Alprazolam (ALMEE-1) India
Ordered generic Xanax (Alprazolam, 1 MG tabs) and got them today. They are blister packed from India and are GREEN with no inscriptions on either side of the pill. Anyone familiar with these and are they common or do they seem to be safe? ## This is an issue that has come up a lot recently, I advise you to be very careful. Some of these companies from India are sending the same pills to everyone as whatever they are ordering. There is no way to know for sure what they are, since they have no marking and are not from the U.S. I sure hope you aren't out a lot of money for them, or perhaps you can get a refund? ## the blister pack itself, as opposed to the pill designates the medication as alprazolam and the manufacturer. the manufacturer has been doing business in india since 1990. i ...

fake gg249
they just seem chalky taste and they don't work like 2mg xanax do I take one and can one and fall asleep on these i can take as many as i want and feel NOTHING Also is it legal or ilegal to order xanax off the internet? if so do you know a ligiet site that you can give me that will give me a pescription with a drs name on the bottle? ## I have taken xanax for years. I am positive that the pill you are talking about is another generic of a 2mg xanax, xanax is chalky anyways, even the brand is. I do know from experience that different companies that make xanax use different fillers, and the fillers can cause you to feel that the pill is not working the same, especially a pill that you are acustom to taking. For example. I used to take Norco 10 for pain, they make yellow ones and white...

ONAX 2 - is it legit?????
Anyone ever heard of ONAX 2mg. and is it a legit generic for Xanax. (Alprazalom) ## They are made by Ocean Manufacturing from Pakistan and are listed as containing 2mgs of Alprazolam, however, since they are not approved for sale and use in the U.S., they are not governed by the same regulations as our prescription medications. That means they may or may not contain Alprazolam and they may or may not use safe manufacturing practices, we really have no way of knowing. If they contain it, you may experience side effects, such as: nausea, drowsiness, headache and irritability. Learn more: Are there any questions or comments? ## I have these pills (ONAX 2). I have taken xanax for 2 years, and can't sleep without the medication. I believe these are real because they have relieved me of a...

2089 v NOT AS EFFECTIVE!!!
I've been on xanax for over two years and have had multiple different drug makers for the generic form of this pill. The maker of this particular pill, Qualitest, is the absollute worst. I've had to take three times the amount of pills to feel the same way I do on any other manufactureres pill. It's so bad that we took the bottle back to the pharmacy and told them they can just throw them out becaue it's garbage. Please don't accept xanax from the maker Qualitest. I promise you will be dissapointed!! ## This tablet is supposed to contain 1mg of Alprazolam, the active ingredient in Xanax. The reason I say supposedly is that I have read several complaints recently on different Vintage/Qualitest products and their not being effective. I am not sure what's going, hav...

how many anax will it take to kill you
My girlfriend died from choking on her throw up from anax im trying to find out how much do you have to take for some one died ## Hello, Burlington! How are you doing? I am so very sorry for your loss. But such a death would not be directly attributed to the amount of Xanax she took, but rather just to the fact that she likely took too much, passed out and then got sick, so she choked. Thus, there is no answer that I can really give you on how much would have been required, because it can vary from person to person. She could have taken 3 or 4, or as many as 20 to 30. Did the coroner do an autopsy? If so, were there any toxicology reports?
