I hope someone on here can help with my dilemma.
I have just recently returned to the England after being away for nearly 11 years.
I am 45 years old and since I can remember I've struggled with extreme anxiety and while I was out of the country a doctor prescribed me xanax, it's the only thing that ever helped with my anxiety but ive been told my gp he will not be prescribing me this in England.
Can I get this on a private prescription in the UK.
If its promptly stopped this medication can be very dangerous. I badly stuck don't know what to do

Your GP, if you discuss the issue with them, they will be able to help you stop taking them safely so may prescribe some tablets for this purpose.

Private prescriptions are just as restricted as NHS. Doctors are all under the same regulations.

People do buy them online but they are very expensive and also it is very dangerous to do as you don't know what is in the tablet or where it has come from.

The GP will help you so they are really the only place you can go for this problem.

I am sure there are other tablets that will help you and that are safer. There are other people in the UK with extreme anxiety who use alternative medications from their GP.
