Hello, this is Dr. David. I am reviewing your question now and will be with you momentarily.

Expert:  Dr. David replied 26 days ago.

why are you taking xanax? for anxiety?

if you start to take two milligrams, you will run out of your xanax sooner.

you have to talk to your doctor about increasing your dose so your doctor knows you are taking more.

who is prescribing you xanax?

when can you get back to see your doctor?

October 18th I'm going through a really really really awful divorce and I'm having a lot of problems
Expert:  Dr. David replied 26 days ago.

then you should call up your doctor and let them know

you didn't answer my question

are you taking xanax for anxiety symptoms?

I can't give you permission to take two xanax pills.

you can call up your doctor tomorrow and talk to the doctor or nurse by phone.

I'm taking it for anxiety but she doesn't want me to take the to milligram because she wants me to start gradually take coming off and coming off of it I've only been on it like 2 months
Expert:  Dr. David replied 26 days ago.

it sounds like you may need to find another doctor who will be more willing to treat your anxiety symptoms.

She's already stole every dime I've got out of the bank and all the money that I had hid in the house so I'm starting over with nothing I've lost probably 30 pounds does Xanax helps me eat and lay me to sleep butt I feel that my body has reached a Peak at the one milligram and is not working

Well around here I live in a small town and if you do that they consider that doctor shopping if you know what I mean I mean there's like 2000 people in my town
Customer: replied 26 days ago.
I was under the impression I could go on here and just get a prescription through y'all for the 2 milligram
Expert:  Dr. David replied 26 days ago.

no, that is the wrong impression.

we are doctors here online to answer medical questions, not to give out prescriptions.
