I was recently prescribed celexa for my depression and anxiety, but it hasnt really been helping with my anxiety. and there are two things that i was really wondering. Whats the least suspicious way to request a dosage increase from your doctor and also how to get them to prescribe you a benzo rather than a SSRI, without making them think your fishing for drugs. i understand benzos are bad, but i also hear there great for anxiety relief, so please just answer the questions. i saw him 4/1/13, how soon can i safely(by safely i mean without him thinking im fishing for drugs) call back asking him those two questions above or any other ones necessary to get those two things achieved. i know aprazolam is good for anxiety but asking for it straight to the doctor could seem suspicious to him.
How long have you been taking ceiexa? It can take a month for it to work. There is a med for anxiety called buspar its not a benzo. You take it every day to prevent anxiety. The best thing is to tell your Dr that your meds aren't helping. You can play dunb and say what about xanax? Just don't appear like you are looking for a specific med.
I take 40mg of Celexa each day for my depression. I also take 60mg of Buspar for my anxiety. If you speak to the doctor, let him know that its not working for your anxiety. Be honest with him and he should be receptive to adding an additional drug to help with your anxiety. I wish you luck in your situation.
