Xanax Overview

Alprazolam, available under the trade name Xanax, is a potent, short-acting benzodiazepine anxiolytic—a minor tranquilizer.[2] It is commonly used for the treatment of anxiety disorders, especially of panic disorder, but also in the treatment of generalized anxiety disorder (GAD) or social anxiety disorder.[3][4] It was the 12th most prescribed medicine in the United States in 2010.[5] Alprazolam, like other benzodiazepines, binds to specific sites on the GABAA receptor. It possesses an...

xanax white bar r039 fake or real
25 Replies RSS
I just want to say I am prescribed Xanax and I just recently came across these white R039 2mg. A lot of people on the web are giving alot of different answers and to clear things up they are not fake. They taste real, look a little odd, and the print they used isn't spot on.. but they work great for my anxiety and they are strong I could promise you that. They are real no doubt. ## Hi Jay, Based on my research the real Alprazolam bars marked "R039" are supposed to be yellow and not white. However, this is not to say that the white ones don't work. A lot of reviews I've seen have identified them as counterfeit meds from Pakistan, but they DO reportedly contain legitimate Alprazolam, despite their fake reputation. It's a good knock-off in my honest opinion, since m...

My Doc will not refill my xanax Im feeling sick
570 Replies RSS
I was prescribed Prozac & Xanax 10 years ago by my psychiatrist for depression & severe panic attacks. He started me on 1mg 3 times a day. Around Dec 2005 he increased my daily dose to 1 mg - 4 times a day. I have been a patient of his now for 10 years where I see him every 3 months. Through the years, there has been a few times were I had to call to reschedule my appointment and a couple of times he had to do the same. He would call in my meds for the amount I would need to get me through to my next appointment. This month I had an appointment for May 27th I called to reschedule due to transportation. I do not drive now and my ride canceled on me. so, I rescheduled my app. for June 17th I then requested my meds be called in until my appointment, a 3 week supply. She said she wo...

Why does xanax make you steal?
5 Replies RSS
I have been taking xanax since I was 17 and had my first baby. I started to notice that I was stealing a lot more than I ever had. Now I'm looking at criminal charges for stealing. So, if this is true then I would love for someone to send me something stating that xanax can and does make people steal. ## You better believe it will make you steal among other things to get what you need! It was posted in previous PDRs that benzo "withdrawal can last for LIFE" And that is VERBATIM! Whether they still print it in PDRs I haven't looked , but beware... ## I can't entirely say that xanax led to my kleptomania. I do strongly believe it lowered my inhibitions and impaired my thinking. I began thinking the security bulbs in stores weren't real!!! Please seek help. They do ...

Refilling my valid Xanax prescription early
605 Replies RSS
I only see one doctor and he gives me a 3 month supply of xanax. When I went the last time he wrote me out a prescription but I still had two refills. I had a friend and her husband passed away and I gave her some of mine thinking I would have no problem re-filling the prescription. I had sense enough not to go to the same pharmacy and not to give my insurance information. So I go to this small drug store by my house and I had to fill out paperwork such as dob, name and my DL #. Well they paged me to the front of the store and advised me that it was 7 days to early for them to re-fill. So my question is where can I go to re-fill a prescription that is valid written by the same doctor. I only tried one place, I'm guessing they must have a data base if you try and refill your prescrip...

Which is better: green s 903 or yellow r 039 xanax?
5 Replies RSS
I just wanted to know which version of xanax tablets are better and more effective? Green s 903 or yellow r 039 xanax rectangular? Any help appreciated! ## Both are very good. You will find both effective. ## @Erica, I believe an answer like Eddy's can only come from someone who's actually tried both pills, so he may very well be right in his own opinion.. but it's important to know first and foremost that these types of medications can still effect each person differently. In which case, it would probably be best to consult with your doctor first before trying out anything new. Is this your first time taking Alprazolam? ## Yes I feel very little difference personal preferences and the way your body breaks it down the only advantage of the yellow r039 is 4 little pieces comp...

Are the white gg249 xanax fake?
51 Replies RSS
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?? ## 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 sco...

Klonopin vs Xanax
11 Replies RSS
I had panic attacks a while back and was put on xanax for them. Now they started again and I want to go back to get something for them. My question is how do I tell the Dr. I want klonopin instead of xanax? The xanax put me to sleep where the others don't. ## Hello, Whisper! How are you? The best thing to do is not to ask for a specific medication, just inform your doctor of the problem you had with the Xanax and let them suggest an alternative. The FDA classifies this medication as a benzodiazepine, so 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? ## Stay with what you have. I asked for Ativan once, lost my Xanax, hated Ativan, stopped and almost died. Remember, ...

So if any1 knows a doctor in the monmouth county area of new jersey that will prescribe me xanax please let me know...thank u ## Actually, part of your problem is that you are so convinced that you need that specific medication and are already insisting you will need it for life. This will automatically make doctors wary of prescribing it, because, even though you may n...

Doctors Who Will Prescribe Xanax In San Antonio, TX
43 Replies RSS
I recently moved to San Antonio, TX and need to find a local doctor that will prescribe me xanax for my anxiety. ## I am not familiar with doctors in that area, but one piece of advice I can offer is not to call doctors and ask if they will prescribe a certain medication. When you do this, you will usually just get told no immediately, because most doctors see it as drug seeking behavior. The best thing you can do, if someone does recommend a doctor, is to set up and appointment and make sure that they get a full copy of your medical records. Most doctors are more apt to follow the prescribing practices of their colleagues, when they can see the documented information. Learn more Xanax details here. Does anyone else have any suggestions to add? ## alamo mental health. dr earl stenger. M...

how can i tell if my g3722 xanax bar is real or not
196 Replies RSS
My latest script for xanax has imprint g3722 and it seems to have no taste or effects. I've been taking them for a long time and to my surprise they seem to do nothing. Have you heard of this? It is a white xanax bar that seems to be a little thick. ## Hello, Jeff! How are you? I'm sorry about the problem that you're having. While there is a tablet manufactured by Greenstone Limited that has this marking, which they list as containing 2mgs of Alprazolam, there have been many recent reports like yours, which leads me to suspect that the ones you have may be fake, especially with the size difference. It seems everyone who has noticed their lack of efficacy has also commented that they seem to be thicker than the ones they've received from this company, before. The FDA list...
