Hello and thank you for using JustAnswer. Because one of your medications is a Controlled Substance you require a face to face evaluation with a psychiatrist in order to get that prescription. I would recommend making appointments with nearby psychiatrists so that you can explain your symptoms. There is no guarantee that you will get what you want in terms of a prescription because all prescriptions are up to the doctor's discretion, but seeing a psychiatrist is the best opportunity you have at getting the appropriate medications.

I know that i don't know where to begin feel very overwhelmed was refered to site I just need name of recommended Dr to visit Monday morning as I explained I'm not from the area or I would have went to where I know I can get treated.
Expert:  Dr. Z replied 1 year ago.

I can provide listings of psychiatrists in your area, but it is unlikely they will have an appointment opening for you on Monday as most psychiatrists have long waiting lists for months. This website only provides information, we do not coordinate with psychiatrists or other mental health professionals for appointment schedules.

I'm not satisfied and would like refund I already knew the answers you replied I'm very aware alprazolam is controlled substance. I will just got to local er now thanks for nothing

Sorry you were not satisfied. A local ER will not prescribe a Controlled Substance either, so your best chance is to go see a psychiatrist, but like I said it will take months for an appointment in most cases. I wish you all the best and you can contact customer service for your refund request.
