Not if you are over 65 but, in the Southern part of VA. You cannot get a doctorto write both. You have to choose if you want o be in pain and keep our nerves calmed down and not have acute anxiety attacks. Or Have acute anxiety attacks and take your pain pills so you don't hurt. Thanks to some son of a Woman Dr who was too dumb to know you can't take 20 Lortab 10's and 15g Xanax's all at once. So, she drafted a Bill that passed now Dr.'s on Va. refuse to even talk to you about it. NO matter if yo need them, the Dr.'s aren't worried about what their patient needs anymore. They are worried about those bank accounts, and who is looking over their shoulder. We have what is called Government controlled health care. Just not like it was suppose to be. If you get the prescriptions from Tenn or Ky.
You better fill them there because if you don't, 8 pout of 10 pharmacists will take the prescriptions and ask which one you prefer and throw the other one out.
But at age 65 no they don't stop writing Xanax because of that. I have been on them for 12 years.3 mg a day with 4 8/2 Suboxone a day for Chronic deep lumbar pain. I am 59. if they just stopped writing them for me, they may as well take me on to the hospital then.
There is no such prohibition, rule, restrictions or laws.
"Short-half-life benzodiazepines, such as oxazepam, alprazolam, and triazolam, are usually recommended for older adults, because these agents do not accumulate in the blood, are rapidly cleared from circulation, and offer greater dosage flexibility."
