@sick and tired: Thanks for your endorsement. I prescribe — and take — benzos. I don't just do a one-size (Xanax) fits all tx plan. That's not good medicine; it's borderline malpractice. I have GAD and PAD. When I told my shrink, I was sure I had GAD, he prescribed Xanax; as time progressed, we realized I had PAD "minus one" — I've never had the strong feeling that if I didn't get out of where was, I would die or be killed. Just about all of my PAD patients had the full compliment of symptoms listed in the DSM. Meanwhile, my shrink and I decided that it was time to use the DOC for PAD — Klonopin. It works very well. S & T is right — you do not TELL your doctor what he is to prescribe, even though you certainly can tell a new doc what you've been on a for what. If you wanna write or own scripts go to medical school and take the licensing Boards. I may decide that you don't needXanax, but another med. That's why I have an MD after my name. This sense of entitlement is unbelievable. S&T is write that doctor who write for bushels of Xanax are being looked at by the DEA, your state Controlled Substance Bureau or both. Generally, S&T's statements are spot on. There are occasional exceptions, such as a short-term script following a death in the family, but basically Xanax is officially indicated for PAD and I'm not sure if GAD if officially listed, but we do prescribe it for that disorder as well.

Wow I have never seen so many people trying to find a doctor for xanax. As Dr. Joey says xanax is a short acting drug that is usually only prescribed when you have DOCUMENTED history of PTSD or GAD if you don't know what they stand for you don't need xanax. If you have no Family Practitioner get one, I feel like I am repeating a former post. If you are experiencing panic attacks on a regular basis.Which means your heart is racing you feel like an elephant is on your chest then go to an ER. Let them do a work up on you and if they feel you are in need of a drug they will give it to you, If you are addicted to opiates and you have not seen treatment chances are you may or may not be abusing prescription drugs. Get into treatment and beat one drug at a time. The link AJ posted is great but if you or I can find a Doctor who prescribes the most xanax prescriptions I bet the DEA has him on a watch list. So get a game plan be honest. Remember when Mom said the best policy is honesty, well Mom was right the same as make sure you change your underwear every day ya never know whats gonna happen. I feel for you and by no means have the answer to the Big debate over benzo's I just know from personal experience I have a great Doctor who I am honest with and he prescribes me what I need, I have been around the block a time or two and this is what has worked for me. if you have no insurance buy some. If you can not afford them you may qualify for medicaid. If you do have insurance call them and ask for a list of doctors in your area. Medical records are important they are what your doctor needs to prescribe correctly and your lifeline to good health no matter what your problem is. Good luck to all and read DR. Joeys posts.

I've been through an opioid detox. I went into an expensive Hospital for 7 days and 8 weeks of outpatient therapy. It worked, but now I get severe anxiety! I don't abuse Xanax, but it's the only way I can get a few hours of sleep. I wish I didn't need it, but I don't. I've tried to not take my Xanax for 4 nights, I didn't sleep all 4 days. Every time I would start dosing off my whole body would jerk me awake! I had to go back to the meds. I'm not ready to attempt to go off them yet. I don't have expensive Insurance any more, so I can't detox, even if I wanted to! I hope to change, but I'm afraid of no sleep!! Good luck. Don't start them. I don't recommend them to anyone. Unless you're not an addictive personality type.

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.

@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.
