I was on Alprozalam from"98"-"04",but the pharmacy stopped carrying the brand(Roache),and the new generic they had was like taking candy,did nothing for anxiety.My Pshyc explained that the filler in the various generics was the difference, and he started me on name brand in "04". I've been taking 8 mg a day for the past 7 years. I have new insurance now and they will only pay 50% per script of name brand.I can't afford the 400.00 a month to stay with name brand.So I'm trying to find out what brands are the most popular in the group.I take Xanax for extreme GAD,and it also helps with bi-polar,BPD,COD,PTSD,sleeping and eating disorders as well.Any answers would be greatly appreciated!!

There has to be more then one company making generic xanax. I would try the generic, and if it doesn't work, ask the pharmacy to try to get it from another company. According to drugstore.com you're getting cheated for the brand name. If your insurance is paying 50% you shouldn't be paying more then $240. That's still outrageous for a drug that's been around since I was a young person. When are these drug companies going to stop worrying about how much they can stick in their ceo's pockets, and care something for their fellow man.

i can honestly say that GREENSTONEis the best generic... its actually made by the same pharmacuetical company that makes the brand name. your pharmacist will confirm this. i pay 24.88 for 60 2mg tablets. also ... sandoz,actavis(purepak),and dava are also very good generics.what ever you do... AVOID MYLAN!! wal-mart is notorious for carrying this defective brand of alprazolam. beware of it! hope ive helped! :)

when i looked into this about a year ago, in march 2014, i found that there are supposedly huge differences between the generics made by different manufacturers. at that time, Greenstone seemed to have the best reputation, so i finally found a pharmacy that carried Greenstone alprazolam. i take one or two half-milligram doses each month, not a lot, but when taken, i want it to work as close to the name brand as possible. apparently, none of them are nearly as good, but some come a lot closer than others. now, if Greenstone was bought out by someone else this past year, it may no longer be the best alternative. that is how i found your post, is looking into the generics and how they compare with each other right now.
