Customer Question

I am a 38 year old male suffering from severe anxiety after a major event in my family last year. I am not on any other medications, I do not have a PCP, and simply need short term help. I was prescribed "Alprazolam" sp. and took it about 2-3 times per week. I believe I need some more help. That medication helped me tremendously. My family event will be lasting throughout next year, but I feel I my anxiety should subside by next June - fingers crossed. What should I do?

Hello from JustAnswer.

Have you already called to try to arrange an appointment and establish with a primary care physician?

Are you able to contact the doctor that had prescribed the medicine previously?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I have called my previous doctor's office; however, I am unable to receive further prescriptions as a result of no insurance.

I already called to try and arrange an appointment with my former PCP with no success.
Expert:  Dr. D. Love replied 1 year ago.

If you are unable to get an appointment with a primary care physician because of no insurance, then there would need to be consideration of other options in your community.

Where are you located? I realize that you would have entered your location when you registered for the site, but that information is confidential and even the experts cannot access it. Since there is discussion of sensitive personal medical information, keeping it separate from personal information is necessary to maintain privacy.

Okay. I cannot afford further costs. How do I go about cancelling this service?
Expert:  Dr. D. Love replied 1 year ago.

For me to look into options in your area would not entail additional costs, but if you want to cancel the service, then you can contact customer service to do so.
