You’ll answer a comprehensive set of questions to see if mental health treatment through Nurx is right for you and allow a Nurx medical provider to evaluate your symptoms. We use clinically-backed screening questions similar to what you would complete when starting treatment with an in-person mental health professional. With Nurx, you can get started on your schedule, no appointment needed.

Step 2

Connect with a licensed Nurx medical provider.

Our medical team is comprised of licensed providers who are trained and supervised by a board-certified psychiatrist to treat anxiety and depression. If Nurx telehealth services are right for you, a provider will evaluate your responses and reach out in a few short days with additional information.

Step 3

Get treatment and ongoing care, on your schedule.

If you are prescribed medication, our pharmacy can deliver it to your door and your medical provider will stay in touch to make sure it’s working for you†, adjust your treatment or dose as needed, and provide ongoing guidance. Please note: Nurx does not provide therapy or counseling. Nurx is not available for crisis response.

If you find yourself in an emergency situation with thoughts of wanting to harm yourself or others please call 911, go to your local emergency room or contact the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline by calling or texting 988.

Medications We Prescribe

If we bill insurance for your medication, copays are as little as $0-$10 per month. The average out-of-pocket price for most medications is $25 per month.

Please note: Medication prices can vary based on doses. Please check your insurance coverage; the final medication price may vary based on your insurance, so this estimated pricing is not guaranteed. Nurx does not prescribe benzodiazepines (such as Xanax®, Valium®, and Ativan®), stimulants (such as Adderall® or Concerta®), or any controlled substances.

Therapy Resources

Mental health medication is more effective when combined with therapies that help you examine your thought patterns and reactions, and shift your mindset to one that better supports your mental health. We offer resources that connect you with a therapist or offer convenient digital support based on cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT).

Got Any Questions?

  • How does anxiety and depression treatment with Nurx work?

    Whether you suspect you are experiencing depression or anxiety, or have been diagnosed with these conditions in the past, you can request treatment from Nurx any time through our website or app. You’ll answer a comprehensive set of questions similar to the intake you would complete when starting treatment with an in-person mental health professional. Your answers to these questions will allow your Nurx medical provider to evaluate your symptoms, make a diagnosis and (if medically appropriate) create a treatment plan.

    Within two days of submitting your request for treatment a Nurx medical provider licensed in your state will send a message to your Nurx account to ask any follow up questions and propose a treatment plan. You’ll have the chance to share any information and ask any questions you’d like. Once your medical provider has prescribed treatment our pharmacy will fill your prescription and your medication will arrive in the mail.

    Your medical provider will follow up regularly to monitor how your medication is working, and adjust treatment as needed, and you can message them any time with questions or to request adjustments.

  • How much does anxiety and depression treatment with Nurx cost?

    Treatment through Nurx costs $65 for the initial consultation and $55 per month for ongoing medication management, which includes a licensed medical provider evaluating your intake assessment, creating and prescribing your treatment plan, and managing your medication needs on an ongoing basis.

    We bill insurance for your medication, and copays are as little as $0-$10 per month. The out-of-pocket price for most medication is $25 per month, and shipping is always free.

  • What medications does Nurx prescribe for anxiety and depression?

    Your Nurx medical provider will create a personalized treatment plan based on your symptoms and health history. Nurx prescribes and delivers a comprehensive selection of mental health treatments including SSRIs, SNRIs, tricyclic antidepressants, and medications that may be used to treat panic attacks. The Nurx medical team prescribes these treatments according to evidence-based clinical guidelines and based on each patient’s individual symptoms and health history.

  • What types of anxiety does Nurx treat?

    Nurx medical providers treat Generalized Anxiety Disorder, Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder, Social Anxiety Disorder, and Panic Disorder, though our medical team evaluates each patient individually and will only prescribe treatment to patients who they determine can be safely and appropriately cared for through telehealth.

  • What types of depression does Nurx treat?

    Nurx treats mild to moderate depression, Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD) and Premenstrual Dysmorphic Disorder (PMDD). We may also treat patients with stable postpartum depression, if they are already on medication. However, our medical team evaluates each patient individually and will only prescribe treatment to patients who they determine can be safely and appropriately cared for through telehealth.

  • What does the $55/month cover?

    There isn’t a one-size-fits all treatment for mental health conditions — the medication/s and the dose that work best varies by individual patient and may change for that patient over time. For that reason, you may need to communicate with our medical team regularly at the beginning of your treatment to make sure you achieve good results. Once your treatment plan is established our medical team will check in throughout the year, to confirm that the treatment is working and adjust if needed. Nurx patients can message the medical team any time to ask questions about their treatment or request prescription adjustments. This ongoing care and unlimited access to our medical team costs $65 for the initial consultation (in addition to the copay or cost of your medication) and $55/month for ongoing medication management, even if there are months when you don’t communicate with us. Please note that Nurx does not provide therapy or counseling.
