Customer Question

hello I have been taking zanax or ativan for 31 years as I obviously have very bad panic disorder or attacks. I never had a problem with my doctor giving me them because he knows tha I need them. I also take pain meds for a herniated disc and pinched nerve which I had surgery for and the mrs confirm I need a second surgery. I have severe lower back and siatic nerver pain. Now there is a new law that you cant take both bezos and pain meds unless a pyschaitrist prescribes them do you know any that is in Nashvilee to Cookeville are that I can see do I can get my zanax. I go toa pain clinic for pain meds
Thanks George
