Xanax For Anxiety: How Can I Get A Prescription For Xanax?

I've exhausted every possible avenue I can to find a doctor who will prescribe Xanax to me with no success. They all simply think I am looking for a high or they are too afraid to write it for me. I've wasted so much money on doctors just to be told "No" in so many words. I took xanax for nearly four weeks after buying some from a friend. It completely changed my life. I didn't feel anxiety, my mind felt clear, I could breathe, and I wanted to be around people and better myself. The medication is amazing, yet, it seems impossible for me to get a prescription? Do you have any advice for me?

Answer

I am not a medical professional, however, through the years I have spoken to many in regards to situations similar to yours. One of the red flags of abuse is when a patient asks for a specific medication rather than asking for help with a condition or specific symptoms. In addition, if you have explained to doctors that you took this medication without having a prescription, they would certainly be cautious about giving you a prescription.

Are you talking with doctors and asking for Xanax and not seeking treatment for anxiety? If a doctor suggests a different medication, do you immediately dismiss it and indicate you only want Xanax?

My suggestion would be to focus less on a specific medication and seek help for managing your symptoms of anxiety. Doctors may be more helpful if they are confident you are seeking medical help.
