How to get prescribed Benzos

Benzodiazipines, or Benzos for short, are a group of anxiety relieving medications, prescribed for a range of indications including insomnia, panic, anxiety, agitation, alcohol withdrawal and seizures.

Benzo drugs include clonazepam (Klonopin), lorazepam (Ativan), alprazolam (Xanax) and diazepam (Valium). Other benzo-like drugs include the research chemical Etizolam and Metizolam. Although Etizolam is not strictly a benzo, and some consider it a research chemical, some doctors may prescribe it.

They are generally prescribed on a short term basis in order to avoid the risk of the individual becoming physically addicted to the drug.

There are some strategies that people commonly use to get prescribed benzos by their doctor.

Talk to your doctor

Try booking an appointment with your regular doctor. Tell them about the anxiety you are experiencing.

Make sure to describe your symptoms well

During your appointment your doctor will ask you a few questions in a friendly way about the symptoms you are experiencing. Although some people may find it hard to open up about their anxiety, it is important that you realise your doctor is a professional and they are concerned for your well being. Treat this as a safe place to open up.

Some people consider it useful to keep a journal, to record your experiences of anxiety. Keeping this will help remind you of what negative experiences you are going through and you can call on this during your consultation.

See a psychiatrist

It is likely that your regular doctor will recommend you to see a psychiatrist once they are satisfied that you are suffering from an anxiety disorder. Often, clinical psychiatrists are more qualified to prescribe medications like benzos. If your regular doctor does not mention seeing a psychiatrist ask about seeing one yourself, and you should get a list of recommended practitioners in your local area.

Describe the symptoms you are experiencing to your psychiatrist

Just like with your regular doctor, you will have to explain and describe the symptoms of anxiety you are experiencing. You should talk about the effect that anxiety is having on your life. Make sure you are comfortable with your psychiatrist. If they do not seem like a good fit for you, it is OK to look for a different doctor.

Symptoms of anxiety include:

  • Problems sleeping.
  • Feelings of fear, dread, uneasiness and panic.
  • Cold hands or sweaty hands or feet.
  • Heart palpitations.
  • Shortness of breath.
  • Inability to remain calm or stay still.
  • Nausea
  • Dizziness.
  • Muscle Tension.

Ask for a prescription

This must be approached with delicacy. You do not want the doctor to think you are simply seeing them to get access to certain medications, as doctors are aware that these drugs may be abused, and can cause health problems if they are used over a long period of time

One way to approach this might be to say for instance “I’ve heard recently that Xanax or drugs like this might help my anxiety. Do you think that could be an option?”

It is important not to lead with this suggestion, but to first talk about your symptoms first.
