    Ok, back in the day I was prescribed Paxil for an anxiety
    disorder. I took his medication for a while then stopped seing
    his therapist...



    Now years later, I have become very interested in Benzo's...



    If SWIM when back to a therapist/psychiatrist with tales of new
    developed anxiety, night sweats, panic attacks and fear of starting
    college again, with are the chances that SWIM can get something
    good? I would tell the doctor Paxil did not work, and
    something stronger is required...



    Xanax or lorazepam or something else good possible?

    I forgot to mention. I have never been arrested for anything, been in rehab for drug use, failed a drug test or anything...



    Everything said would be 100% honest truth. However SWIM decides to take his medication would be another story...

    They'll give you something like Effexor first. They won't give a
    benzodiazepine to a person that needs to concentrate on anything - e.g.
    a person going to school. Then again, some of the older docs
    maygive you a BZD out of habit.

    Hmm, well what if I took that and looked up it's side effects and
    told the doctor that it didn't do a damn thing other than give SWIM
    [side effect].

    I guess you're right that it isn't formally used for anxiety. But
    off-label it's also used ADHD, smoking cessation, neuraligia, and a
    motley assortment of other crap. It's a drug for which its
    pharmacology is unknown. I wouldn't be surprised if it had an off
    label indication for anxiety, to be honest.

    Old records? what do you mean by records? My doc just gives me a
    script, I take it to pharm, they fill it and keep the script.
    I've never been handed a piece of paper that I keep. Do you mean
    contact my psychiatrist and ask them for some sort of document? im
    confused?

    ur medical records... its kind of a federal thing that says all the kind of medical treatment you have been through.
