Can I get a med refill in USA on an Indian Prescription?

I am an Indian Citizen living in the US. I have been taking LEVETIRACETAM (to control partial-onset seizures) since 2011. Currently, I am in perfect health conditions. As a precautionary medicine, I get the medicine from India either myself or through a friend/family member traveling between India and the US. Due to the recent COVID-19 pandemic, I am running short of medicine. I have my prescription and medical certificates to support my condition. I am curious to know if I can get Levetiracetam refill in the pharmacies in the US or will a doctor prescribe this to me without me going through medical tests. I usually get my tests (primarily EEG and MRIs) in India and want to avoid these tests in the US, because 1. I am in perfect health conditions 2. Even with insurance, they will be extremely expensive. The last partial seizure that lasted a few minutes was in 2012.
