/benz/ Benzodiazepine Discussion
Does anybody know how to go about finding a psychiatrist or nurse practitioner that will prescribe on the first appointment? What is the best way or the fastest way to find a sketchy or dirty doctor or whatever the fuck they are called. I'm in southwest Florida if that makes any difference. I heard this place was the pharmaceutical mecca.

hardly anybody will prescribe a benzo on the first visit, unless you have a real greasy excuse of a doctor. you'll likely have to go through a wringer of SSRIs and shit before they catch on that none of that garbage is helping you. everybody's all up in arms over the 'prescription pill epidemic' (oh no, not an epidemic!! won't somebody please think of the children??????) so no one wants to be "that doctor who gets people hooked on shit."i guess you could just go around finding different docs until you land someone willing you give you what you want, but they might figure out yr a "drug-seeker" and then you'll never get prescribed anything fun ever again.fwiw i got rx'd benzos after admitting myself to the mental hospital trying to quit xanax and alcohol. so maybe become an alcoholic first??? wait no, that's terrible advice. i have no idea what the solution is.

>>145146THIS.OP, unless you're 50+ years old, preferably married or female, and have documentation you've jumped through the hoops of SSRIs, beta blockers, atypical anxiolytics, and possibly gabapentinoids, benzos on the first visit just doesnt really happen anymore, especially in SWFL.The only thing that's decently easy to get down here is a Rx stimulant or modafinil if you're in university/post university job, or suboxone from private sub docs who charge out of pocket for everything.They cant even script 20 5mg vicodins anymore unless its non acute pain or post operative. I've also seen more and more doctors switch from xanax to ativan or gabapentin as their "last resort" for panic disorder or GAD. New Valium/Klonipin scripts seem to be unicorns for patients without epilepsy.
You just gotta be patient and shop around for doctors that take your insurance, because fuck paying out of pocket to these quacks. Don't be overly pushy about getting benzos. Any doctor worth their salt knows what drug seeking behaviors are. Honestly, all that shit is a fucking hassle. L2drknet
>>145181pretty spot on. I went to a psych for my GAD and didn’t outright ask for benzos though that’s what I was there for. Visit 1 I get lexapro. He says it can help with anxiety. I know I’m not going to take it but just act skeptical and say I’ll try it. Come back a month later and tell him I never took it because I don’t want to start on antidepressants especially after reading up on them. He says understandable and feels me out a little. Ask me if I want to try benzos. Ask him if he thinks that help and tell him I don’t want to get addicted. Writes me a small prescription for Ativan for a month. Come back and tell him it worked great. Bumps me up a bit and that was that. Going on three years with him now from .5mg/day to 3mg/day. He’s insanely chill though and I lucked out as he is the big doc there and he doesn’t take new patients anymore. I was always open with him though just not full disclosure because I would never have gotten benz then. On the first visit he asked if I had any problems with drugs in the passed. Told him I used to smoke. He looks at me like I just killed his mom and very seriously asks “smoke?...like crack, heroin or something?” I say no, weed and he burst into laughter and grills me a little. He’s never drug tested me.
