Customer Question
I was currently prescribed...

I was currently prescribed 2 3mg er. A day and 2 1 mg fast acting prn and my phycatrist lost his license I am very frightened from the withdrawal and he just got me up to that much and my seizures pretty well stopped what do I do

Doctor's Assistant: Have you seen a doctor about this yet? What medications are you taking?

No I haven't yet I still have a few weeks supply left I'm scared about what to do after I run put or right before I run out

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the psychologist should know?

I have multiple tbis and suffer from phycogenic convulsions and extremely high anxiety and panic attacks

Doctor's Assistant: How long have you been dealing with this? Is there anything in particular that seems to make the symptoms better or worse?

They get worse wen I'm anxious nervous excited or I get really hot and it's been great since he got my meds straightened out I know that's a lot of xanax but it's way less scarier than having the ones and stare seizures

Hello -

In situations such as this, your regular doctor can prescribe these medications for you until you are able to get a new patient appointment with a new psychiatrist.

It is not your fault he lost his license, and so your primary care doctor should be able to help you to make sure you continue to have a supply of the medication, without having to go through withdrawal.

Best of luck.

I feel better already! Thank you.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
