My daughter does not like me taking xanax. I am suffering

This answer was rated:

My daughter does not like me taking xanax. I am suffering from depression (vibreed), anzixety (burporin) and xanax for panic attacks. Is there anyway that she can ask my psychologist whom I under constant care and also see a psychologist. They are taking very good care of me and I don't want to change any of the medications.

Can she take this action?

Hello, I'd like to help you with your question.

Your daughter can talk to your psychologist as long as your psychologist has a written release of information from you saying it is ok to release your information to your daughter. All you need to do is ask your psychologist about a release and they will be able to help.

It sounds like your daughter might be concerned with the addictive nature of Xanax. Xanax can be an addictive drug if used long term and you begin to take it outside of your prescribed dosage. But if you are under the care of a doctor while taking this medication and you take it as prescribed, it is unlikely that there will be an issue.

Your daughter can see a psychologist if she feels she has issues she wants to discuss. It is probably better if she sees someone other than the psychologist you see since there can be a conflict if your daughter or you have issues with each other. Your daughter can find a psychologist/therapist by talking to her doctor about a referral. She can also find one by searching on line. Here is a resource to help:
