Xanax Overview

Alprazolam, available under the trade name Xanax 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 the USA in 2010.[6] Alprazolam, like other benzodiazepines, binds to specific sites on the GABAA receptor.

Refilling my valid Xanax prescription early
364 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...

xanax bars withdrawal
11 Replies RSS
I just had a bad withdrawal from green 2mg bars. I have taken anti-anxiiety meds for years, mainly xanax. I will not take them again! My w/d consisted of migraines, hallucinations, tremors,, catatonic states of mind, extended stomach and just not wanting to live. My Dr. put me on 2x 1mg. pills per day now and I am feeling a little better after 1 week. I can't shake the migraines and I am now wondering what is wrong? I only took the bars for 2 weeks! Can someone tell me what went wrong? ## You were suffering from the early stages of Alprazolam withdrawal. Your Body was in effect shutting down. I spent a week in the E.R./Hospital 6 years ago over this and came close to losing the battle ## I'm sorry about what happened to you, Sue. However, Eddy is most likely correct, though neit...

talking about the ig 213
2 Replies RSS
No way should this pill be labeled as xanax. My mom was put on these ig 213 and has taken xanax for years. Trust me when i say she was not the same person on this drug. The fda and dea and any body else should not label the ig 213 as a form of xanax. Not saying the ig 213 wont work for some people, but those who've taken valium and xanax sure know what im talking about. ## Yes Robert you have a problem as Pill imprint I G 213 has been identified as Sertraline hydrochloride 50 mg. This is NOT Xanax ## Eddy is correct! Sertraline is an SSRI antidepressant, that can also be used to treat anxiety, but it does not work like Xanax. I still have an old bottle of these around the house, somewhere, from when I started dealing with perimenopausal anxiety and tried it, to see if it would help....

3 mg xanax daily vs ativan 2 mg daily combining benzoate
1 Reply RSS
I have been on benzoate for 15 years and the 3 mg xanax er was working great until the generic was changed on me by the pharmacy. I have been asked to try 1 mg ativan twice daily and my anxiety and panic kicks in that if I say these work and then they don't I won't be able to function. Are these the same and if not how do I get my dr to keep me on the best meds for me and my chemistry. Is there a way to find a generic specific, where the fillers do not affect the half life of my meds? Also I never sleep and I know this just adds to the anxiety then the panic. Any advice? When I take the ER it works as long as I have a .5 to take as needed. Which seems to be in the evening. How do I explain to my dr that the combination works, without it being a concern that I'm just trying t...

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.

what does a white xanax bar look like
2 Replies RSS
I have a bar and I was told it was a xanax bar it says ze/38 on one side and 555 on the other side. What is this? ## That is Buspar, often given with or without Xanax. It is not in the same class of medication ## Hello, Marlo! How are you? Eddy is correct, thank you, Eddy! To add some specifics this is a 15mg generic for Buspar, it is used to treat anxiety. The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, dry mouth, and weight changes. Is there anything else I can help with?

White Xanax Bar G3722
139 Replies RSS
The two G's are different. 1 is more angular and 1 is rounded. just FYI ## The more rounded ones are real. ## @Casey, To confirm, the pill you have is in fact Xanax (Alprazolam) 2 mg. Xanax (Alprazolam) is primarily used to treat moderate to severe anxiety disorders (e.g., social anxiety disorder) and panic attacks, and is used as an adjunctive treatment for anxiety associated with moderate depression. Manufacturer: Greenstone Limited National Drug Code (NDC): 59762-3722 The difference in the look of the G's could just mean that they are from two different manufacturers. Learn More: Alprazolam Details If you have any more questions or concerns, please post back and I will be happy to help you. ## I have recently got some white Xanax 2 mg with G3722 on them. when I took one I fel...

wat is in the green s903 xanax
4 Replies RSS
i hav had people tell me the green s90 3 bars hav caffieen in em do they ## What is in green footballs 902s? ## Xanax does not contain Caffeine ## Eddy is correct! That is a dangerous combination, since one is an upper and the other essentially a downer, so the FDA would never approve it. The S903 tablet just contains 2mgs of Alprazolam, the active ingredient in Xanax, which is a benzodiazepine that's most commonly used to treat anxiety and nervous disorders. The tablet with the S902 marking contains 1mg of Alprazolam. This medication has the potential to be habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache and irritability. Learn more Alprazolam details here. Are there any other questions or concerns? ## I'm scared to get the green bars again. I dcho...

Find A Doctor In My Area Indianapolis Xanax And Pain Pills

I need a agood dr. that is persistant. One that will help me control my pain, and help control my very high anxiety... Please Help!!!!!! ## Hi Mike, Personally, I think if you suffer from any sort of anxiety/depression and need a Benzodiazepine class medication (like Xanax), usually your best bet is to see a psychiatrist, rather than a regular medical doctor. Reason being, is that they are better trained in the types of medications that handle these problems and can also help you treat the underlying cause of your anxiety or depression, as opposed to covering up the feelings and emotions with medication. In regards to finding a local pain doctor, I have listed below a couple websites specific to locating pain management doctors in a given area. All you have to do is input your city or z...
