Question: I'm 38 years old and have been taking 2mg Xanax
for 9 years for a severe anxiety
condition. My former psychiatrist
left to purse inpatient health care and her replacement was a nightmare. She doesn't like to prescribe Xanax therefore decided to wean me off in 3 weeks time! I threw up and almost had a seizure
several times. I lost my job, can't pay my bills and my anxiety is unbearable. My anxiety is a disease that my medication was able to treat. Since, I cannot find a doctor in my area, Columbus, OH, who is either accepting new patients or takes my health insurance. Also, my new former physiatrist, the replacement, decided to take me off my medication after I was attacked and assaulted in front of my home after arriving home for work. I was attacked while in my car and police are treating the case as an attempted abduction. I had a severe panic attack
in her office shortly after this incident and she just sat there and didn't say or do anything to help me at all. My family doctor is appalled and disgusted with her actions. His medical practice's policy requires patients see a phiciatrist for anxiety meds, antidepressants, etc. I need help getting my anxiety under control again...I need my medication.
