I suffer from severe panic attacks on a daily basis. im a perfect example of a person that needs medicine and is unable to get it because of so many people abusing prescription drugs. I have such severe anxiety and panic attacks and cant find a doctor to prescribe me xanax because im only 25 and its so addicting. but what they dont understand that i should be on xanax for the rest of my life because my anxiety is so bad. So if any1 knows a doctor in the monmouth county area of new jersey that will prescribe me xanax please let me know...thank u
Actually, part of your problem is that you are so convinced that you need that specific medication and are already insisting you will need it for life.
This will automatically make doctors wary of prescribing it, because, even though you may not intend it, it screams drug addict/drug seeker.
Not only are there other Benzodiazepines on the market, but there are also other anti-anxiety medications available, such as Buspirone. Some antidepressants can also be effective at helping.
You really need to work with a doctor to try whatever medication(s) they suggest to find the one(s) that work best for you, rather than demanding a specific medication.

It seems to be a stalemate -- if you ask for Xanax, you can't get it.
I started taking it over 10 years ago. I have moved several times since then and it has been difficult at best to find a doctor to prescribe it. I have a long history with many medications and none of them have been as effective at treating any symptoms as Xanax has been for treating my persistent anxiety. Basically, there is a reason it was used in the first place: it works.
I also feel frustrated by the fact that because other people abuse it, I have to look and look for someone to prescribe it for me. If this fits the profile of a so-called 'drug seeker', then I am in a bind. What else can I do other than ask for it?

@ Verwon: Do you seriously think I've never heard of Buspirone? It's just one in the long list of drugs that did not help me. I have been taking antidepressants among other psych meds since I was 14 years old and I am now 40. I have subjected myself repeatedly to all varieties of tricyclics, SSRI's, norepinephrine reuptake inhibitors, and combinations thereof; I've even tried MAOI's. I have also tried other benzos -- Klonopin and Valium -- and they don't help me. I have been in treatment by therapists for the better part of my life; individual, family, and group. I have suffered from paralyzing anxiety attacks since I was a young child. I never said I would need it for the rest of my life; I do have periods when I don't use it because I don't always feel it's necessary. In fact I hate being on drugs, I don't even like to drink alcohol or smoke cigarettes, the most popular 'crutch' drugs (which are much more dangerous than Xanax, but don't require a prescription). If you're wondering, it was a doctore who suggested Xanax to me -- how do you think I started using it in the first place? I benefit from using it for generalized and situation-specific anxiety. What I don't benefit from is sanctimonious lecturing about what I do, under the monitoring of a trained psychiatrist who specializes in anxiety, to function more easily and make life more bearable.

I've tried every anxiety medication under the sun . I don't think you could name one I haven't tried because I honestly didn't want to be on a benzo but after years of being plagued by my panic attacks and anxiety which has messed up jobs and my college education . I be done the self help groups, therapy, and an obscene amount of non benzo meds . Finally I realize that Valium / alprazolam are the only two things that relieve my anxiety . I've been through soo many psychiatrist s I'm at the point of Giving up . I live in cape may county . Please if anyone knows a doctor that is not brain dead and willing to prescribe Valium alprozalom or atavan please let me know . This isn't someone trying to get high and abuse it . I'm really suffering and if I hear another doctor try to give me busbar clonidinecelexa gabapetin etc idk what to do . I exercise I try to meditate and all that self help bulls*** doesn't always work and I'm tired of being treate with these bulls*** meds when I'm suffering

Did you ever find a doctor in Monmouth County? I am literally in the SAME EXACT situation you are in. I suffer from severe anxiety and panic attacks since I lost my 2 1/2 yr old son 10 years ago and my doctor would not give any higher of a dose until i saw a psychiatrist. I saw the psychiatrist and she seems to (after one 45min session) diagnosed me as bipolar which I do not think is the proper diagnosis. I feel like she wants to push off the anxiety for bipolar and give me anti-seizure/psych meds rather than just prescribing the xanax that I KNOW WORKS for me! It makes no sense to me that she'd give me these other drugs that make me walk around like a zombie. I'm so frustrated as to what to do from here. I live in Monmouth County as well so any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

I am wondering if you happened to see the same doc i did. I see you wrote "she" when referring to the doctor. I have no idea why it is such a problem to get xanax prescribed if it works for you. I have tried it all and nothing works well except xanax. If you aren't abusing them and aren't running out early then I just don't see the problem. Did you ever find a doc in Monmouth Co? I'm in the same area and still looking for another doctor

a psychiatrist that you will plan to see regularly and they can have your history etc., is more likely to prescribe xanax than another type of doctor. If needed and not abusing as you say you are not then i don't think a good psychiatrist will have a problem prescribing it to you responsibly with monthly follow up. thanks.

I believe if you see psychiatrist and explain your situation he or she will give you xanax. But having been through the xanax mill, I would certainly bring up the subject of moving to valium at some point. It's been my experience that Dr. are much more willing to write a script for valium than xanax. Xanax is a hot issue right now and new restrictions have been placed on doctor regarding writing scripts for it. Lastly, finding a good psychiatrist is like shopping for a used car, it sometimes takes time to find a good one. I live in Monmouth county and at one point, I was driving to Doylestown PA, just to see a psychiatrist that I felt knew what he was talking about. Over the years, I've found a good number of LOUSY psychiatrists. Good Luck

Dr. Finelli Doylestown PA or at least that's where he used to be. You could probably do just as well on Valium. Xanax is a specific type of beno, that differs from the others. I hope this helps and hope you will find a non-drug answer to your problem - long-term use of benzo, I'm talking more than a decade of chronic use can have serious cognitive effects, but, this guy wouldn't let that happen.
