My psychiatrist is out of town until after the holidays and at our last visit she forgot to give my usual prescription for alprazolam which I need for serious anxiety attacks that bedevil me and also to help me with problems related to ADHD
, Bipolar Disorder and depression, all of which she has diagnosed me with.
My normal prescription is a 90 day supply of up to 4 2 mg tablets daily.
There are days when I don't need it and days when 4 aren't enough but I never take more than that.
I only have enough tablets for 8 days assuming I take 4 each day. With Christmas and New Year approaching and all of the things I need to do I am very concerned that I could have a very serious episode if I don't find a way to get another prescription soon.
My Psychiatrist will not return until January 15.
I called her office in November after our last appt. to tell her this but she was already gone and I did not hear back from her. I called again a week later but her assistant told me she was already gone away and would probably be out of reach while away.
I am getting very scared and even panicked about this.
I have been taking alprazolam for years and it works very well for me. Without it things
can be so bad that at times I am not able to function normally or at all.
Is there anything you can recommend I do?
