Customer Question
I had a family doc...
I had a family doc who I no longer see as if recent within last two months. She had put me on Xanax due to extreme anxiety dealing with a number of situations from taking care of a mother with MS to going thru a extreme custody battle. And after things began to get worse and worse the antidepressant meds no longer were working. I am having a difficult time getting into someone local and need help at least till then. If you could offer any help I'd be open to it. Thank you for your time,
Maggie

Hello and thank you for using JustAnswer. Unfortunately this is not an online pharmacy and because Xanax is a Controlled Substance no online pharmacies can prescribe this medication for you legally. I can provide you with names of psychiatrists in your area that specialize in treating Anxiety and Panic disorders, but it is based on their schedule when they can see and each psychiatrist has sole prescription discretion meaning that there is no guarantee that you will get the Xanax you are looking for. If you want the names of the psychiatrists in your area, please let me know your zip code and I can search them for you.

What Customers are Saying:

I can go as far as to say it could have resulted in saving my sons life and our entire family now knows what bipolar is and how to assist and understand my most wonderful son, brother and friend to all who loves him dearly. Thank you very much

Corrie MollPretoria, South Africa

I thank-you so much! It really helped to have this information and confirmation. We will watch her carefully and get her in for the examination and US right away if things do not improve. God bless you as well!

ClaudiaAlbuquerque, NM

KevinBeaverton, OR

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

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.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
