Patient:
My problem is this: my body is changing as I grow older feels at times as though it cannot quite keep up with my life stressors. My nerves become jittery, unrestful, and I would like to try something like Klonopin to see if it might ease that occurrence.

I have had Klonopin before as a student (1999), but I didn't give it much chance/use. I'd like to try it again.

If you are amicable to such a trial, please advise.

Dr:
As far as Klonopin is concerned, .... Furthermore, it is a controlled substance that by VA policy, it is no longer available. You may choose to see a civilian physician that can prescribe it to you.

Patient:
Seriously, the VA doesn't give anybody control substances ... or just Klonopin? I bet I can find a bunch of Vets getting Klonopin or some, or many, other Benzodiazepines.

Dr:
Yes, you will find thousands of vets on controlled substances, Klonopin just being one of them. They are all being weaned off as directed by the Federal government. The FDA to be exact.

Your frustration and anger or understandable.

Patient:
What law/reg/policy forbids you prescribing Klonopin? Specifically, I mean, so I can look it up and read it myself.

Dr:
PDR.

What page?

Patient:
At our first appointment you said "I'm just the pill pusher."

What drugs will you prescribe for me for nearly overwhelming anxiety and it's related issues, like sleep, and phobias?

How about Valium or Xanax, would you prescribe those or are those also forbidden by PDR?

Dr:
don't know.

Dr:
Please schedule an appointment like all we vets have to do it.
You're now harassing me with your disrespectful and endless secure messages. I would appreciate you find something more productive to do with your time. You have been reported to the proper authorities with the Disciplinary Committee here at the VA. There will be consequences. Please, enough.
