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 anx...

is this a xanax

someone gave me a round white pill breakes down to four peaces like a bar it says on it 935160 i wanted to know if this ia a xanax ## just wondering if this is a xanax???? ## Nope, the white pill you describe split into 4 on one side, 93 over 5160 on the other side - is a 4 mg Tizanidine ## The answer Carver posted is correct. It is manufactured by Teva Pharmaceuticals, it is a muscle relaxant that is used to help alleviate the pain associated strains, sprains, and spasms. NDC code: 00093-5160 The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, dry mouth, and headache. Is there anything else I can help with?

Doctors Who Will Prescribe Xanax In San Antonio, TX

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...

Is my xanax real or fake? g 3722

Just got some bars they look well made but when I tried them no bitter taste and they are fatter than the usual ones I've been taking... They are white and they do have the scaling. They slope up on the sides and say g 3722 but again, they do not taste bitter and are fatter than the usual ones. Are they fake? ## Hi Kallie, Based on my research, a white rectangle shaped pill marked with "G|372|2" is identified as a 2mg generic Alprazolam tablet, manufactured by Greenstone. As far as size is concerned, the legitimate bars are reported to be approximately 15.00 mm. However, I don't think that's referring to the width of the pill; more likely the length. The edges are also meant to be rounded off, if that helps at all. Did you not get these with your doctor's prescri...

How strong are teva 833?

Are 2 teva 833 pills equal to a xanax bar? ## Yes, perhaps stronger at least at first? I tried my first Klonopin last week and thought it was too strong compared to Xanax. I also thought the same thing about Ativan. Xanax is so mellow & deadly! ## The tablet with the TEVA 833 marking contains 1mgs of Clonazepam, it is a benzodiazepine that's most commonly used to treat anxiety and nervous disorders. This medication has the potential to be habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache and irritability. Learn more Clonazepam details here. And yes, the dose conversion is 1 to 1 from Alprazolam to Clonazepam. Is there anything else I can help with? ## Can 1mg teva833 hurt me if i took 65mg of methadone? ## Does a 833 teva the green ones that break in ...

how can i tell if my g3722 xanax bar is real or not

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...

Xanax bar 2 mg Y one side 21 other

My mother in law is very ill. I am a stay at home mom so I am her caregiver during the day. My brother in law picked up her meds from the pharmacy yesterday and when I went to give her the 2 mg xanax bar I noticed it was different than usual. I tried looking it up but haven't been able to find anything. It is a white bar with three lines on one side there is a "Y" and the other side there is a "12". They are white. Has anyone seen these before? Are they new? I'm hesitant on giving it to her before I know for sure that it is definitely xanax. My brother in law never gave me a reason to worry about this but nothing surprises me anymore. Please any information would be greatly appreciated. ## Yes, Aurobindo Pharma lists this tablet as containing 2mgs of Alprazolam, ...

What is the best xanax generic 2017?

I'm going to get my script soon, ive been taking the Actavis brand (Walgreens) and I asked if my next refill it could be the Greenstone g3722. My dosage I'd 2mg. I has the Mylan xr but would say the ACTAVIS is better. Should I stick to Actavis or go for Greenstone? I haven't tried Sandoz nor Dava. ## Greenstone use to be best as they we're bought out by parent co.of Xanax but they dilluated the formula a few years ago. I've been using the 2mg XR Actavis and their not too bad...so yes Actavis works. ## No one "diluted" the formula when a new company bought them. @Benzolover, you seem like you need some further understanding of what Xanax is and does, just a tad too excited about the drug. ## I'm very informed on this drug. But I just wanted to ask what was...

Doctor that prescribes xanax in NYC or north Jersey

I have severe anxiety attacks and an insomniac. I literally pull an all nighter once a week. I am prescribed klonopin but i have too much anxiety for it to work fast enough. I need something stronger and faster. I am aware of all the effects as well as my parents. I just need a recommendation of a doctor who is at least not against prescribing it if they feel, which they will, I need script. My doctor's hospital has a policy against it. ## Actually, Klonopin and Xanax are considered to be equivalent in strength and efficacy, so it isn't likely that you will get much better results if you switch and in the regular release formulation, both take between 15 to 20 minutes to start working, there is no instant release to work any faster.

Refill xanax early

I take xanax three times a day ,so thirty tablets is a ten day supply. How many days early can i get them filled ## A day, possibly two. Why not ask the Doctor to prescribe for a one month supply? I know my first prescription years ago was for 10 days at the .25 strength. Over the years I now get 12x more a day and for 30 days instead of 10 days, how times have changed ## Hello, Lucy! How are you? Thank you, Eddy!! However, one also needs to take under consideration how it is prescribed. Does it direct you take it 3 times a day regularly, or does it say to take it as needed? If it's on an as needed basis, then it might be considered to be more than a 10 day supply. The FDA classifies Xanax as a benzodiazepine that's most commonly used to teat anxiety and nervous disorders. Its t...
