Greenstone Alprazolam 2 Mil Not Working

So I have been on Greenstone Alprazolam for over 10 years through CVS. I always take them as prescribed. Never abused them. They always worked quickly and brought me down from any attack.. Out of the blue 3 months ago CVS doesn't carry them anymore. I tried the new brand they had (Dava), and they were awful!. Did nothing for my Panic Disorder. So Greenstone told me to go to a Ma and Pa Pharmacy, so I did and they ordered them. I was elated. So I get them and took it right away. I noticed they were chalky and were only slightly bitter and it took 45 mins to get any feeling.And the feeling I got was just a little sleepy and nothing else.. That is not how they usually are. Normally they would kick in less than 20 mins and would take that hot feeling I get when I panic away and replace it with a nice normal feeling. So I figured those somehow were bad. The next month, I called the distribution center for Pfizer and they told me to go to a specific Walgreens and they would order them. So I did. They ordered me Greenstone 2 mil. And guess what?. They were EXACTLY the same. But this time, I felt even hotter. So, WHAT THE HELL is going on?. Only since 3 months ago has this been happening, and I been on that brand for so long I don't know what to do??. And am hanging on by a thread..My panic disorder has been in check for so long. I know it's something with the recent Refills because I had a couple older ones, and I took them and they worked EXACTLY like they shoulda!!!. Does anyone know what's going on or have this problem? And what would be the closest Generic I could get to my Greenstone 2 mil?

Can you post back with the markings on the tablets in question?

The FDA warns that this medication carries the risk of being habit forming, and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache, drowsiness, and irritability.

It is normal for our bodies to get used to any given dosage of a medication that we have taken for a long time, but if you have old ones with the same marking and dosage, this makes no sense. Can you please post back with more details?

Re: Verwon (# 1)

G3722 is the marking. It's real. But even talking to others, they say it is really weak all of a sudden. I've been on Greenstone 2 mg bars for over 10 years. Apparently they changed the formula. And I also heard Pfizer will be discontinued for lack of Pharmacies distributors buying them. What is the next best generic? This sucks. Greenstone had ingredients that helped my blood pressure.

I'm surprised the Dava didn't work for you. I've had them before and found them to be quite effective.

I would recommend Sandoz. That's what I currently take (and have been for years). Had previous been on 1mg gg258 blue oval and am now on 2mg gg249 white bar. They work, for me at least. Give them a try.

Re: Mason (# 3)

Thanks Mason. Yeah. The Dava Green Bars were bad. So many generics. Have you ever tried the 2 mill bars from Walgreens. Think the Manufacturer is Activas?. I think I am gonna have order Sandoz. Chain Pharmacies do not have them around here. This last month has been hell.

I've never had the Actavis alprazolam. If you have a Kroger nearby they carry the Sandoz. At least the ones here in my area (Indianapolis) do.

Greenstone changed their formulation in 2014 but it is identical to brand name xanax 2mg in everyway, but imprint greenstone is back to a wonderful new formulation as of 2017 june. Activas is the yellow bars and greenstone is literally the best generic alprazolam out there. All ingredients active and non active are identical to brand name. Get back with greenstone. They are back to the good og formulation. There are new blue bars out by breckenridge pharma made by centaur pharma made in india but first ever approved blue bar ever imprinted b707 and blue and shape of greenstone I like my drugs usa made but would love feedback on new blue bars by breckenridge and centaur imprinted b707 and shape like greenstone but other than brand name greenstone it's only one worth getting. Maybe your pharmacy just has expired ones or old version formulation ones. Maybe try asking a new pharmacy, but greenstone is identical to brand name and is currently the best generic and has gone back to its original formulation. Definitely better than sandoz.

Greenstone did change their formulation in 2014 but they have gone back to the good formulation as of June 2017 and they are definitely better than any other generic as they are completely identical to brand name Xanax I also have a message in review for you so wait for it there's a new blue bar that just came out by Centaur Pharmaceuticals and I wonder how those are their shaped just like the greenstone but they're the first blue bars FDA approved I would love feedback on that

I'm taking Greenstone, 1 mg & it has changed. I was taking Sandoz from CVS & they started prescribing a brand from India that made me ill. I'm going back on the brand for my refill & if the brand Xanax has changed we're in real trouble. If it has I will search again for a pharmacy that prescribes Sandoz. It makes no sense to me that Sandoz is too expensive, but pharmacies still prescribe the brand which is very high priced & now that I changed insurance plans, they cover the brand.
