find a doctor that easily prescribes Xanax and adderall
I am going back to school in two days and am in desperate need of something to help me focus. Because of this problem, I ended up dropping out of this school a few years ago. Also I have major anxiety. I worry about everything, no matter how minuscule, have trouble sleeping because my mind is always racing. When I get super upset, I hyperventilate and feel like I can't breathe. ## Your mind could be racing because of the Adderall. Drugs like Xanax do not help you "focus" and is not a true sleep aid. Your best bet would be to stay off both? ## Hi, Melissa! Sorry about the problems that you're having. However, without knowing your general location, it's difficult for anyone to try to make any recommendations for a doctor that may help. Can you please post back and give...

My Doc will not refill my xanax Im feeling sick
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...

A Doctor That Will Prescribe Xanax In Or Around Nashville Tn
I have been having anxiety attacks for years and had mistaken it for severe depression. After having my third child they started to become out of control. I've seen a few doctor's that all seem to want to try a large combination of meds and diagnose me with a number of things... one doctor (that no longer is in this state) prescribed 1mg xanax and I felt as if I could get on my knees and cry out thank you. I felt cured. Then he left state and another doctor put me on ativan 1mg 2x a day and it didn't kick in until after the damage of the attack was done and after me freaking out or pulling over on road to cry... then it would last way longer and I felt a bit like a zombie where the xanax would kick in fast, take care of the issue and leave soon after. Too many ppl abuse the ...

New Federal Xanax Laws?
I have done a lot of reading on the new United States 2013 Xanax laws. There aren't any? You can still obtain up to a 6 month supply of any schedule IV (4) medicine which includes Xanax. Some States have limited MD's to writing for a 30 day supply even forcing you to see a Specialist and putting you on a 'performance plan'. Please do not confuse local and State laws with Federal laws! ## I haven't come across any new laws pertaining to the use of Xanax in my research either. Were you led to believe that there would be any sort of changes this year? Erowid tends to have a pretty up to date list of this type of information on an international level if you're interested in having a look: erowid.org/pharms/alprazolam/alprazolam_law.shtml I hope this helps! ## Yes tha...

blue football xanax upjohn 90
is and blue football shaped with Upjohn 90 on it at real or fake 1mg Xanax? ## Hello, Tab! How are you? According to what I've found, this is Pfizer's international version, which contains 1mg of Alprazolam, the active ingredient in Xanax. This medication carries the risk of being habit forming and could cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache and irritability. Are there any other questions or concerns?
