I've suffered chronic panic attacks and anxiety disorder and a form of PTSD since 2008. I've done all the psychiatry psychologist things done the talk therapy they have cycled me through all the antidepressants and benzos. None helped till they start me on Xanax 3 times a day. What a life saver I wouldn't be here without them. My attack are intense and they bring me back from the brink been on them since 2011. My disorders are so bad I had to go on disability. Recently my doctor has gave up her practice do to lack of payments from insurance and other reasons. She went to a local clinic and they are very strict on what she prescribes. I live in WV and all these junkies have messed it up for people who truly need it. AKA mass punishment can anyone steer me in what to do I have only a few days of medicines left and it only make my anxiety worse knowing this. Need help PLEASE
Sorry you are in this predicament. You may want to search out a new Physician that you would be happy with longer term. Then call to make an appointment and explain the urgency of the situation to the office. They may be able to to squeeze you in. Too, If your previous Doctor referred you to some other Physicians, you may want to contact them. Finally, try to preserve your medication by reducing the dose if possible. You may find that you don't require 3 mg per day. I hope for your sake that is the case.
Good luck and take care for now.
In the same boat in Oklahoma. I found a doctor that would prescribe Xanax for me, but he moved to a different practice, one that I could not afford. (lost my job due to my debilitating anxiety and also due to side effects of Klonopin (was not taken at the same time as I was on Xanax). Trying to find a doctor that will prescribe it for me has been very difficult. It has been 3 years since I had an active script of it, but the place that I get my medications from cannot prescribe narcotics (barbiturates Included), so I would have to see a separate doctor just for it. After getting on soonercare (Oklahoma medicaid), it has been easier to see a doctor, but still very hard to get ahold of Xanax.
