Have Medical Questions? Ask a Doctor Online!
Hello from JustAnswer.
I am sorry, but it is unclear - what question you are asking about the Xanax?
It is a violation of federal law for a doctor to prescribe Xanax based on an internet interaction.
We can discuss the information regarding the remaining questions, if that would be helpful to you.
We are not able to arrange appointments through this web site.
It is also a violation of federal law to prescribe Xanax based on a phone interaction.
I have not heard back about whether the information would be helpful.
Xanax can help with panic attacks and trouble sleeping. The problem with Xanax is more with long-term daily use, as long-term daily use can make the problem worse. In someone that is needing Xanax daily for a longer period of time, the doctors will frequently try to find a different medicine to use. The Xanax may still be used for breakthrough symptoms, but if the use of the Xanax can be minimized, then it is not as risky to use for longer periods of time.
The only legal way to obtain a prescription is from a doctor that has performed a personal face-to-face evaluation. Once a doctor has performed such an evaluation, refills may be able to be done via alternate communication, such as by phone, but it can only be after an initial evaluation.
