Customer Question

I am currently getting treatment for hepC, and have been diagnosed with non alchoholic stage 4 liver cirosis. I am responding very well to the Harvoni, but will have the cirrosis for life , however long that is. I have been and am being treated for stress and anxiety, even previous to this diagnosis. I suffer from anxiety attacks and much more so lately. I am currently in MA being treated and visiting my daughter and two year old grand daughter. My Doctor back home in Janesville ,WI where I am from has always given me a hard time about filling my prescription, or I should say his nurse does. He has prescribed .05 tablets to be taken one time daily, and prescribes 20 tabs at a time. My liver specialist says that the xanex is fine for mr to take at least 3 times daily as he wants me to avoid stress and anxiety because it could worsen my condition. My Doctor in Wisconsin or I should say his nurse is adament about keeping me at 1 tab per day and prescribing only twenty tabs at at time, only when 20 days have passed. This has been very difficult for me out here as I cannot find a local Doctor who can fit me in thier schedual before mid July and I am going home to Wisconsin July 10th. Leaving my daughter and grand baby is a huge stress in its self. I need to have access to at least 3 tabs a day, as my liver specialists suggests but he does not handle that part of my care and asks me to contact my primary doctor. Who is only in the office 2 to 3 days a week and is difficult to contact. He is soon retirering. Can you possibly get a prescription for me at 3 tabs a day with 30 tabs prescribed at a time?
JA: OK. The Psychologist will need to help you with this. Is there anything else the Psychologist should be aware of?

Hello and thank you for using JustAnswer. This is not an online pharmacy so no prescription will be written for you here. Also because Xanax is a Controlled Substance it cannot be prescribed online and thus you must go to a doctor face to face.
