xanax purple
xanax 10 scored film coated oblong purple color ## First, I would like to state that there is no 10mg Xanax on the market, it is only available in a maximum of 2mgs of Alprazolam. That said, are there any markings on the tablets? It is the markings that enable us to identify them. I am also not finding any purple tablets, but there are several blue, oval tablets, some of the markings include: G 3721, 1mg GG 258, 1mg 2089 V, 1mg BP 632, 1mg 605, 1mg and ALP 1 APO. And this is not a comprehensive list, since it is available as a generic. Can you post back with the markings on the tablets in question? ## The only markings on this tablet are Xanax 1.0 - not 10. There is nothing else on it at all and it is coated with a film, whereas alprazolam is not and is blue, the supplier said it is a b...

find a doctor that easily prescribes Xanax and adderall
I am going back to school in two days and am in desperate need of something to help me focus. Because of this problem, I ended up dropping out of this school a few years ago. Also I have major anxiety. I worry about everything, no matter how minuscule, have trouble sleeping because my mind is always racing. When I get super upset, I hyperventilate and feel like I can't breathe. ## Your mind could be racing because of the Adderall. Drugs like Xanax do not help you "focus" and is not a true sleep aid. Your best bet would be to stay off both? ## Hi, Melissa! Sorry about the problems that you're having. However, without knowing your general location, it's difficult for anyone to try to make any recommendations for a doctor that may help. Can you please post back and give...

Imagine an L7 squished together to make a square/box (that doesn't close on 2sides) I was told they're xanax 1mg..but I can't find any info? Does anyone know? ## Don't take Pills that someone just give you! Levothyroxine Sodium 88mcg Tablet This medicine is a green, oblong, scored tablet imprinted with "M" and "L 7" and is manufactured by Mylan ## It doesn't have any M on it at all..its light green oblongish/football shaped like a xanax ...scored on 1side & the other side it has a square design where2sides don't meet. No other #s or letters ## Hello, Sarah! How are you? That is not any Xanax/Alprazolam that...

xanax withrawal from small dosage
My wife used generic Xanax for anxiety and trouble sleeping. She has only taken 14 pills of .5mg as needed to sleep over a period of 1-2 months. Occasionally she would double the dose (1mg). She started experiencing random severe head burning/tingling sensations, sudden fatigue, and similar severe symptoms in the last week. After reading about Xanax w/d she quit taking it cold turkey thinking that was the cause. That was 3 days ago. She still has the symptoms off and on. Could this be Xanax withdrawals or should I be rushing her to the ER for an MRI and CtScan for other possible health problems. And if Xanax is the cause how long should it continue on that prior inconsistent low dose usage. Any educated response are very much appreciated!

how to find a doctor west palm prescribe xanax
iv e been taking xanax for 22 years for my anixiey.and panic attacks ,now my doctor put me on klotopins,and they dont have the same effect,im not feeling too welll ## Hello, Cindy! How are you? What was your Xanax dose and what dose did they prescribe of the Klonopin? They are a 1 for 1 conversion, so the Klonopin should work, unless your doctor didn't prescribe enough. There is also a slight chance that it just doesn't work for you. Have you informed your doctor of the problem? These medications carry the risk of being habit forming and could cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache and irritability. ## I have 2 bottles of Klonopin and although I only took 4 pills, I felt they worked pretty much just like Xanax. The Doctor gave them to me because he said they wer...

A Round White Pill with a V or a check mark almost like a square root has a division in half but nothing on tje other side no numbers....
its white maybe a hint of yellow its tablet form can be cut in half and has a V or check mark on one sign almost like square root sign but nothing on the other....I was told it was 1mg xanax or alprazolam...anyone know? ## If there are no additional numbers to the imprint, then no, it is not a prescription medication of any type. The ones with just the V logo and nothing else are actually over the counter products. There is one that looks like this that contains 325mgs of Acetaminophen, it is a generic or store brand of Tylenol. Learn more Acetaminophen details here. I am not sure if that's what this one is, because the company does make several different over the counter products. It's just the one that I am personally familiar with. Where was it found? ## Actually that symbol ...

xanax morphine somas hydrocodone problems
I am perscribed morphine hydrocodone somas and xanex. My question is this. Has anyone ever had really wierd side effects off of this combo? I have hallucinated a couple times. I have accidentally over dosed because as my wife said i kept getting out of bed to take more but don't remember at all. If someone has had these issues please let me know if it's the medicine or something else please ## Hello, Bill! How are you? I am very sorry about the problems you've experienced. While it could be due to the combination, my first guess is actually to blame the Xanax, it has been known to cause these type of issues in some people that take it. The night that you kept getting up to take more, was it after taking an evening dose of the Xanax? This benzodiazepine carries the risk of be...

New Federal Xanax Laws?
I have done a lot of reading on the new United States 2013 Xanax laws. There aren't any? You can still obtain up to a 6 month supply of any schedule IV (4) medicine which includes Xanax. Some States have limited MD's to writing for a 30 day supply even forcing you to see a Specialist and putting you on a 'performance plan'. Please do not confuse local and State laws with Federal laws! ## I haven't come across any new laws pertaining to the use of Xanax in my research either. Were you led to believe that there would be any sort of changes this year? Erowid tends to have a pretty up to date list of this type of information on an international level if you're interested in having a look: I hope this helps! ## Yes tha...
