would be so convenient for mail order. My neice will need to look into it.

    For mail order, the Ritalin prescriptions that went to an in-state pharmacy required no diagnosis (United Health) and the scripts that were mailed to out of state pharmacies (Aetna and Cigna) required the diagnosis ADHD written on it. Wonder if both the sending state and receiving state of electronic scripts need to approve it's ok for controlled substances. It is worth finding out.
