As posted on another part of this site, I was recently the victim of a crime. Due to shock from the situation I've found it nearly impossible to cope. I think anti-anxiety meds would help at least in the short run.

I left multiple emails and 2 phone calls for my psychiatrist asking for temporary benzodiazepine medication.

He believes I should use "psychotherapy coping mechanisms". I think surviving a crime is beyond anyone's coping mechanisms.

If I go into a walk in clinic "urgent care" will they temporarily prescribe me anxiety meds or is this not in their area of expertise? I don't want to go to a hospital - I don't need to be admitted to one.

Thank you for your help during this difficult time!
