s 501 yellow pill

I think u r mistaking the 5 when really it is a 9 instead. If that's the case then it is xanax .5 mg ## @Silas, I'm not sure who you're message is being directed at when you mention that "I think you're mistaking the 9 for a 5", but the imprint S 901 is actually referring to Alprazolam 0.5mg (the generic for Xanax - not brand name Xanax). I only bring this up because there are many instances where patients note a completely different reaction to a brand vs a generic alternative. For added verification, the manufacturer is reported to be Dava Pharma and the pill itself carries a National Drug Code of 67253-0901. I hope this helps and thank you Silas for taking the time share this pill ID none the less! It's easy to mistake some of these imprints when images we...

Xanax/alprazolam scored White with only "11" imprint
155 Replies RSS
I went to go pickup my generic xanax script at a new pharmacy, they charged only 20$ for 90 2mg, so I could not say no to that, the next day I picked it up and the pill was bar shaped with round edges, scorerd to break into .5mg doses like all, excluding dava, are the only imprint is the number 11. It certainly taste like xaxa, as I have used a number of generics, but can not identify this odd, round edge alprazolam pill. Please help ## I'm sorry, but I can't find a listing for this in any of the U.S. prescription drug resources, either. Was this from a U.S. pharmacy? There is always the possibility that it is just very new to the market and isn't listed in the databases, yet. ## Yes it is xanax. It depends on your pharmacy. My uncle had them. I asked him the same ? You have...

3mg xanax yellow triangle
3 Replies RSS
There yellow triangle xanax 3 one side x on other from UK are they real ## I'm not even sure they are legal in the U,K, as you have to get a private prescription for regular Xanax. What is a private prescription? ## Yes they are real. They came back positive for benzodiazepine on a diagnostic. I also tried them and they work. I don't know if they're actually 3mg but they work. ## Since last reply I found there is very very little benzo in these I think there mostly sedatives or tranquilizers they suck

refilling my valid Xanax prescription early
185 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 pharmecy 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...

xanax dosage
2 Replies RSS
Can i take a 2 mg bar and half or whole at the same time? i feel nothing from the 2 mg bar! ## What are you expecting to feel from it? The FDA classifies this medication as a benzodiazepine, so it carries the risk of being habit forming and could cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache and irritability. But, it really doesn't cause a high or anything in most people that take it. It should have an effect similar to sedation. And no, in the regular release, 2mg is the maximum dose recommended, at once. However, if it isn't working for you, at all, you should speak to your doctor, because there is a 3mg time released one that you can try. Is there anything else I can help with? ## Yeah but you probably wouldn't feel the 3 mg XR either. Hey Verwon you never answe...

I have been suffering crowd anxiety and it's ruining my life my old doctor houser haloed me a whole lot . I can't stand being around stranger they give me anxiety anxiety large crowds scareme ## Hello, Smitty! How are you? If you require such a medication on a long-term ongoing basis, you'll need to see a pain management specialist. A regular PCP won't be able to prescribe it for you, due to the new regulations that were put in place last year. Have you ever consulted a psychiatrist regarding your issue? ## Ummm a psychiatrist will write you a legit rx easy peasy. Dr Sprabery off Kirby and Norfolk and you better have insurance or this doc is like 300-350 for the first visit and 90 after that. He always writes the script with 3 refills and at one point I was getting 90 2 ...

xanax withrawal from small dosage
7 Replies RSS
My wife used generic Xanax for anxiety and trouble sleeping. She has only taken 14 pills of .5mg as needed to sleep over a period of 1-2 months. Occasionally she would double the dose (1mg). She started experiencing random severe head burning/tingling sensations, sudden fatigue, and similar severe symptoms in the last week. After reading about Xanax w/d she quit taking it cold turkey thinking that was the cause. That was 3 days ago. She still has the symptoms off and on. Could this be Xanax withdrawals or should I be rushing her to the ER for an MRI and CtScan for other possible health problems. And if Xanax is the cause how long should it continue on that prior inconsistent low dose usage. Any educated response are very much appreciated! ## Hello, Matt! How is your wife doing? I'd ...

xanax vs. Mylan
117 Replies RSS
whats the difference between the 2?? ## Hi Britney, Mylan is a pharmaceutical company that manufactures a lot of generics. So if a medicine says Mylan on it, that simply means that they are the manufacturer, and it is not the name of the med. Usually it would say Mylan and then also have some numbers on it. Does your pill have numbers on it as well? If so please post exactly what your pill says + the shape and color... and then somebody can run a positive ID on it for you. Take care! ## round tablet. MYLAN A4 ## MYLAN 1610, small teal capsul, what is is for and what are the side effects. is it generic XANAX? ## katlin, mentioned a round tablet with the letters a4. i was wondering if thats xanax as well. the pill is white. any info would be greatly appreciated. ## Mylan A4 is 2mg Alprazo...
