Only a doctor that is taking care of you, and has examined, and diagnosed you can prescribe xanax.

Anything else is a felony in the united stated.

Is that what you are asking?

Or do you need help finding a new doctor.

If you are trying to go around your doctor and find more medication of this type elsewhere, this is also a problem and can get you blacklisted at pharmacies.

What type of doctor do you have?
