Comprehending Anxiety Medication Prescriptions
Fred Joe asked a question on April 11, 2017, and it was last updated on April 10, 2017 by Bestpup.
“I’m confused, he prescribed Temazepam again even though it’s a Schedule 3 drug. I’m feeling anxious just trying to get my prescription refilled.”
The prescribing process for Class 2 and Class 3 scripts has changed. Even if your doctor can prescribe Xanax (depending on state regulations), they must provide a valid reason for doing so. During an in-office appointment, the doctor will conduct a thorough examination, including checking vital signs and asking relevant questions about anxiety to develop a comprehensive treatment plan. This may include medication and counseling to address anxiety symptoms.
I hope that the doctor will understand your need for Xanax based on the information you provide. It’s also possible that your symptoms may lead to a different diagnosis. While it may be more convenient to have the prescription called in, seeking medical attention at the doctor’s office is a better option if you want to address your anxiety. Additionally, establishing a good doctor-patient relationship is more likely if you visit the doctor in person. Best of luck to you in managing your anxiety.
