xanax worked, and then took it again and nothing.
Three weeks ago I flew out to ABQ. Flying is my worst fear (plus I have general anxiety.) I went to my doctor and got prescribed alprazolam .5mg. (I have been on klonopin and they do nothing for me.) anyway, on the flight out I took 1.5 mg and it was the best flight I've ever had! So on the way back, just today, I took the same amount and it did nothing. was still having panic attacks and i felt like it just made me a little irritable. What'sa goin' on?! ## Hello, Kelly! How are you? I am very sorry that it didn't work for you the second time. Sometimes, medications are just like that and there's really no way to explain it. The irritability can be a normal side effect of this medication, as well as headache, dizziness and mood swings. This medication also carries th...

white xanax gg 249
how can u tell if gg249 are fake ## Based on the description and imprint, according to our U.S. prescription drug resources, this is a 2mgs Alprazolam tablet, the active ingredient in Xanax. I've not heard of any fake tablets being on the market with this marking. It is more common to get tablets that you are told are one thing and then find out you've been given something else. Where were they obtained? ## i have a perscription for them and i get them from an online pharmacy whos name should be widely known as a rip off, not only did they short me by two pills but they didnt even provide me with sleep aid or anxiety relief. ## Xanax (alprazolam) especially the 2mg bars have been bogus, fake and sold online for years. I even had a shipment of this come to a Walmart Pharmacy once...

Are these real? Please Help!
Received white 2mg xanax bars in mail the other day that have XANAX imprinted and scored 3 times on one side and a number 2 on other side but are only scored once across the 2. All of the pix I've seen so far show side with 2 on it having three scores. Can anybody tell me if these are real or not?? ## Where did you order them from? This information might help me find more information on them. They don't match the description of legitimate 2mg Xanax bars that are approved and for sale in the U.S. However, they are very similar to others that were posted recently, but no one has been able to ascertain whether or not they are fake. ## I just got 20 I held them next to my regular ones they are a bit smaller not scored as deep with a smaller 2 on back only scored once look very close...

Hello! Are these real G3722 Xanax real?
I was wondering if they were real because I don't know whether to get some GG249 Xanax since they are finely pressed or G3722 Xanax since they are finely pressed as well. What are your thoughts? Thank you! ## This is the picture of the G3722 Xanax! ## Hi Joe, I can't tell if it's just the lighting in your photograph or if the pill you have is grayish blue in color, but according to several drug descriptions, the legitimate version of this pill is supposed to be white. Everything else appears to look the same as far as the logo and numbers are concerned. Even the shape, score lines, and rounded-off edges look normal by comparison. Did you order this pill from overseas or something? ## G3722 is the only US made alprazolam apart from the unaffordable XAN...

I HAVE BEEN ADDICTED TO PAIN MEDS AND HAVE DONE GREAT ON SUBOXONE, UNTIL I HAVE MY PSYCHOTOIC EPISODES THEN NOTHING HELPS, AND CAN'T FIND ANY DR. IN KENTUCKY WHO WILL PRESCRIBE ANY KIND OF ANTIANXIETY MEDS WITH SUBOXONE. I FEEL SUICIDAL AND WOULD RATHER BE DEAD THAN LIVE LIKE THIS ## Hello, Sylena! How are you? I'm sorry about the problems that you're having. The main issue, I think, is the fact that Xanax can be habit forming and is very commonly abused. If you're already being treated for addiction, them most doctors are going to be very reluctant to prescribe it for you. It may also cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache, irritability and mood swings. Additionally, if you suffer from mental health issues, you'll need to see a specialist and most a...

xanax script
i have like 4 refills on my bars it's 2 weeks early if i pay cash can i get them filled without using my insurance ## wat country, australia will be a definate no from the chemist. ## the usa, Minnesota ## No, I'm sorry, but you won't be able to get it filled early, even if you pay cash. Xanax is a controlled substance, since it can be habit forming and is frequently abused, so such prescriptions are tracked via computer. This medication may also cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache and irritability. The only way you'd be able to get a refill early is if your doctor made some change to your dosing/dosing schedule and authorized it with the pharmacy. Is there anything else I can help with? ## I filled a 3 month supply at Rite Aide after 2 months to get ...

doctors that prescribe xanax in lincoln park michigan
I have recently moved from New Orleans and have been on 2mg alaprolazam for many years. I need to find a Dr that can write me my proper prescriptions. Please help ## Hello, Patrick! How are you? Due to the new regulations that were put in place last year, if you require such a medication on a long-term ongoing basis, you'll need to see a specialist. A regular PCP will not be able to prescribe it for you. The best thing to do would most likely be to set yourself up with a new PCP and have them refer you to someone. Can anyone suggest a good doctor in that area? This medication may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache, irritability and mood swings. It also carries the risk of being habit forming.
