Hello from JustAnswer.
The other expert has opted out.
However, you did not clarify what question you are asking.
What information are you seeking?
I had asked for clarification of what information you are seeking.
Xanax is one of several medicines that your doctor may prescribe for anxiety. Like the lorazepam, the Xanax is a benozdiazepine, and both are controlled substances. By federal law, you can only be prescribed a controlled substance by a doctor that has performed a personal face-to-face evaluation. Any doctor that prescribes Xanax without performing this evaluation would be violating federal law.
So, if you are considering the use of Xanax to treat anxiety, this is something that would require discussion with your doctor at your next visit.
If there is other information that you are seeking about Xanax, please let me know.
