I was wondering the best way to go about asking a doctor for a script. I have panic attacks which lead to me either going home to hide from the world or I get very ill tempered. Recently (with my girl being pregnant and about due) I've been having these more frequently and more intense. I've been prescribed a lot of medicines in the past that have not worked. Recently I started buying 2mg pills off the street. and usually half to a whole one does me right for most of the day (sometimes have to re-dose 1-2mg later though). Should I be honest and tell him these work for me and tell the back story? I dont want to seem like a drug addict as I dont take the pills even daily but as needed with stress of the pregnancy and other things. I dont like the other benzos because they get me "messed up" to where i cant function (especially klonopin). Ideas? (this'll be my first visit with the Dr. as I moved recently too)
If u genuinally need them. You should have no problem asking being honest and straight up with your doc. Sounds to me like you're hooked on them for the wrong reasons though and should first tell your doc the truth and nothing but the whole truth if you trully want to get help. Otherwise, you're just pill seeking to your next high and any dr can see right through that and will red flag you in the system and stop dead in your tracks. Get help. Sounds like you need it.
as stated before you just have to be upfront but you should never take an XR med in a half dose because its not really a half dose at that point. its an immediate release of a larger dose what intended (which could be why you have to redose). as for this being your first visit... im in the same boat, imma hope he doesnt just think OMG hes a drug seeker!!!
im assuming you have done some type of therapy as well? and have been/are on an antidepressant since thsi is the first line of drugs for an anxiety/depressive disorder
