how to find a doctor prescribe xanax near gainesville fl
I have been taking subutex for 2 years now and was denied xanax by 2 diffetent doctors because I am on the subutex. Can doctors prescribe you xanax while on subutex? I have a new doctor I'm going to try out next week but don't know if I should tell him whether I'm on the subutex or not,, even if I don't tell them I'm worried about whether they'd be able to see it in the computer or not. Please respond asap anything will help.

good psychiatrist in Greensboro/High Point for anxiety/depression
I have battled anxiety my whole life and my current primary care doctor thinks it's a joke and simply told me "you'll grow out of it." Due to recent hardships in my life the anxiety has gotten much worse and now depression has developed. I made an appointment with a local Psychiatrist in Greensboro but I just looked over all of his reviews and it seems every patient who comes into his office is diagnosed bipolar and put on very strong anti psychotics with major side effects, I don't want that. I was hoping maybe some xanax or valium with a mild anti depressant and some good counseling. Any suggestions?

Alprazolam (ALMEE-1) India
Ordered generic Xanax (Alprazolam, 1 MG tabs) and got them today. They are blister packed from India and are GREEN with no inscriptions on either side of the pill. Anyone familiar with these and are they common or do they seem to be safe? ## This is an issue that has come up a lot recently, I advise you to be very careful. Some of these companies from India are sending the same pills to everyone as whatever they are ordering. There is no way to know for sure what they are, since they have no marking and are not from the U.S. I sure hope you aren't out a lot of money for them, or perhaps you can get a refund? ## the blister pack itself, as opposed to the pill designates the medication as alprazolam and the manufacturer. the manufacturer has been doing business in india since 1990. i ...

Xanax Purple Football Ifa
how many miiligrams and is it from Mexico ## Has anyone seen what is supposed to be xanax, that is a purple football shaped coated tablet with only a large A stamp on one side? ## I PURCHASED SEVERAL UPJOHN 90 PURPLE .ONE SIDE SAYS UPJOHN 90 SMOOTH AND ON THE OTHER. SIDE JUST SAYS UPJOHN 90..WHAT MG.IS THIS.COLOR IS DEEP PURPLE AND I FIND THEY R STRONGER THAN BLUE FOOTBALLS.

This medication carries the risk of being habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headach...

near hamilton alabama who will prescribe xanax
I need a doctor somewhere close to Hamilton Al. For xanax for cronic anexity disorder and helping stages of menopause. My doctor left to practice in California n I have full Medicaid on disability. The low dose of valum don't help. Can anyone help me? ## Hello, Stars! How are you? Benzodiazepines are not usually prescribed to help with menopausal symptoms. If hormones are not deemed appropriate, antidepressants, such as Prozac are commonly used. SSRI antidepressants can cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache, dry mouth and weight changes. As for anxiety, you'll need to see a specialist for that. Do you currently have a PCP that may be able to refer you to someone? That would likely be the easiest way to find the help you need. Benzodiazepines carry the risk of b...

refilling my valid Xanax prescription early
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 pharmecy 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...

Fake Xanax white R039
i recieved a white rectangle pill with R039 written on it.. its an actual R not the P and i dont think it had a ribbon effect neither im sure its R, i cant find it anywhere and im hearing different opinions saying its fake and its real. Anyone have any information on these? ## I have my doubts about this one as well, if it is as you describe. The genuine Alprazolam tablet, which would be a generic for Xanax, is yellow and has the stylized R followed by the numbers 039 all separated by score lines on one side. Learn more Alprazolam details here. Is there any chance you could send me an image of it? You can use medicationinformation@gmail.com ## Hey my names Corey.

pills from india with I.P. approval
PEX-2 Aprazolam white round tablets 2mg I.P. Manufactured by TR Pharma. In a silver 10 pack individually sealed. Xanax? I was told the I.P. means inspected and approved. Any information on that? ## Hello, Annie! How are you? They may have been inspected and approved by some agency in India, or elsewhere, but they have not been approved by the U.S. FDA, which is why they are not available here. This medication 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?
