Alprazolam, available under the trade name Xanax, is a potent, short-acting anxiolytic of the benzodiazepine class. It is commonly used for the treatment of anxiety disorders, especially of panic disorder, but also in the treatment of generalized anxiety disorder (GAD) or social anxiety disorder.[4][5] It was the 12th most prescribed medicine in the United States in 2010.[6] Alprazolam, like other benzodiazepines, binds to specific sites on the GABAA receptor.

Fillers added to Mylan's generic xanax
3 Replies RSS
Mylan alprazolam .5 mg gives me a headache. I did not have this problem with another brand. What fillers are used? I.e. Sodium laurel sulfate or aspartame? It also does not seem as effective as another generic I had been taking. ## I have Mylan too, the 1 mg pills and have not noticed that, although I have a headache all the time? Drop them a line at: 800-796-9526 customer.service@mylan.com ## Headaches can be a normal side effect of this medication, according to FDA reports. You may also experience nausea, dizziness, and irritability. What are the markings on them? That information is what would enable me to double check the details for you. Can you please post back and clarify? ## The Mylan generic xanax is .5 mg. Pinkish scored pill with Mylan A3 on the front. I get headaches from th...

how strong are teva 833
10 Replies RSS
are 2 teva 833 pills equal to a xanax bar? ## Yes, perhaps stronger at least at first? I tried my first Klonopin last week and thought it was too strong compared to Xanax. I also thought the same thing about Ativan. Xanax is so mellow & deadly! ## The tablet with the TEVA 833 marking contains 1mgs of Clonazepam, it is a benzodiazepine that's most commonly used to treat anxiety and nervous disorders. This medication has the potential to be habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache and irritability. Learn more Clonazepam details here. And yes, the dose conversion is 1 to 1 from Alprazolam to Clonazepam. Is there anything else I can help with? ## Can 1mg teva833 hurt me if i took 65mg of methadone? ## Does a 833 teva the green ones that break in ...

Ok so I got a prescription filled for these white xanax bars & I've gotten them before but here's the problem.... This time when I got them the was a big two on the one side but nothing in the other side? When you put it in your mouth they don't immediately taste like it but when I started moving it around it did. The taste stayed in my mouth for awhile and made me sleepy, but usually I get more sleepy then I was? Idk someone help!!! ## Hello, Jackie! How are you? There is a 2mg Alprazolam bar manufactured by Bionpharma that matches this description, so yes, they are a generic brand of Xanax. They are coated, which is why you didn't taste anything for awhile. The FDA warns that this medication carries the risk of being habit forming and could cause side effects, such...

xanax bars causing illness
8 Replies RSS
I was prescribed Xanax 2mg bars again for extreme anxiety! I have withdrawan from xanax twice in a matter of 2 years. I can't take them anymore! They are making me sick. Can anyone tell me why? My Dr is giving me 2 one mg daily now and that isn't working either. Should I take clonopin again? It seems to work better! My symptoms from xanax are sores on my body that don't heal and extreme fatigue and headaches. I took a clonopin the other day, 1 one mg. and I had more energy, no headaches and my anxiety was controlled longer. Does anybody know why xanax is now making me sick? ## Hello, Sue! How are you? I'm sorry about the problems you're having. Our bodies change with time, as we age, so it may be that Xanax is just no longer the right medication to help you. I've...

Find A Doctor In My Area Indianapolis Xanax And Pain Pills

I need a good dr. that is persistent. 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 zi...

long white xanax pill g3722
10 Replies RSS
The g should b capitalized G3722. I've seen a few fake ones, made by those single pill presses that have all of the bars shaped xanax imprints and ive been screwed once or twice. Never seen colored green/yellow bars that weren't real tho or the football oval shaped ones. Hope i helped. ## Thanks for the heads up Head! No pun intended LOL. I just wanted to make a note to other readers about the idea of receiving fake xanax tablets in general - Patients who fill their prescription at a licensed pharmacy shouldn't ever have to worry about counterfeits such as the long white g3722 pill being described above. Please correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe the information presented here is primarily intended for those who go get their medication through other means... Having sa...

Refilling my valid Xanax prescription early
487 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...

how can i tell if my g3722 xanax bar is real or not
156 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...
