Hello and thank you for using JustAnswer. Unfortunately because Xanax is a Controlled Substance, only a psychiatrist can prescribe the medication face to face to you. Also the protocol for using Xanax is to use it for only 4-6 weeks to avoid addiction and abuse. So I would suggest that you continue to work with your doctors to find other non-addictive medications that you will not abuse. Good luck
