Hi, I'm Dr Palmer. It sounds like your anxiety has worsened due to a particular issue/situation? What are you currently taking, and when did you start taking it?
1 mg once a day as needed? Obviously that is a lot to handle for anyone, not to mention for someone with underlying anxiety disorder. Do you have panic attacks?
Meaning hyperventilate, chest pain, pounding in chest, sweats, nausea to the point almost passing out?
Is the separation not mutual? Are there children involved? What is it about the separation that worries you the most. It's good to try to narrow that down. Because I assure you, no matter how difficult this may be, you will be okay and you will get through this.
No I cant prescribe medication. Klonapin is good though. Its a benzodiazipine, the best medication for panic attacks. You can certainly double up on the dose and take 2mg. It's also good to call someone close, a family member to talk and to not be alone. Also a very cold wash cloth over your forehead, lying down is helpful.
Medication is only one component to treatment. Often times when you are having a panic attack, meds will only take the edge off. Also, you can also take a klonapin, 1 or 2. Then a 50 mg dose of Benadryl. That can be helpful as well.
I cannot prescribe those kind of medications unless I do a physical exam. So you have no more meds left? What you should do is try to concentrate on what to do next. She took the children from you? Are there attorneys involved? Have you made the environment unsafe, or is she now just unhappy and took them. She really can't just take your children away. The first thing you should do is call a divorce attorney in the am if that's the way this is headed.
That kind of medication is a common drug of abuse, a schedule IV drug, therefore it cannot ever be prescribed online or over the phone.
You also need to see a counselor, this will be the MOST helpful more than meds. If she is willing to attend with you, that would be better even if reconciliation is not probable at this point.
You should be able to call your doctor, or someone on call any time. If they know you then they might be able to call your pharmacy and prescribe.
Also, you could walk in to any urgent care or ER and they would help you with meds.
Your welcome, take care
