Xanax Overview

Alprazolam, available under the trade name Xanax, is a potent, short-acting anxiolytic of the benzodiazepine class. It is commonly used for the treatment of anxiety disorders, especially of panic disorder, but also in the treatment of generalized anxiety disorder (GAD) or social anxiety disorder.[4][5] It was the 12th most prescribed medicine in the United States in 2010.[6] Alprazolam, like other benzodiazepines, binds to specific sites on the GABAA receptor. It possesses anxiolytic, sedativ...

how can i tell if my g3722 xanax bar is real or not
139 Replies RSS
My latest script for xanax has imprint g3722 and it seems to have no taste or effects. I've been taking them for a long time and to my surprise they seem to do nothing. Have you heard of this? It is a white xanax bar that seems to be a little thick. ## Hello, Jeff! How are you? I'm sorry about the problem that you're having. While there is a tablet manufactured by Greenstone Limited that has this marking, which they list as containing 2mgs of Alprazolam, there have been many recent reports like yours, which leads me to suspect that the ones you have may be fake, especially with the size difference. It seems everyone who has noticed their lack of efficacy has also commented that they seem to be thicker than the ones they've received from this company, before. The FDA list...

3 Replies RSS
I need help finding doctor in dallas willing to prescribe xanax or klonopin. These qre the only drugs that help my anxiety,insomnia & also depression. Instead doctors prescribe different antidepressents & buspar which does not work. I feel like a guinea pig w/ all these different drugs because the doctors ive seen dont want 2 prescribe benzos. its so frustrating because i know benzos work for me. Can someone help me find a doc in dallas willing to prescribe benzos? ## Hello, Damon! How are you? I'm sorry about the problem that you're having. It is normal for doctors to want to try other options first, before resorting to possibly habit forming medications. Thus, most are going to want you try the others and then proceed from there, if they don't work for you. Additio...

Xanax Yellow Bar ligth yellow
11 Replies RSS
I bought some bars there the r 0 3 9 their a ligth yellow and when u eat one or dissolve one in ur mouth it doesnt taste as bad so i didnt need any water to finish the whole thing i also dnt feel them kickin in at all. Are they bad old or fake? ## These are actually "real" tablets. The imprint R 0 3 9 has been identified as generic Alprazolam (2 mg), manufactured by Actavis. National Drug Code (NDC): 00228-2039 Generic medications are permitted by the FDA to contain up to 20% more or less of the actual active ingredients. This factor, along with different inactive ingredients (binders/fillers) could enable you to have a completely different reaction to each medication. In light of this, I'd probably consider talking to your doctor about writing a new script for a brand name ...

Refilling my valid Xanax prescription early
409 Replies RSS
I only see one doctor and he gives me a 3 month supply of xanax. When I went the last time he wrote me out a prescription but I still had two refills. I had a friend and her husband passed away and I gave her some of mine thinking I would have no problem re-filling the prescription. I had sense enough not to go to the same pharmacy and not to give my insurance information. So I go to this small drug store by my house and I had to fill out paperwork such as dob, name and my DL #. Well they paged me to the front of the store and advised me that it was 7 days to early for them to re-fill. So my question is where can I go to re-fill a prescription that is valid written by the same doctor. I only tried one place, I'm guessing they must have a data base if you try and refill your prescrip...

does a real gg249 xanax have coating
5 Replies RSS
i have some gg249 bars, white, blank on other side BUT these have a coating. are they real / ## Hi wonderer, Based on my research, GG 249 tablets are supposed to be legitimate 2mg Alprazolam tablets, manufactured by Sandoz. However there have been several reports about fake one's going around from those who choose to obtain their medication by non-licensed overseas distributors; at which point any pill is subject to being counterfeit, no matter what it might look like. I don't know about the "coating" details specifically, but I would recommend running a search on some images to get a better visual perspective so you can compare your tablet that way as well. When all is said and done though, it certainly sounds like it would be best to start getting your medications from...

what does xanax taste like?
11 Replies RSS
Is real xanax chalky and do they have a taste? ## does xanax taste chalky at all because I got some Bar that's a xanax on one side and a 2 on the other side and they look perfect but do not have that bitter taste that I am used to??? Does anyone have any advice on this? ## If it doesn't taste bitter there is no possibility it's real. If you can taste chalk or any other flavor it should be pretty clear you do not have genuine Alprazolam. ## Alprazolam or Xanax the name brand comes in different strengths, The 0.2 is usually white. The 0.5 is peach colored the 1 mg is blue with a line in middle and the 2 mg bars come in white, yellow, green and a long with scores in them. These are all from the pharmacy.

autistic wife with debilitating anxiety needs dr in sacramento ca that will prescribe xanax
4 Replies RSS
The anxiety my wife suffers from her autism keeps her from living a normal life. It is so hard to watch her suffer, every noise hurts her, she cant leave the house almost ever and is in bed to several weeks a month, in our bedroom with the door shut and the lights off. She also suffers from panick attacks as a result, I found her curled up under the counter the other night. She trys so hard every minute of every day to use the techniques she has learned and practiced through therepy and research. She has put thousands of hours into research on autism in addition to therepy. She has found cognative behavioral therepy to be the best so far, atleast her version of it. We moved from Alabama just over a year ago to the Sacramento CA area, it is very difficult to get her to go to the Dr. We h...
