    I have been trying to get my doc to give me a script for xanax. I figured it would be easy due to my long histoy of anxiety/depretion. well finally i got the scrip but its xanax XR. I have been looking for a reson to tell him why i want normal xanax but cant find one. this is the only thing i can think to tell him:

    Your docmust think you have constant anxiety throughout the day. Is that howthe two of youestablished your anxiety disorder? Maybe explain to him that although you are very nervous throughout the day, it is much more severe at differing moments.


    Also let him know how much this drug is helping you, and then in a few months say that every once in a while the attacks are strong again.


    One more thing if he does prescribe you instant releases, praise him (for the right reasons) saying this drug is a Godsend as so he keeps you on the script

    I met with him a few hours ago and told him how much it was helping me. i also told him that the drug only worked for about 12-14 hours and then dropped me back down quickly. He seemed very happy with the improvment and says that he thinks we have found the correct combo of drugs. so i hope i can get the imedate relase. if not i dont mind a life time perscription to the XR's (thank you insurance!)

    Just be careful ... xanax addiction can be an extremely frightening experience (grand mal seizures and such). Enjoy, but read some more about it on this forum, many people seem to have the attitude that it is evil, and if you become addicted many problems can arise. (heh, not trying to be a downer ... pardon the pun, in this thread ... just thought id pass on some info ... read more in the forums and see for yourself :) ).
