Are The White Gg249 Xanax A Good Brand? (Top voted first)

bean Says:

I got chalky tasting xanax with imprint gg249 on one side. And smooth on the back, I haven't taken one until I figure out if they're fake or not. Anyone else bought these or been prescribed these?? Do they work, are they real??

This is going to be extremely detailed, extremely incriminating and extremely informative, good thing I'm writing this from an untraceable source...

First, there are currently 47 different manufactured varieties of alprazolam. For the sake of clarification, let us go ahead and lump "Xanax" and "alprazolam" together because they are, essentially, the same thing.

Alright, now everyone put on your thinking caps and take a ride down a very deep, dark tunnel with me...

Let's start with manufacturing. Xanax (originally manufactured by Sandoz) was the first of it's kind for the USA and the one we all know and love. Whenever a big pharm company comes out with a drug, they are allowed a patent on the brand so that they can make back their money from the 10+ years the drug was going through FDA-required research.

Pause for a moment a take a step back. I said "FDA-required research", that only applies to America. Many other countries had already been making alprazolam tablets, they just never labeled it as Xanax nor did they sell it in the United States.

Flash forward to 2015, the patent on Xanax has expired, any pharmaceutical manufacturer can now legally create alprazolam tablets and sell them to major distributors and pharmacies (and they are considered generic drugs).

Pause again, generic drugs are allowed by the FDA, but what most people do not know is that all generics are allowed to have a +/- 20% variance in potency. Meaning a generic can be up to 20% weaker or 20% stronger than the brand-name counterpart and there's nothing we can do about it... the FDA allows it!

OK, so now hopefully you all understand the following things:

1. Xanax is a name-brand for alprazolam and was the first to be introduced to the United States by a manufacturer named Sandoz

2. Sandoz's patent on the drug has expired, and now there are over two dozen manufacturers making roughly 47 different types of generic Xanax, otherwise known as alprazolam.

3. The generic drugs can be 20% more or less potent per FDA regulations

4. We have not even discussed "off-market" manufacturing!

So, now that there are so many manufacturers that make alprazolam, in so many different parts of the world, quality control has essentially been thrown out the window.

Think about it, Walgreen and CVS can now order from a slew of manufacturers through a slew of distributors. Manufacturers rarely sell their drugs directly to pharmacies, hence the need for major drug distribution companies.

If I still have your attention, I'm impressed. Now we are going to talk about HOW these distribution companies go about getting enough alprazolam to sell to all the pharmacies around the world that need it.

Let's do some very simple, and very hypothetical math to put things in perspective:

Let us say there are 7 million people in the world that take, on average, a total of 4mg of alprazolam per day. That is 1/10th of 1% of the world population (an extremely small amount). In reality, the number is probably higher.

Now, that means that 28 million pills need to be produced and distributed on average, per day, without any backstock, in order to keep everyone's pill bottles full.

So where do sketchy third party distributors in India get the drugs? You guessed it, from an extremely sketchy manufacturer that makes alprazolam. It is not illegal to mass produce it in India, hence why people are talking about that country more than any other in this forum.

Let's take the GG249 for example. People have been talking about the average height/look/taste of that pill. Well my friends, there are probably 1000 or more people, chemists to be exact, that are making these things in their home-made laboratories all around the world.

Alprazolam is extremely easy to make; it requires only three ingredients.

1. Alprazolam powder
2. A binding agent to combine with the powder
3. A pill press

If you get manufacturing down, the cost per pill is roughly .19-.35 cents. The major pharmaceutical companies can produce it for between .08 and .12 cents per pill.

Let's take a look at alprazolam powder, it is quite possible one of the cheapest chemicals to procure worldwide. A manufacturer can purchase 1000mg of pure powder for just $100. Put that in perspective, that is 500 2mg pills for $100. The estimated value of that is $2500 at a rate of $5/pill (standard price for 2mg alprazolam).

I'm not here to talk about drug dealing though. I'm here to inform all of you that drugs are manufactured and sold through outlets that you cannot even image.

When people are describing the chalky taste, that is the chemical that is pressed with alprazolam to bind it. It can be one chemical, or a variety thereof that are used to create the alprazolam tablets.

In summary, there is so much more than I can possible describe on one thread regarding how a pill ends up going from a mixture of chemicals, to being put into your body.

It's shocking, enlightening, and all-in-all makes you grateful for the FDA system that we have in place. People complain about the lengthy process it takes to get a drug to market in the USA... I can state with certainty, it is for the benefit of humanity. If everyone were able to get their hands on pure alprazolam powder, they would die.

If everyone knew how to make it, not only would the pharmaceutical companies tank but people will literally be accidentally killing each other. It happens all the time on the deep web with bad shipments of drugs. Don't let it happen to you.

Stay informed and open-minded.

Its the 4 Says:

The GG249 are real if they have 3 lines and are 15mm long. But the dead give away is the number 4... if it is connected it's not made by Sandoz. Look closely at the number 4. It should not look like the one in this message. Don't believe me then look it up.

David Says:

There's actually been several other discussion threads started about these GG 249 bars either being fake or real. Most comments I've read state that the fake ones feel like a placebo or a 0.5mg dose, but then again every batch could be different. Based on my research, if it's real, the pill imprint "GG 249" on a white rectangle-shaped tablet should include a few score marks that EITHER look like this: G|G24|9 (but also with a partial score above/below the "2"); and on the backside of the tablet there should be three full score lines that would divide the pill into 4 pieces (if separated).

OR going vertical (as shown below) with no score marks on the back side:


Another factor you can use for verification is the size of the tablet. Legitimate one's made by Sandoz are reported to have a size of approx. 15.00 mm. However, I think it goes without saying that if you're not going through a legitimate pharmacy then it literally could be anything until you get it analyzed by a lab.

Hope this helps!

Old Xanax doesn't become chalky because they are old. I am working on my 2012 supply right now. If you lick a Xanax and they don't taste bitter it is not real. Generally, if you don't obtain it from a bona fide Pharmacy they are fake!

Jen Says:

Thanks so much for taking the time to explain in such detail. That answers any questions I may have had regarding why some generic 2mg Xanax were stronger than others. It seems there is never any rhyme or reason. Despite the fact that they may appear the same, every batch is different. Thanks again!

Chalky I've found to be the more fresh. I was given batches of yellow norcos once that I couldnt bite through without breaking a tooth, later to find out he was getting them through a waste management company getting outdated meds.

Task rx THE TRUTH Says:

If you can't tell a real from a counterfeit you shouldn't be taking them. GO TO AN AMERICAN PHARMACY!

Now for the pill imprint:


NOTICE THE 4, it's not supposed to be closed, it should resemble this 4 but with the top just barely separated. Next see how the 9 here curves, it shouldn't. It should come down straight at a slight angle and the scores aren't just a straight line, if you look very closely to a REAL GG249 the the score is actually slightly rounded. You have to look really close to notice this but it's there. FOR THOSE OF YOU ORDERING FROM COUNTRIES WHO DO NOT REGULATE THEIR MEDICATION OR ORDER W/ OUT A SCRIPT YOU ARE BOUND TO GET RIPPED OFF! AND YOU DESERVE IT. SAD TO SAY it's not hard to get prescribed xanax/alpralozam legally. I've been prescribed it for 15yrs for ptsd, sleeplessness and anger and anxiety issues! If you are buying them from the street go to a Dr if you abuse and run out. Remember what I just told you, a**holes will crush up 4 task bars with a touch of fentanyl and other binders so you get a bitter taste but it's not going to help you when you start to detox! Bottom line IF YOUR GOING TO TAKE DRUGS GET PRESCRIBED THEM.

Re: Cassandra (# 54) Expand Referenced Message

I currently get these prescribed by my doctor and filled by Kroger pharmacy. The numbers are in a vertical order with GG at the the top | 2 | 4 | 9 to the bottom.


Manufactured for by Sandoz. Note that the 4 is slightly open at the top and the 9 doesn't curl on the REAL ones.

Benzogirl Says:

PLEASE be totally aware of your xanax, being 2 or less mgs....if they taste at all like chalk...DO NOT TAKE THEM. Most folks I know don't even bother with bars anymore because they are too easy to get a "pill presser" for and Walla...a chalk colored mystery pill. Forgers usually (so far) only do the bars for more profit.

DMONEY101 Says:

Yeah my s*** is a good brand. Not as bitter as the last batch I had (X|A|N|AX) or some s*** like that. Mine are GG|2|4|9 with an open 4 and nothing on the back. Smooth as hell on the back. Hard to break (which usually means they're real) but what made me trip was compared to the last batch, putting a quarter under my tongue, it was as bitter and Xanax tasting as the last batch until it actually started to dissolve, and it still wasn't as bitter. Just took a quarter, let's see what happens...

For future reference, if your Z's don't have the slightest taste of a pill made out of the strongest most bitter grapefruit, then they are bunk. These are probably real.

O man Says:

Somebody (not me of course) just got a bunch of gg249s. I'm pretty familiar with what a 2mg alprazolam does. Just to Check the quality, someone tried just half the bar. It definitely had the effect of an entire bar. Very potent. He was looking through them too and some of the score marks are off. I don't think the pharmaceutical company would let that pass. The good news is that they work great anyway. Maybe better than the pharma ones.

Mikey Says:

Yes there are real gg|2|4|9 Xanax bars that are generic and they are shorter than most every other kind of bar period next to a normal bar they go up to three and a half of 1. But you have to be careful because Double G's are some of them most fake ones out there. You can tell because if they are hard as hell to cross their fake I always to a little piece and taste it

Re: Task rx THE TRUTH (# 40) Expand Referenced Message

I'm not being mean or hateful but where do u live, cuz finding a Dr. to prescribe them where i live is next to impossible? The DEA has cracked down so hard these doctors don't like to write anything controlled. I have legally taken benzos for 8yrs to be taken off them bc of bs the state is enforcing bc of too many overdoses. I don't think a drug after many years should be bumped up in the list of classes of controlled drugs bc some people abuse them. So the few people who really need them can't get them now which leads to more people buying off the street and not knowing what they're getting.
