Does Cerebral prescribe Xanax for anxiety?

Answered by John Hunt

Cerebral does not prescribe Xanax for anxiety. Xanax, also known as alprazolam, is a controlled substance and cannot be prescribed through Cerebral at this time. Cerebral’s prescribers are not able to prescribe controlled substances like Xanax or Klonopin (Clonazepam).

However, Cerebral’s prescribers can still help treat panic disorder and anxiety with non-controlled substances. They may prescribe medications such as Prozac (fluoxetine), Zoloft (sertraline), or Effexor (venlafaxine), which are commonly used to manage anxiety disorders.

It’s important to note that the decision to prescribe medication is made on a case-by-case basis, and the specific medication prescribed may vary depending on individual circumstances and the prescriber’s professional judgment. The prescribers at Cerebral will work with you to determine the most appropriate treatment plan for your anxiety or panic disorder.

While I understand that some individuals may have preferences for specific medications, it’s important to trust the expertise of Cerebral’s prescribers and be open to exploring alternative options that can effectively manage your anxiety symptoms. Each person’s response to medication can vary, and what works for one individual may not work for another.

If you have any concerns or questions about the medications prescribed, it’s always best to communicate openly with your prescriber. They can address any concerns you may have and work with you to find the most suitable treatment plan for your specific needs.

While Xanax and Klonopin are not offered through Cerebral, there are still effective non-controlled substances that can be prescribed to manage anxiety and panic disorder. Trust in the expertise of Cerebral’s prescribers and work collaboratively with them to find the most appropriate treatment plan for your individual situation.
