There is no way by which doctors online can prescribe you.
I advise you to quit taking XANAX as it is habit forming and should be avoided
I advise you to resort to
Regular exercises and yoga
Deep breathing and relaxation exercises.
Taking the help of a psychiatrist
Avoiding alcohol,cigarettes and drugs.
Thanks and best of luck

Anxiety and panick attacks can not be cured with medication alone. You need to identify the root cause of the anxiety and get rid of it. Over and above it is dangerous to consume anxiety drugs for a long time. Take the help of any available psychotherapist in your vicinity or contact me.
