Unfortunately, no one can really know ahead of time what a doctor is or is not willing to prescribe, as that is based on the doctor's discretion and not on someone else's previous appointment (especially since many doctor's are now worried about losing their licensing for prescribing too many narcotics/heavily controlled substances).

If you suffer from anxiety and need a Benzodiazepine class medication (like Xanax), usually your best bet is to see a psychiatrist rather than a regular medical doctor. Reason being is that they are better trained in the types of medications that handle these problems as well as having a better understanding of how to cope with situations in the event that you don't have your medication on hand. A good psychiatrist would also work on your behalf with a pain management physician who can offer more help with opioid dependency.

The other option would be to see a pain management doctor who you know has the ability to prescribe medications like methadone, but they may end up referring you to a psychiatrist for xanax if they are feeling reluctant to prescribe anything more than methadone.

Also, if you need any assistance locating pain management doctors within your general area, you can input your city or zip code in the link below for narrowed results:

I hope this info helps!

You are a dope addict, no doctor who wants top keep his license will prescribe that combination,, IN ANY STATE,,much less KY.

You won't find one to prescribe you the methadone,, if you mention xanax or anything else to go with it,,,,

Sorry it's against the law to prescribe both together because it can and may kill you,so good luck I've been trying to do the same thing for months.

Hi Sleepless In Kentucky
In my experience with opioids and Xanax,my psychiatrist took me off my Xanax said I couldn't have that and the hydrocodone and Embeda er,i wrote the governor of my state and he wrote back and said he was watching how the DEA was going about taking are medical rights away you might say,well needless to say after about 2 months of not getting my Xanax all i had to do is sign a waiver for either the CDC or the DEA and i got my Xanax back,but he is limited to how much he can give me because I take the hydrocodone and Embeda,so if you find a Dr see if you can just sign the waiver to get the Xanax.Good luck to you

No, IT IS NOT AGAINST THE LAW!!! I'm prescribed 90mg methadone & 4 mg klonopin per day... perfectly legal. Also, if not abused, there are zero health risks... i.e overdose. Been on both for 10 yrs. Please, don't give ppl a bad name who take their meds as prescribed by abusing opiates & benzos!!!

Don't listen to the ignorant a-hole that called you a dope addict. Some people STILL don't realize (and here it is 2017!) that what we have is a disease. I am in the same boat as you. I go to a methadone clinic and they let me have a prescription for Klonopin because it is the safest of all the benzos. Unfortunately I live in Tennessee and my methadone clinic is in Asheville North Carolina so I can't really help you there. But please don't give up looking because there are doctors out there that will write benzos while you are on methadone... maybe not xanax but try to get klonopin or ativan. You might have better luck that way. I hope I've helped you even a little! Good luck!

Re: Jeff (# 2)

I guess you are one of those folks that consider anything you take as "medicine" while another person taking the same thing you take (in ur opinion) are low life drug addicts! My sis once told me she had severe panic attacks & could not leave home. I laughed at her, thinking "it's just in ur mind" - that is, until I started having panic attacks. This site is for people to help others, nor criticize them! I pray you never have a full blown panic attack!
