how to find a doctor prescribe xanax in phoenix
Son is 24 and has high anxiety, was through chemo many years ago, things not the same. Dr here in Phoenix area we went to gave him xanex and then said to that Zoloft. No way in he is taking that. He only wants like 1 pill every couple of days or so. This is an extremely talented individual that has had a serious lack of motivation and energy since going through the chemo and radiation. Dr. prescribed and wouldn't refill without ANOTHER $75 appointment and said he would need to do that monthly or even less. Said it's controlled substance. However he knows others who have regular prescriptions and he really needs it. The system sucks and now it really sucks. ## Sorry to hear about your son. I have had no problem obtaining Xanax in Arizona. If you can drive near Laughlin I can prov...

Phoenix AZ Need Doctor Who Will Write Shoret Term Xanax, Ativan, Klonipin for Tremors??
I am stuck in a horrible limbo land. My old doctor suspected I may have MS and suggested I see a neurologist. I agreed and had to wait 18 months to make the appointment because I've spent all my money tracking down every symptom over the past 8 years. Now I got in to see the neuro at Barrows but he only said he has to get MRI scan before he write any prescription. That was fine except he never wrote the order and I spent 3 weeks calling and begging. Finally got order but no scan till June. Now this MS has gotten so bad I cannot drive or work, I shake non-stop, The shaking is so bad I have broken 2 teeth in the past 2 weeks, He said it was OK to take xanax for shaking which I did because I had an old script for it from back in 2006. I called his nurse to ask now what since I used the...

xanax doctors Medicaid
I'm looking for a doctor who accepts Medicaid and will prescribe me xanax & Prozac. I've been on xanax for several years now and I was seeing a TN doctor. Well that doctor's office told me they no longer accept KY Medicaid, without any notice until I arrived for my appointment. Needless to say I was very upset. I suffer from anxiety and depression both, and I'm having trouble finding a doctor who will continue my medications. I was referred to the mental health center, I saw a psychologist, who set me up with an appointment with a psychiatrist by the name of Dr. Grey. Unfortunately, the earliest they could get me in is January 12, 2015. I've talked to a lot of people about him who have either seen him or knows someone who has and no one has anything good to say a...

i need to find a doctor in missouri that will prescribe me xanax
i have been on canal for 30 years my doctor moved and I'm seeing one in ks. who calls me in randomly. for us a!! I have never been in any trouble and I'm 51not going to be treated like I'm on parol. Greg ## Hello, Greg! How are you? I'm sorry about the problems that you're experiencing. However, since Xanax is a controlled substance that is frequently abused, doctors do have to be very careful about prescribing it and most are going to make you do similar things, in order to continue having it prescribed. Many do random pill counts, too. This medication is most commonly used to treat anxiety and nervous disorders. Typical side effects may include nausea, dizziness, headache, mood swings and irritability, this medication also carries the risk of being habit forming. D...

round white xanax no markings
About the size of US valium with a split score on one side. ## Doesn't sound like any Xanax? ## @Tom, Depending where or who you got this from, my guess is that it's either a home-made counterfeit or manufactured in some other country outside of the US, where they are known for selling discreet unmarked drugs. One thing is for certain though, and that is, that it's definitely NOT a legitimate "US-based" prescription drug, since the FDA requires all of these medications to have markings for determining the substance, dosage, and manufacturer. But if you have any other specific details relating to how you came about getting it, I think that will help give us a strong indication as to whether or not it's even real. Also, how would you assume that it's xanax if t...

White Xanax Bar G3722
the two G"s are different. 1 is more angular and 1 is rounded. just FYI ## The more rounded 1s r real. KMXUA ## @Casey, To confirm, the pill you have is in fact Xanax (Alprazolam) 2 mg. Xanax (Alprazolam) is primarily used to treat moderate to severe anxiety disorders (e.g., social anxiety disorder) and panic attacks, and is used as an adjunctive treatment for anxiety associated with moderate depression. Manufacturer: Greenstone Limited National Drug Code (NDC): 59762-3722 The difference in the look of the G's could just mean that they are from two different manufacturers. Learn More: Alprazolam Details If you have any more questions or concerns, please post back and I will be happy to help you. ## I have recently got some white Xanax 2 mg with G3722 on them. when I took one I f...

be careful of benzos/xanax
I was prescribed 2mg of xanax 3 Times a day for years. PLEASE be careful when taking this medication. I was not told this, but the first time i went 24 hours without xanax, i had a grand maul seizure, and 2 more times without xanac. I finally had a dr switch me to valium ant weaned off of benzos completely. Unfortunately, because of the seizure activity i already had, i am now epileptic. I've had 3 more grand maul seizures without being on benzos at all. They did a ct scan and i have nothing causing them, so xanax has caused me to become epileptic. Please people, BE VERY CAREFUL WITH ALL BENZOS! ## Hello, Dee! How are you doing? I'm very sorry about what happened to you. Yes, if you've been taking benzodiazepines for a long period of time and suddenly stop, the withdrawals c...
