Is the yellow oval shaped (S 901 marked) generic Xanax a poorer quality than other generics of Xanax? I have taken the generic form for a while, but I take it very seldom (only when I'm wired at night and can't sleep) and I usually take only about 1/4 of a tablet. Last time I got a refill, the pill was a light yellow oval shaped tablet with S 901 on it. I can take a whole one of these tablets and not get the effectiveness of 1/4 of the other two generics I had previously. (One of those generics was a little round peach-colored pill, and the other was a small peach-colored oval pill.) I don't think I could have acclimated because I took it so seldom and took so little (1/4 of the dose). As soon as I started this current prescription, though, I could tell a dramatic (lessening) of the effectiveness. Makes me wonder who manufactures this particular generic and where. Is it from China or from some third world country?

Chinese Xanax is the best! Love the little round ones that look like little Egg Foo Youngs!

The tablet with the S 901 marking is manufactured by Dava Pharmaceuticals and they list them as containing 0.5mgs of Alprazolam.

However, there can be differences in the amount of the active ingredient, when going from one generic to the next. Thus, this one may be a littler lower than the others you were taking. However, since the differences are so slight, your body will usually adjust in about a week or so.

The FDA classifies this medication as being a benzodiazepine that's most commonly used to treat anxiety and nervous disorders. It carries the risk of being habit forming and could cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache and irritability.

Is there anything else I can help with?

It sounds like the small orange ones are a smaller dose. Most likely .5 alprazolam.
