I think its more important that you use your doctor to deal with your depression and anxiety disorder. If you are looking to be happy in life you should deal with your problems rather than use drugs
to temporarily avoid them. Life will get much better once you get over your depression and anxiety problems and it will be even more enjoyable to use drugs for fun rather than an escape.
His chances of giving you any benzodiazepine
(including Xanax) are very slim, unless he is a really crappy doctor. Xanax is only approved for 30 days of use in the US (although I think it is only voluntarily guidelines for doctors). Most benzodiazepines are used only temporarily. If you tell him that you have panic attacks, maybe he will give you something like Xanax or Klonopin
(which in my opinion is better).
He will probably want to keep you on BuSpar for 6 weeks before making a decision to keep you on it or try another drug
. BuSpar takes awhile to start working.
I don't see why people go to all this work to get Xanax. You can buy it on the streetsfor like XXX per bar (2mg) and avoid having to deal with doctors and all that copay.
