82% IS WRONG GO TO THE FDA SITE AND READ ABOUT GENERICS the only difference is the binders same amount of active ingredients both BRAND and Generic are allowed 3.5% difference from one batch to the next and they are tested even in the blood of patients to make sure READ IT YOURSELF on the FDA site that regulates brand and generic drugs.Chuck1957

My step mother is a pharmacy tech, & she said the difference in them is up to what the business wants to pay for ingredients wise. So yes, there is a difference in how they are made. The green ones do nothing for me, the blue round ones don't either, just the blue football ones did. I get 90 1mg a month & they're the round blue ones , and yes I can tell the difference from when I got the blue football ones. The pharmacy here stopped getting the blue football ones because everyone was asking for them.

It depends on both the manufacturer and the milligrams. I have been on xanax for a long time. Peach colored (round or football shaped) are .5mg. Blue (round or football shaped) are 1mg. Any bar shaped xanax whether its white, yellow, or green is the strongest 2mg. There is also a generic that has a green football shaped xanax which is also 1mg.

the differences involve the manufacturers and the strengths as can be seen at the following link:
You might also look upalprazolam, the geneic form of xanax, to see other forms and colors by using the pill identifier in the blue tool bar above.

Only difference is the manufacturer and the binders and fillers in the pill.If its a 1mg xanax tab, it contains 1mg .I have tried them ALL over the past 17 yrs and all work the same. They may SEEM to work better/worse bc its a different brand and your expecting it... but its All psychological.
P.s. Only thing is avoid the generic MYLAN... something is wrong with that brand
