So I've called my doctor's office and let them know I am having some really bad anxiety attacks, haven't been sleeping well, and have been feeling a bit down recently. The nurse said my doctor is on vaca this week, but she gave me a list of therapists to call and set up an appt.
So now I am not sure what to do. If I set up an appointment and visit a therapist, what are the odds they'll end up prescribing some type of benzo? I thought only Psychiatrists are able to give out prescriptions, so i don't think a therapist is a step in the right direction?
Just wait til your doc gets back...my doc gives me xanax for stress and to help me sleep...the only thing is, it is highly addictive, so they usually will only give you 6 months worth...if you really need it for the symptoms you described, don't abuse it and overuse it, or else when that 6 months is up, you will be screwed.
