How To Find A Doctor To Prescribe Xanax In Tennessee Who Take Blue Or Tenncare

Gary Says:

My Girlfriend is 26 years old and she suffers from a huge anxiety problems and panic attacks on a daily basis. However because of her age we cant find a doctor to prescribe her xanax because so many people her age do abuse prescription drugs and sell them. We know its very addicting but she been on them for seven years and we move for about a year and was having to get them off the streets and moved back to Tenn and there a huge difference in how she reacts to daily life without them. She isa different person when she get them and keeps better control of her self when on them. We feel that she should be on xanax for the rest of her life. So if anyone knows a doctor that would prescribe her xanax around Chattanooga or anywhere in bradley county TN, Please let us know we would really appreciate it thank you

If you suffer from anxiety and need a Benzodiazepine class medication, your best bet it 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 many GPs are reluctant to prescribe controlled substances due to abuse and the heavy regulations that they have to abide by from the government.

When you see a new doctor, you will also want to make sure that you take all of your medical records with you, or have them sent to the doctor's office, so they can see the diagnosis from other doctors, as well as what medications have and have not worked for you in the past.


Are there any questions or comments?

Dr Robert Spaulding, he is a psychiatric & used to write them for me, but he no longer accepts insurance of any kind, so I'm in the same boat looking...... I'm trying another Dr Spaulding ( I think it may be his son) he writes benzos for a friend of mine & we both need them & suffer from major anxiety.

I am 51 have generalized anxiety disorder like your girlfriend it started in my 20s...another alternative is beta blockers controls SYMPTOMS such as heart racing , shaking is used for blood pressure but works for anxiety...I was also given buspirone this is for anxiety...when you are young dr.s hesitate ....if she can she needs to see a psychiatrist not psychologist...psychiatrists are m.d. s can write scripts psychiatrist would object to starter doses of Ativan or xanax if the need is legit...believe me I know the hell from what you say she is legit. I am on 2mg. Xanax e.r. 3x per day total 6 mg very high dose but when your brain isn't wired right this is a physical's the only way I can live normally, my doc says I will always need to be on anti-anxiety meds...I only have to see him every six weeks at $135.00 I don't have insurance but if you keep aside 20 or so dollars a week it is not such a hit...enquire about psychiatrists....not family dr. This is what they do I am sure there are psychiatrists where you live....she needs help good luck to you

Becca what doctor do you use? Mine retired and no one will even see me because of the same prescription you are on I had and they don't want to do that.
I'm starting to have anxiety so bad I can't even leave the house anymore. No school or work. I've been trying to find one for over a month now.

I also live in Maryville and suffer from anxiety disorder, however I have been very unlucky in finding a doctor to treat and prescribed xanax or other anxiety medications for me. Can you please give me the info on the doctor you're talking about? I do not have insurance, but I'm willing to shell out what I can for help.

I am in Knoxville and was on 5mg of xanax per day, and my doctor just up and moved her practice and closed without notice. I had to go to ER for a seizure because I had one after no meds for 2 days. Can you let me know the info you were gonna give her. I am desperate, the ER Dr. Wrote me 3 days worth cause she said I could die. I have been on them 6 yrs after a rape, and the man was released from jail 2 yrs ago...I cant function without them at all. {edited for privacy}. Thank you.

Re: Paula (# 80) Expand Referenced Message

Xanax has some very concerning side effects. While it should work as designed, discontinuing Xanax has side effects which can kill you, or make you very sick. Aside from potential tolerance problems & cognitive issues sometimes showing up in your later stage of life, with the lack of dependable providers these days, I'd avoid this medicine unless you only need it for short term use

Re: Robyn (# 75) Expand Referenced Message

Hello Robyn, Knoxville is close enough. Please share who the Dr. Is. I tried every medicine out there and Xanax was the only thing that works with no side effects. I don't even need to take it but 3 or 4 times a month for sudden panic. I can't find anyone to prescribe it and I can't keep a job without it. Sudden public panic attacks are so embarrassing! Please share any Dr. Information you have.
