I would not report this to anyone if you haven't doe so.It would affect your employment and they might drug test you.Stay silent here hopefully you get the job and this just gets lost in the system.It would not look good to report this to doctor and make record.Its in the past and not on the radar.I would not report this to your psychiatrist.

I appreciate the chance to help you tonight, prayers to you and the job working out.

If you can positive rate5 stars it is always truly appreciated.

No you did not understand. I have to tell the doctor that I am out of XNAX in 8 dyas insted of 30 days. Doctor might put me in hospiotal, I need to pack and get ready for travel

Tough situation, you could wait and go to new doctor in Texas and see if you can get script there.I agree you need to be real careful here.I would try another doctor here as a possibility.Current shrink is not likely going to give you more and might well hospitalize you.You might see if you can borrow some xanax from a friend or relative.

No you cannot loose your job here, you may just tell the shrink you are moving and see if he would give you a refill to travel with , you had a prescription here and are legal to take them.
