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

hello, I was cleaning and working up a real sweat. I bent down to pick up something and when I stood up, my heart felt like it was flopping around. I got freaked out and my anxiety started to really act up. I went to sit down and had a drink of water, trying to cool down, and it started up again for a few seconds. That freaked me out and I had a full out anxiety attack, and started shaking and hyperventilation. Now im freaked out and keep pacing around, im not sure if its going to happen again. With my last pregnancy, i was on metoprolal(spelling) cuz i had heart palpitations frequently and I didnt want it to be anything serious. I had a ultrasound done on my heart in sept 2009, and my cardiologist said my heart structure was nice and strong. I am going through a lot of stress between work and home, and i am currently on .25mg of alprozalom 2 times daily to help with anxiety. But today really freaked me out!
