Hello, Southerncross! How are you? I'm sorry about the problem that you're having.

What pain mediation are you taking? Additional information would be enable me to find an answer for you.

The FDA lists Xanax as being a benzodiazepine that's most commonly used to treat anxiety and nervous disorders. It carries the risk of being habit forming and could cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache and irritability.

Hello, risyty3! How are you doing?

There's no way to know, that is entirely up to your new doctor. Some will, but some won't.

The best thing to do is not to ask for specific medications, when you see your new doctor, but to let your medical records speak for you, that way you don't look like a drug seeker, since Xanax is a controlled substance that is often abused.

Are there any other questions or concerns?
