invega is an antipsychotic for schizophrenia.  Do you have that?  And you really can't just up and quit these meds, especially Xanax -- they can have a wallop of a withdrawal.  You have to stop them slowly.  You say you have PTSD -- were you in the military?  I ask because most drug companies have programs to help people who can't afford medication, and veterans are better treated than others in this regard.

I meant to add, if it's true your Xanax was stolen and you have no record of drug abuse, your doctor should just give you a new script for the Xanax.  This can be a dangerous drug to just stop if you're taking it regularly, so they should be amenable to getting you some more quickly.
