Question: Yes, I have anxiety and have been on anxiety medication since I was 17, I am now 26. My Primary DR's office closed without any notice. I have no refills on my alprazolam and I am wondering if you could assist me with that until January when my insurance kicks in. I have gone to the ER, I can not afford the urgent care. The health department does not perscribe anxiety medication. I have nowhere else to turn, as I am a single mother and currently out of work.

Brief Answer: Follows. Detailed Answer: Dear Madam, Thank you for reverting back . Well the medicines that are prescribed for anxiety have a potential for abuse so cannot be prescribed as such . There must be some provision in your system , you need to trace where your files are transferred because there is no other way out . Only a registered practitioner in your country can prescribe this to you . Take care. Dr. Shruti
