Xanax Overview

Alprazolam /ælpræzlæm/ or /ælprezlæm/, available under the trade name Xanax /zænæks/ among others, is a short-acting anxiolytic of the benzodiazepine class. It is commonly used for the treatment of panic disorder, and anxiety disorders, such as generalized anxiety disorder (GAD) or social anxiety disorder (SAD).[4][5] It was the 12th most prescribed medicine in 2010.[6] Alprazolam, like other benzodiazepines, binds to specific sites on the GABAA receptor.

Is there a 5 mg Xanax or Klonopin?
6 Replies RSS
I need to know if there's a such thing as a 5 milligram klonopin or 5 milligram xanax pill. This kid is swearing up and down that they exist and I want to make sure this is legit because I can't find anything about a 5 milligram klonopin or xanax on the internet which is kind of weird. ## Not in the United States? ## Anyone telling you that they can get there hands on a 5 mg Xanax is full of crap. As the other person who responded who is correct. Not legally in the USA. Plus that a large amount to take at once. It's not a med to mess around with. I know first hand due to a doc who prescribed this amount to me for months. The detox was hell so be very careful to anyone who takes high dosages. U can not stop abruptly or you can suffer emotionally and physically. Please don...

Need help finding a doctor to prescribe Xanax in Wa
10 Replies RSS
Good regular patient needs loving home. Have been on 3mgs qhs of Alprazolam for nearly 20 years. Consistently stable with recent improvements (panic/anixety/depression). Clinic became anti-benzo and wouldn't help find another provider. In serious withdrawal for days now w/SI. No history of EoTH or anything else. Just need to get back to living. Not opposed to tapering once re-stabilized. Not opposed to a yearly UDT. Please help! My skin feels like it's on fire. :( ## Hi, Tess! I'm very sorry about the problem you're having. Most clinics in WA have stopped prescribing benzodiazepines and narcotics, because they are very risky and it is very hard for the doctors at a busy clinic to monitor the patients. However, it is odd that they wouldn't refer you to someone else, a...

how to spot fake yellow xanax
20 Replies RSS
these pills are small round yellow pills scored once and have no other markings. what are they? ## I got yellow bars 2 mil alprazolam They were off yellow alot thicker and square. I think there fake. Has anybody heard of the company's putting in more filler by accident ? So maybe it could be real just s bad batch? Plese help ## What area are u in? Around northern Indiana a lot of bars similar to your description have been going around. They have the same imprints as generic alprazolam 2mg yellow bars but the ones I've been seeing are thicker, chalky and off colored. Been looking for ways to test them myself ## Any luck finding out? ## Gg249s are real. I have taken many, they work every time.

Xanax Yellow Bar ligth yellow
9 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 ...

xanax vs. Mylan
152 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...

I look like I have small womens breasts and very large thighs above where the compression stockings stop at the thighs. I cant get any help that is actually working. have been sent to a heart and ...

doctors willing to prescribe xanax in new jersey
133 Replies RSS
I suffer from severe panic attacks on a daily basis. im a perfect example of a person that needs medicine and is unable to get it because of so many people abusing prescription drugs. I have such severe anxiety and panic attacks and cant find a doctor to prescribe me xanax because im only 25 and its so addicting. but what they dont understand that i should be on xanax for the rest of my life because my anxiety is so bad. So if any1 knows a doctor in the monmouth county area of new jersey that will prescribe me xanax please let me know...thank u ## Actually, part of your problem is that you are so convinced that you need that specific medication and are already insisting you will need it for life. This will automatically make doctors wary of prescribing it, because, even though you may n...

white xanax bar g3722 is it xr
8 Replies RSS
Xanax 2mg white g3722. What is the difference between xanax 2mg extended release than my normal yellow xanax. Its like i barely feel any relief from the anxiety/paranoia??? ## Coloring and possibly the manufacturer. I have many of the G3722 Alprazolam pills and they are fine, unless they are fake? Where did they come from? ## And no, the tablets with the G 3722 marking are not time released, they are regular release tablets. This medication is a benzodiazepine that carries the risk of being habit forming and could cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache and irritability. What were the markings on the yellow ones? I can't answer the rest of your question without this additional information. ## The yellow ones were from walgreens.and had the fancy R039 i had no doudts ...

how can i tell if my g3722 xanax bar is real or not
85 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...
