Xanax Overview

Alprazolam, available under the trade name Xanax, is a potent, short-acting benzodiazepine anxiolytic—a minor tranquilizer.[3] It is commonly used for the treatment of anxiety disorders, especially of panic disorder, but also in the treatment of generalized anxiety disorder (GAD) or social anxiety disorder.[4][5] It was the 12th most prescribed medicine in the United States in 2010.[6] Alprazolam, like other benzodiazepines, binds to specific sites on the GABAA receptor. It possesses an...

Fake green oval xanax s902

Are there fake xanax s 902 green oval pills going around just had a prescription refilled at the pharmacy and they're not working at all compared to my normal Blue ones ## Hello, Bobby! How are you? I'm not aware of any fakes being reported and it would be very odd to get fakes from a licensed pharmacy. However, the FDA does allow generics to differ in the amount of the active ingredient by as much as plus or minus 20% from the name brand, so these ones might be a little lower in it, which could cause them to not work as well for you. The FDA warns that this mediation carries the risk of being habit forming and could cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache and irritability. Is there anything else I can help with? ## Got the same ones at a pharmacy--I was up all n...

454 Replies RSS
I was prescribed Prozac & Xanax 10 years ago by my psychiatrist for depression & severe panic attacks. He started me on 1mg 3 times a day. Around Dec 2005 he increased my daily dose to 1 mg - 4 times a day. I have been a patient of his now for 10 years where I see him every 3 months. Through the years, there has been a few times were I had to call to reschedule my appointment and a couple of times he had to do the same. He would call in my meds for the amount I would need to get me through to my next appointment. This month I had an appointment for May 27th I called to reschedule due to transportation. I do not drive now and my ride canceled on me. so, I rescheduled my app. for June 17th I then requested my meds be called in until my appointment, a 3 week supply. She said she wo...

Xanax and my other meds.
Post a Reply
I take 1 Xanax 3 times daily as needed for anxiety. They are 1mg each. And I also have a severe back injury witch I'm taking methadone for pain. I take 3 10mg tablets 2 times a day. My Question is When I'm taking my Xanax in the morning and my methadone should I Only take one of the type of medication and wait for some time before I take the other. Will one of the medications stop the other from working as well. Because most of the time in the morning I'm in so much pain I take my pain medication and my anxiety medication at the same time. And I feel like I didn't even take my anxiety medication ( Xanax generic) I don't know?

Help please! I am a 57 yr old Totally and Permanently USAF Vet. The VA Hosp I Want to do my Hip Replacement is the Wade Park VAMC in Cleve. My Medical Probs are severe and lengthy, but my only Psych need is for my increasingly-severe Panic Attacks, and my Anxiety Disorder, which had responded well to Xanax 1mg. However, in its ever-lasting quest to make a junkie of no one, The VA Dr here in SC recently tapered me off of my Xanax. In just over a month, I am moving back to the Warren-Y'town area (my locale for 40 yrs and then some) for a min of a year and a half to address the Phys. Stuff incl major Surgery. I am so far unable to find a Dr there who'll write the Xanax. I can drive around up there but no more than say 20mi each way fm Warren. Help! ## Look for a website like this o...

Xanax prescription needed tulsa

I need a doctor who will refill my prescription. My new doctor won't and my other dr retired. Help please. ## Hi Danny D, Personally, I think if you suffer from anxiety/depression and need a Benzodiazepine class medication (like Xanax), your best bet is usually to see a psychiatrist, rather than a regular medical doctor. They are better trained in the types of medications that handle these problems and can also help you treat the underlying cause of your anxiety or depression, as opposed to covering up the feelings and emotions with medication. You know what works best for you though! If I can recommend anything, it would be a combination of St. John's Wort and 5 HTP, and aromatherapy with essential oils- just because I find those options to be more natural than prescription opt...

Find A Doctor in Pittsburgh PA that prescribes xanax or klonopin that takes medical assistance
44 Replies RSS
Every doc I've met with here in Pittsburgh Pa will only take cash if they prescribe you xanax.. Very unethical but since I have insurance I would like to find a doctor to prescribe me the meds I need. I would take either although I like the Klonopin better, xanax cause my depression to worsen after I take them... Anyone know of any Psychiatrists that will take my insurance and prescribe me meds? ## The state medical insurance has very strict regulations regarding why a doctor may prescribe controlled substances, such as Xanax or Klonopin, which are Benzodiazepines. Thus, the doctor's have to go through a lot of paperwork and can get in a lot of trouble, if the state feels that something is out of line. Learn more Benzodiazepine details here. There is nothing that mandates that t...

xanax refilling prescription

Can i refill a 30 day prescription in 29 days , of xanax? ## Yes ## @timbo, I see you posted this a while back. Did you end up having any success in getting it filled early? I'm not sure if there are any specific laws regarding this matter (especially with only 1 day to spare), but I do believe your doctor is the one who is supposed to give you prior authorization towards getting a refill by a certain date. Some pharmacists also like to give patients a hard time when it comes to medications that are commonly abused. But if you go in there and they throw up resistence, it doesn't seem like there's much you can do as a customer, except wait it out or take your business to another pharmacy. Pretty one-sided in that sense. But since xanax is a controlled substance, I'd be in...

Refilling my valid Xanax prescription early
526 Replies RSS
I only see one doctor and he gives me a 3 month supply of xanax. When I went the last time he wrote me out a prescription but I still had two refills. I had a friend and her husband passed away and I gave her some of mine thinking I would have no problem re-filling the prescription. I had sense enough not to go to the same pharmacy and not to give my insurance information. So I go to this small drug store by my house and I had to fill out paperwork such as dob, name and my DL #. Well they paged me to the front of the store and advised me that it was 7 days to early for them to re-fill. So my question is where can I go to re-fill a prescription that is valid written by the same doctor. I only tried one place, I'm guessing they must have a data base if you try and refill your prescrip...

I need a dr that will prescribe heavy pain meds and Xanax in Pasadena area california ## I'm sorry, but there is no directory of physicians according to what they will or will not prescribe that I can refer to for you. Additionally, due to the new directives set forth by the DEA last year, you'll need to see specialists to have such medications prescribed, so in your case, that would most likely be one doctor for pain management and a psychiatrist for the Xanax. The FDA classifies Xanax as a benzodiazepine that's most commonly used to treat anxiety and nervous disorders. It carries the risk of being habit forming and could cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache and irritability. Do you currently have a PCP that may be able to refer you to someone? If so, tha...
