Click the link below and then select what state you are in and scroll down to doctors and the number of claims you see is the number of prescriptions they wrote in a year:

And how many doctors — other than your FP — have you consulted about this problem? Personally, I don't see a flock of shrinks running and hiding from a patient with legitimate Anxiety Disorder (of whatever type). I"m not stating that I;d let you tell me what to write for, but I'd give your case the professional assessment it deserves. Xanax isn't a particularly good drug for anxiety; duration is too short and that;s the rule for addiction potential. We've known this since Seconal is the 1940s.

I am very frustrated that I Amadeus to feel like a drug addicted person if at very few times in my life I have needed Xanax. I 55 never had a drug problem but have a anxiety disorder that is increasingly worse in the last two years no one will help

@sick and tired: Thanks for the compliments. The primary reason we don't write for Valium any longer is because the brand is SO expensive (and many insurance companies simply won't fill Valium (brand name) scripts with the real deal) and except possibly Sandoz, we can't find a generic company that produces even remotely equivalent generics. Word in the pharmacies is that NO STORE gets anything but "INDEFINITELY BACK-ORDERED". That does for our hospitals pharmacies, too, and we spend MAJOR bucks on generics. I tried it for myself when I was prescribed Valium by my shrink. I asked him for a generic script and was bad the next day, telling him 4 x 5mg tabs barely lowered my pulse rate an BP, let along effect my anxiety level.) Other docs may have different reasons, but mine is that the generics available simply do not work. I wouldn't expect a pt to take a pill I find unsatisfactory. (Theoretically, I could up the dose greatly and that MIGHT work, but prescribing 20mg of Valium QID is a sure way to draw attention from the state CS folks, eventually the DEA..The law assumes all generics are created equally and that;s simply not so. We shrinks have a whole "underground" where we share "almost-equivalent" generic companies It does help.)

@Dr Joey, Damn you you always have the right responses. And the buspar was ok but the dose I needed you could knock out a horse. Why do DRs never give Valium any more? It is much longer lasting and good for PTSD. You did the right thing for your sister. I wish I had a brother with your experience. I have to give you a plug here (you deserve it) lol. Anyone who posts on here listen to this guy he knows his s***. You may not like what he has to say but I will be damned he is right!!! He has helped me unknowingly by reading his posts, if you want good advice listen to him. As much as we addicts think we may know it all or no one knows what I am going through we don't or we wouldn't be posting on this site. Good luck to all

@Sick & Tired: You're one of the lucky ones! BuSpare only works in high doses for a SELECT number of pts. No, we don't know why or how. My sisters shrink was ramping up the BuSpar to little or no effect. I tried calling her informally, but she hid behind privilege. Maybe she didn't know that I was her Clinical Supervisor's boss and her contract entitled me to have answered any question I posed about a patient. I called her in formally and I was NOT happy. I reminded her that I was her supervisor and her supervisor's supervisor and I want to know the rationale for what my print-out detailed as IRRATIONAL PRESCRIBING. She insisted she didn't know Anne was my kid sister as well as a kick-ass prosecutor. "How many times did you have to hear "my brother, Dr. Joey" or "my brother, Joey, the Chief of Psychiatry" before you get the f-----g message. I cancelled her scripts and put Anne on Effexor-XR., Prozac and Klonopin and a sleep aid. "You're not in sole charge — at least not now. I want all your notes and reports and scripts on my desk every Monday for the foreseeable future." She objected and I told her that she knew where the doors were. Prior to our meeting, I checked to see if her DEA Registration had been "modified" or suspended. I (WE can be stripped of our rights to prescribe opiates/opioids are class or C-II or C-III drugs) That was OK. She was aware whom my sister's brother is and she didn't eat the mess up and end up with habituation to benzes or sleep aids. I told her that's what happens and that's why we have office-used withdrawal protocols; I wrote them myself after consulting a number of sources in print and in person. Once I got over my initial anger.

Administrators and Supervisors always think, "How could a licensed MD make such a stupid decision?" And we conveniently forget that we weren't born with 20+ years of experience, such as the time I wrote script for Valium 40mg —I was thinking of: Prozac and one of our pharmacists caught it so that I could correct it. Benzos were "regular" C-IV Controlled Substances in those days, so this was an OK correction for an R.Ph. to make, with the prescriber's permission.

@Katie, No one was condemning. Hell I am the last person to condemn someone. I was giving you sound advice from a person who has been in your place. Do you actually think somebody is gonna email you a DR Feelgood. Hardly. My advice is what worked for me. I offered it and you took it as I was taking your inventory. All equal here Katie. TAKE ACTION and may you find what you need. I feel your pain but so will you unless you take action.

This is good advice (he said modestly). BuSpar can work if you work it, as the Nazis, say... in other words have a doc willing to play with the dosing sometimes even above the maximum recommended dose. It's a very low-toxicity drug. I don't describe it unless the pt is already on it or asks for it. It's not bad medicine to accommodate her and we do get some work done in therapy.

I would recommend you get your records from the Doc who diagnosed you with an anxiety disorder, And be careful what advice you listen to on this site, DR Joey (the good one lol) will give you the best advice but although he is very empathetic he will give it to you straight. And that is what this site needs. There is a lot of good info and then there is some BAD advice too! Get your records and if you are really going into major panic mode go to the ER be straight up with the Doc and they will usually give you a week and in that week you call a shrink or an internist and be HONEST and ask the Doc to work with you.Do not tell the receptionist you want xanax and if you were lucky enough to have gotten a weeks worth take that to your appointment. Have you tried some other meds. I was diagnosed with PTSD and buspar works well for me but it took a few weeks to get the dosage right, Good luck if you have good insurance call them and have then email you a list of Docs in your area, and if you can start to exercise and eat. Stay away from caffeine and anything else that is a stimulant. I hope you find the help you need!

I think I was unclear in my previous post. We have a condo in NYC so I don't die prematurely of stress- and traffic-related PTSD! My practice is in NYC and my hospital position just a little bit out on Long Island (it's 120 miles, so "a little bit" means 5 miles from the NYC border). This accident slowed me down a lot and that I had to use my own resources to get the pain meds I needed infuriated me. Fortunately, I"m old enough to have friends who were Board Certified anesthesiologists and EXEMPT or GRANDFATHERED fin re: these new regs. I got spoiled, since shrinks always have been given a lot of leeway with Controlled Substances. I treat our addicted patients with respect and dignity and my Sicilian temper goes into high gear when I hear a pain patient isn't getting properly medicated. I don't believe a "legit" pain patient is superior to an accident. I had migraines for years and scarfed down a lot of pain meds and benzos. Legit? Marginally, but I believe I can feel the pain of both addict and pain patients. I don't have patience for its trying to game the system and feel high while in a Drug Treatment Program. I see a lot of this on these forums. On methadone, but asking Klonopin can I take the week before my U/A? Some pts need maintenance meds, addicts or not. I have the licenses to write for some restricted drugs and, when necessary, I sign off on my Residents' orders.

Unless you presented on your first visit while having a serious Hypomanic Episode, I don't think I'd do a Ddx in five minutes. In fact, I know I wouldn't. The few residents I heard of who were doing this met "The BAD Dr Joey" (a best friend and colleague, a pediatrician in charge of the NICU said to a resident, "You don't wanna meet The BAD Dr Joey — do as he says. And she's senior to and has better creds than mine; she's also built like Lynda Carter as Wonder Woman: 6' without heels!) That's irresponsible medicine by any measure. I know how fear can stop us from doing what we really want to do. It's happened to me. I don't mention my past addiction except to drug/alcohol patients, but I won't lie if directly questioned (I"ll probably ignore the question. After a couple times, they get the message. For all my education, I can use the English language in its most graphic terms. "F***ed if it's any of your badness: works, too.)

@Dr Joey OMG you and I would make a hell of a team LOL. Your posts are beginning to be one of my fav things. You and I broke the molds, I was always one of the smartest kids in the class in fact I was going to law school but after hearing the horrors of the LSATS I chickened out and went for business, I really like the fact that you treat the LGBT community. I have some really good friends in my town who have finally gotten married and we have a pretty big gay community. Our downtown is full of artsy stuff and all kinds of galleries all within walking distance. But very little treatment for all of the inner city problems. We are an hour from NYC and an hour from Philadelphia so the gangs and dealers make the hour run drop off the goods and come back and pick up the loot. And we are left to pick up the pieces of the broken mess. Monthly waits for shrinks Mental health is a joke and the homeless rate has skyrocketed. So where do they turn, Drugs. Your posts give an air of hope and sound advice. How can you not respect a Doctor who has openly admitted to being an addict and who hires addicts. Not here in the Lehigh Valley of Pa. All of the treatment in Allentown is either medical assistance or cash. And with the DEA on the mission to control your practice no one will treat addiction. Hell Pa does not even have medical marijuana but you can cross a bridge where I live and be in New Jersey where they are starting some clinics. They have plenty of methadone clinics so a lot of people go there but it is a chain of for profit clinics and very expensive. I ask why and the rationale is if you can buy dope you can pay for methadone. I was also diagnosed by a shrink as bi polar after 5 min into the session. I ask him why he thought that and his reply was he could bring up a subject and I could discuss it. Now where did he go to school?? Buspar and I seem to be doing well together after my car accident I developed PTSD and fight it on occasion.Yoga helps and meditation,Early on I found exercise released those endorphin's so that is a part of my daily routine. Eating healthy is also a good rule, try and stay away from caffeine, it just makes stress worse for me. So those are my thoughts for a rainy Sunday morning. peace and to all of those who are still searching for the miracle cure. Look within, we all need help for your sake and those who love you get it.
