Sorry to hear about your experiences.
There are some alternatives to alprazolam.
In the same group, you can be switched to clonazepam.
Clonazepam does not have stigma like alprazolam has.
Another option will be to consider starting on a SSRI like paroxetine.
Paroxetine has good effect in controlling anxiety.
Other options are: Hydroxyzine, Buspirone.
However, alprazolam causes physical dependence.
Hence, gradual taper is recommended if you are switched to a different group of medication.
It will be better for you to see a psychiatrist for better management.
But your primary care doc also can manage with above suggestions.
Will I be able to get this drug or will I go through the same Bullsh--t they don't carry it or my In surance no longer covers it?
All these medications are fully covered and no problem with them.
