Ok
Doctor: Dr. David, Board Certified Physician replied 2 months ago

I am sorry you are having such bad anxiety symptoms

yes, you can take another xanax now

but you should work with your doctor for additional treatments for your anxiety symptoms

there are medications like sertraline, fluoxetine, paroxetine which can help decrease anxiety symptoms.

medications like diazepam, clonazepam can help decrease anxiety

hydroxyzine, and propranolol can help as well

medical marijuana can help decrease anxiety symptoms as well

do you see a psychiatrist regularly?

I took one at 2:30ish. I am in deeply depressed. When would it be safe to take another?
Customer reply replied 2 months ago
I see a psychiatrist every 2 months.
Doctor: Dr. David, Board Certified Physician replied 2 months ago

you can take another xanax in 7-8 hours

you should talk to your psychiatrist about additional treatments I mentioned.

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.

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.
