Hello and thank you for using JustAnswer. Unfortunately this is not an online pharmacy so no prescriptions can written for you here. And also what I suspect is that you are probably looking for a prescription for a benzodiazepine which is a Controlled Substance and cannot be prescribed online as that is against federal law. The best solution you have to find a new psychiatrist that may be willing to prescribe for you the medications you need.

I know but in the meantime, until I find a new permanent doctor, how can I find a prescribing doctor? I'm out

Cold turkey... it's not right
Mental Health Professional: Dr. Z, Psychologist replied 2 years ago

I can provide you with a list of psychiatrists in your area, but as for when they will be able to see you is up to their schedule. Also every psychiatrist has complete discretion over what they prescribe their patients so there is no guarantee you will get the medication you are looking for. If this is a controlled substance the ER is probably not going to help either as they typically will not provide prescriptions for Controlled Substances.

They were prescribed by a family doctor, why do I need a psychiatrist now?
Mental Health Professional: Dr. Z, Psychologist replied 2 years ago

I am only saying that you will have a stronger chance of getting a prescription for a Controlled Substance by a psychiatrist rather than a Family Doctor. Most states now have regulations against family doctors prescribing Controlled Substances due to abuse by patients and over prescribing.

Good luck and I hope you can get the medications you need very soon.

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

Outstanding response time less than 6 minutes. Answered the question professionally and with a great deal of compassion.

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!!
