I am glad to see a negative 2 on them for that kind of statement.

Not even close to  an appropriate joke. ! ...or otherwise intelligent.

I can only comment on my experience with docs, but will first say NEVER tell the doc that you've been taking controlled meds from an online source, it's illegal regardless of the empathy you want to illicit.

The first doc I saw was a GP and in his 70's, about to retire actually. He asked me many questions and studied my body language and how I answered. In the end he sat next to me and put his hand on my shoulder and said, "son, life is a wonderful place, you just need to learn to take a step back and enjoy it." Fantastic man. I left his office with a script for 60 ativan with 1 refill but he told me if I wanted to continue receiving benzos would have to go to a psychiatrist.

Went to 2 different psychiatrists over the next year. Each started with SSRIs, I actually tried them and would wake up in the night crying for no reason. Stopped that crap immediately. Every subsequent visit they tried to put me on a different one and after asking them for a benzo to complement the SSRI, was given a suspicious look but they gave me a low 15 ct 0.5mg dose of EXPENSIVE Niravam (subligual alprazolam) with no refills and both charged $250 cash even with insurance.

Never understood the reluctance of doctors to prescribe a Schedule IV medicine, when I was able to go to pain clinics when I had my back accident and was doled out 90 10/325 norcos every month without the doc batting an eyelash...and this was after they were placed into Schedule II.

Just a question from the curious, can someone explain the so-called 'blacklist' referenced?

...my situation is that my primary doctor refused to continue xanax when he found out from my state's prescription database that I had seen another doctor for subs. No doctor shopping, just that my primary doctor doesn't offer that service. Actually had not been taking the subs the last time I saw him (3 months prior), but he wouldn't listen at that point--I could see his eyes glaze over with fury as he decided to 'punish' me, even knowing I had been taking xanax for 10 years and I had never tried to refill early or see another doc for it (in fact most of the time I would refill his scripts later than the 30 days). I'm still trying to get over the heartlessness of this doctor.

Also, does anyone know if the prescription drug database is shared between states?...thinking of moving after graduation and wondering if my foray into sub treatment in this state will haunt me in another. I also worry now that I used a large chain store to fill these scripts it will follow me forever.

I read back and saw the referenced "blacklist." Wish I had an answer for u, but I don't. My state went nutz. Even my medical doctor sister has trouble receiving her meds.

Hopefully someone will have answers for u.

You just have to keep an ear to the ground, people like us tend to stick together and will namedrop a compassionate doc if they trust you.

Once you get a foot in the office, it helps if you have been rx'd what you are looking for at some time in the past. In my area the won't bother to check your past records but you have credibility mentioning a doc they may know (they oftten DO know each other from conventions and stuff).

Also don't sound too knowledgeable- like when I was seeking vicodin many years ago I said "i forgot what he gave me, hydro something?"

But some Drs, rarer than rare, you can just name what you have had, what you are looking for, and they will help you out.

Old psychiatrists are the best because they were in their prime when benzos and amphetamines were given like aspirin. Young guys are scared s#!tle$$ to give anything controlled. SSRIs and Vistral (although vistral is effective, but obviously not on a level with schedmeds) are all they will give. But they don't wanna hear that SSRIs are only like .02% more effective than placebo, and were only pushed thru the patent process by big pharma lobbying.

while its good idea from OP to come clean with MD,but im not from states and bad at law,but would read up on state laws,since bringing meds from online could end up in bad trouble,if state is really tight about it,also while i understand struggle and dependence its really pushing luck when going trough multiple MDs with same story.

Now you wrote you were lucky enough to find passionate MD who will listen and care,why keep going to others ,instead get needed amount and actually tackling issue with reducing intake.Ive never had courage to visit any or disclose how bad i suffer to anyone,since seems you are given support but chance your luck instead facing the issue,lots benzos is great,but having someone who understand you and can help is one chance thats worth holding onto when it comes across.
No judgement just advice.

I agree with cmdline. Too much Dr. shopping, or too many prescriptions in different Doctors names will get you red flagged either by the doctors or the pharmacists as a drug seeker, and then you are SOL. Just saying...

Is there a reference on the open internet listing the states that have such database tracking of scripts and person prescribed benzos?
Being kind to others costs nothing and enriches your life, 
never forget how you felt when someone was once cruel to you,
we all have felt unloved at one time or another we should never want another to feel that way. Smile
