Today I met with a new psych, my first appt with him. Ill sum it above then elaborate. I walked out with 3 RXs, one for 3 2mg Klonopin daily, 4 refills, 1mg Xanax, 40 tabs 2 refill and 20mg Paxil 1 refill. I met with the guy for about 15 minutes and was out the door. He asked if I tried Prozac and said I had and it made me feel like @sambobs balls after a mexican meatball taco ala chode w/ extra mayo. He also asked if I went to college, which I did, 4 yr in comp sci, and I was dressed in an expensive suit, tie, shiny black shoes and all. I looked like I could either be a 1. Lawyer or 2. Hired hitman or 3. Guy in opening scene of a porno. I think these 3 things are KEY in getting perscribed benzo medication. 1. Your look 2. Your education and 3. Your previous reaction to a SSRI. If you go in looking like a bum, no education and never tried prozac, your chances of getting a benzo script are little to none. My psych actually said I was the best looked patient he's ever had when I was leaving. It also helped I picked a psych that had 8 violation/sanctions against him by the state so that told me he used to be an addict and is prolly cool with it and more apt to be liberal with addictive meds. So to sum it up. Look the part - Act Smart (if it doesn't come natural) and be confident - eye contact etc. Also when asked for symtoms - clamy hands, nausea, throw up, feeling of drowning, can't breathe, racing thoughts, pounding chest, feeling of being trapped w/ no escape etc. I hope this info helps those of you who have a hard time getting the anxiety meds they need. This post is inteded as a general guide on how to potentially get the meds you need without trying every single SSRI out there (and there are a lot) Look the part. Play the part. You'll get treated like the part.
