Your doctor is probably afraid of prescribing you a "benzo" and your body becoming reliant on it, especially if you are young. So many people abuse them now a days, doctors have to be very careful on who they can trust with a controlled medication.
Hydroxyzine is actually great for anxiety. Are you on hydroxyzine hcl or hydroxyzine pamoate? The one with pamoate in it is more for anxiety, while the other can be used for allergies and slight anxiety. If you aren't on the pamoate, I suggest asking her if you can try that. When that doesn't work (assuming it doesn't), tell her you had a doctor give you clonazepam (Klonopin). Tell her the exact dose, and tell her you only took it when needed, not on a consistent schedule. You do NOT want to be addicted to this stuff. It really is an as needed drug. Mention that you don't want addiction, but you do want help when things are really hard. Hope this helps.
