I have been taking alprazolam 0.5 in the a.m. for several years made by Mylan. It has bern discontinued by the manufacturer. Costco is now carrying Greenstone. Will I notice a difference in the manufacturer? I suffer from PTSD since my son was killed. I take regular alprazolam 0.5 at bedtime by Dava... seems to be fine. My dr. tells me not to change manufacturer on generics. Is greenstone a reputable company?

That is a very strange thing your Doctor told you about not changing Generic brands, That is like saying only drink Royal Crown Cola, not Pepsi or Coke. A pharmacy will change brands if their supplier finds a better price. Just yesterday I picked up Mylan 1 mg Xanax at Rite Aid. If your Doctor is truly worried for you and just wants to prescribe the name brand version of Xanax that is possible too, although insurance will probably not cover it.

It seems as though I am allergic to some of the "fillers" used in some prescriptions. That is why she said stick with what I am used to. Thank you for your response though.

I understand that issue, Panchita, I am very sensitive to medications, and any slight change, too. It can be very annoying, and frustrating. I dread my pharmacy switching.

However, without knowing specifically what filler(s) you are sensitive to, the only thing you can do is try one from a different manufacturer, and see how it works for you, unless there is a risk of you experiencing life threatening allergic reactions.

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

What symptoms do you experience?
