Does anyone know a reputable website where I can purchase xanax online. I recently lost my health insurance and can't afford the expense of seeing my therapist or Dr. My insurance doesn't kick in for another month and I am almost out of meds. Sucky situation to be in.
I personally don't know of any on-line, reputable pharmacies, and would be EXTREMELY cautious about all of them. Perhaps there are folks here who CAN vouch for some, but all I can say is "caveat emptor!"
I think the smarter move would be to contact your PCP or therapist for a script to get you through until you can once again afford to see them. Your doctor especially should understand your need to NOT run out of Xanax, and if he/she doesn't, then that tells you they have no right to be prescriibing it to you in the first place!
If that avenue is a dead end, I strongly urge you to go to your local ER, explain the situation to them and they should give you enough medication to get you through until you can see your doctor or therapist again. Hopefully THEY will have a better understanding of what going cold turkey from Xanax will do to you.
I agree with greenlydia. The ER is a good option - bring along your dr. contact info and your current bottle of Xanax and explain your situation. Also, did you call your dr. and explain your situation? He/she can write you a script and just have you come pick it up without a "visit."
Buying Xanax online is very risky. It is a controlled substance, so the only site you can be sure are reputable are going to require a prescription and will speak with your dr. Getting Xanax from any other site is a bad idea.
Problem with getting Xanax online is that you never know what your getting.
Any place you find will be an off shore pharmacy. This means you xanax will be made in and shipped out of third world countries.
You can get them, but i wouldn't trust their product. That's all you need is to get a hold of some fake Xanax that is made with some mind altering psychidelic chemical.
That would not be a fun ride to go on if you already have anxiety dissorder.
You never know whats in that **** they ship from those countries.
It's so hard to find a doctor here in the states that will agree to prescribe more than 2Mgs a day. That's the max my doctor will allow me. It kind of pisses me off becuase while I know I am addicted to it, the alternative is constant anxiety. I wished he would allot me 4Mgs a day. They are afrade of law suites if a patient gets addicted so in their own self interest they limit how much they will perscribe.
I totally understand your frustration about keeping the xanax doses low. I was on 1.5mg a day, and my psychiatrist refused to just let me go up to 2mg a day - even when the anxiety was so bad that I thought I was going to have to check into a hospital. I just switched to klonopin 1.5mg a day (.5mg 3 times a day), and I can say that it had much more of a "covering" effect than the xanax. For me the xanax would last 4-5 hours tops. The knlonopin lasts me about 10-12 hours before I need another one. It takes a little longer to kick in than the xanax (30-45 mins compared to xanax's 10-15 mins), but I haven't had any of those breakthrough panic moments between doses (not yet anyway). Have you ever tried klonopin? If not, it might be worth a try. I'd rather be on 3mg of xanax a day - but I know that is not going to happen. But the klonopin has been giving me much better coverage at the same dosage as the xanax. Docs will also typically be more willing to up the klonopin than they would the xanax because klonopin is supposed to be less "addictive." Just thought I'd share my experience. I was so pissed that my shrink would not give me 1 extra xanax to take when I was freaking out for 2 weeks. I was basically told to deal with it. I'd like to know how many doctors would tell someone suffering from excruciating from a terminal illness to "wait it out" or "deal with it" or "go for a walk." No compassion.
Everyone is different, and need different levels of anti-anxiety drugs. I take 4 1 mg. Clonazepam a day and still have break through panic attacks. Also, the Lamictal makes my hands have tremors.
I wonder if doctors are just covering their a**es by not upping doses when it is needed.
My doctor told me BP is like diabetes, you need to be on the meds all your life, so if you are taking something addictive, what's the big deal? As long as you take it as the doctor says.. better than being miserable.
I have in the past tried to buy off the internet but times changed. The last time I got it it came from Malaysia or some odd place, they would cut out the pages of a travel brochure and then fill it with pills. Very cheap, but very dangerous. There is a board that discusses this issue. Can't remember the name, but I think it's drug buyers.com, and you will get info on how impossible it is to order this stuff online unless you get it from India. Who wants to give their credit card into to some strangers in India?
Stick with what your doctor orders - or change doctors if you feel you aren't being treated the way you feel you should be. Best of wished.
This post is so old, I don't know what it's doing here, but I just want to say to anyone reading this who may be thinking of buying meds online...........don't do it!
There ARE very reputable pharmacies where you can purchase meds online, but you need to send them a scrpt from your doctor and they check it out, believe me.
Any other online pharmacy should be viewed with great caution and meds you receive from these places should first be given to your pet rat for a week before taking it. Even if the rat lived, I don't advise taking it. It's probably made out of rat food.
Be safe. Go to your local pharmacy.
if only that ould ork. Doctors just don't seem to care anymore, it is such a shame. I kno what it's like to quit xanax cold turkey. Don't anyone ever do it. Their is a very good chance that you will die from the withdrawls. I almost did. And you don't have to have a so called script. to order your meds online, that's just silly. As long as it's in the US, and no more thwn a 3 month supply, you are ok, I order from a wonderful, honest pharmacy. Along with the doctors name, etc. Get your facts straight!
Jan, I'm glad you seem to be one of the lucky ones, that's great, but unfortunately there are countless others that are not so lucky! Many times, mail order meds will be made from strong anti-psychotic meds, like Haldol, to try to mimic the sedation effect of a benzo. This comes with dangerous consequences. This has been typically more true of overseas Pharms, but it has happened in the US as well. Don't get into a false sense of security thinking if the meds are coming from the US, they are "safe". NOT true.
Also, benzos are a controlled substance and are illegal to obtain online without a face to face visit with a licensed doctor who has a DEA number. You are taking risks not only with your health, but also legal ones as well.
I certainly understand that it is not always easy to find a doctor willing to Rx benzos, but with some time and patience, you can find one...and if you really have the need to be on one, you can do it the right way.
This forum could NEVER condone ordering meds online. It's a deadly game.
That would be a great idea, but you are forgetting one very important thing. If she has the money to go to the ER, then she could just go to her doctor! The ER is very expensive, and she might not even get any medication, they have to be so careful. The ER gets so many addicts everyday trying to get drugs.
I have/was taking xanax for years, Then I found a great caring doctor that put me on a non addictive anti anxiety medication. Thank God for him, you never need to be on xanax for a long time. Xanax is only for short term use. Your doctor, and my old doctor should have put us both on something that we need to take everyday. Shame on them! I was given enough xanax to taper off of it, so no withdrawls. Now I am xanax free, and never have to ever worry again about running out. A wonderful feeling. Please get off the xanax and take something that will help you. Let me know how your doing.And if your doctor won't help, I will give you the name, number of an honest pharmacy in the Usa. I know what you are going through, good luck
klonipin is also very addictive, it lasts longer in the system, so you don't have to take it as often as xanax, Nobody should ever take xanax, valium, etc. on a daily basis. It is very addictive. A good doctor would never prescribe those drugs to be taken on a daily basis. Their are many good medacations on the market for anxiety, that will help, so you won't ever have the need to take any benzos again. I know, I have been down that road.
Good luck to you
