Yes, as long as it is a valid prescription from a doctor.

A prescription written by a licensed doctor can be filled at any pharmacy. All you have to do is take the prescription to your pharmacy. Your pharmacist will call the doctors office who wrote the prescription to confirm the prescription and to make sure that everything is accurate. Once they have been able to verify everything is accurate and verify that the prescription is good the pharmacist can fill the prescription. It is a good idea though to let the pharmacist know when you turn in your prescription that the office is out of state. That way they know right away and can let you know if it will take longer than normal to fill the prescription. That being said I have had to fill prescriptions out of state before and have never had an issue. It sometimes makes it easier to go to a pharmacy where the people know you better. Good Luck!
