Do you have to have a prescription and or license to purchase oxygen?
Just wondering because a friend of mine told me that you can not just purchase with out prescription?

Caro M
it depends on what state you are in

well any one that welds with gas has oxygen . so there goes your friends idea. now the filtering of the oxygen is not as good but that is what it is . anyone can have this in there home many do .
i think your friend might think OK its a drug well it can be. you certainly could kill yourself with it too . but you can get it if you like.

People who weld with acetylene torches purchase it all the time to do oxy-acetylene welding and cutting. Of course they never have a prescription.

Barry M
Misred2000 is absolutely correct. There is a huge difference between the oxygen used for welding and medical grade oxygen. You must have a doctor's prescription to get medical grade oxygen. I know, because I am on it all of the time and I have both portable liquid and a concentrator like misred2000. If you need information on the different types of portable oxygen, this is a terrific site with a lot of great information. Good luck.


anyone can buy it, but you need to "qualify" for it in order for insurance to cover it. That usually means a doctor signs a note that your spO2 drops to 87% or lower.

You need a Doctors permission to obtain oxygen, you also have to go through a small of amount training, it is a pressurized container after all

Your friend is right. It is considered a medication, and to get it, you have to have a prescription from a dr.

At least in IL, you have to have a dr's order to obtain oxygen.

Medical grade oxygen requires a prescription. This is because it is regulated by, in addition to other organizations, the FDA. It is considered a drug. This classification allows rigorous standards to be applied to Medical Oxygen preparation and delivery - standards regarding purity, concentration, and storage.

Buying oxygen from a welding store and breathing it is dangerous. Don't do it.
