I am prescribed xanax and I run out early often because my aunt is prescribed the same dose, I get the 2mg bars, she recently gave me a few that looked like regular bars, but they said ONAX with 2 on the other side. Exactly the same as the brand name xanax, but they said ONAX. I looked them up on another site and apparently they are made by ocean pharmaceuticals and made in Pakistan. They didn't have the typical xanax taste, but did somewhat. Does anyone know of these? Are they safe to take? Anyone who could help would be great! Thank you!

I have never gotten medication from Pakistan, but I do know of some people who get their drugs from overseas so to get them cheaper. I suspect your aunt is also doing this to get hers cheaper. They most likely are the same drug as far as the active ingredient but you never know for sure as those countries may not have the strict laws that we have here. If your aunt is taking and she responds ok to the medication you are probably fine to take.
I must ask if you have a problem with the xanax such that you run out early? Do you need a dosage adjustment from the doctor or could you be abusing them? Do be careful taking more than the prescribed amount of the xanax. You run an increased risk of addiction when you do this.
Just my thoughts and hope this helps,

If your pharmacy is buying their products from any middleastern country (pakistan, india, iran), china or a few of the other asian countries ur best bet it to change pharmacies. This country is currently being flooded with fake Rx pills especialy in the oxycodone and benzodiazapine area and these are the countries they are coming from. A method they use for the benzos like xanax is to use a low grade benzodiazapine that's actualy legal but not very well know. The majority of it is coming from russia I believe so u can feel like ur still taking a valium or whatever but the effects are not as strong and will not help other than idiopathic mental effects of "knowing" u took a ton of valium. Plus there are different types of generic xanax out there, I've been on the stix(as we call them here) for a few years now and they're alwayse long and thin but everything else can change.
I've had ones with 4 sections(3 scores) on one side and 4 sections(3 scores) on both sides, and before these my 2mg xanax only had 3 sections(2 scores), these I received most often and became used too. I've been told the yellow ones are XE or extended release but my doctors hav given me extended release xanax and they're alwayse round tabs even the 2 and 4 mg and that's what my doc alwayse said. U should alwayse be careful buying meds off the net or over seas cause I think its a 75% chance of bein fake and or nowwhere near the correct strength. And remember pharmacists are humans jus like u or me in the same economy so if they're buyin their product outside the states its to save and make more money even if its knowingly fake and potentialy lethal. Pharmacists lose their licenses constantly because they normaly aren't takin their own product and would rather save and make more money then care for your pain, problems, and/or ailments. Remember pharmacies close everyday for "unknown" reasons and in a society where were all heavily medicated and constantly becoming more and more dependent on them, a pharmacy closing usualy means they were cought or horrible quality control

I have been take xanax bars since I was 14 years old I am now 27, I just recently came across these onax bars and let me tell you... They work! I usually take a quarter of the bar at a time and it just makes me feel normal but when I took a quarter of the onax bar... It felt like a took a whole xanax bar so whoever tells u they don't work they have not takin one. So these bars last so much longer then the regular xanax do to how much stronger they are. They are safe and I highly recommend them especially if U are worried on becoming dependent because u don't have to take as much and u can wait a lot longer before u need to take another one.

I'm prescribed to XANAX or alphazolam (genric form and name) I have had almost every 2mg xanax "bar" genric and the non genric ome that says XANAX on the front and the number "2" Obviously for the MG dosage. Also I started on 1mg xanax aka blue footballs usually with the code I perfer G3721 on front side and just a groove or ridge in the back for easy cutting in halfs. I too have had the unfortunate ONAX 2mg bars.
YES! They are NOT american made like all the rest of the xanax aka alphazolam here in the US. They are Pakistans form of xanax which is not completely xanax but does have SOME qualities just like xanax (american made aka FDA Approved)
I've tried them 2 or 3 times and was very dissapointed because they have no fda or are fda regulated like the USA has some of those ONAX are weaker than others hints NO FDA approval. In Mexico u can also get these ONAX n is where I came to find out they had come from. So just lije Mexico NO FDA to regulate at all for prescription medication kinda Y u can go a lil hope n the wall pharmacy in Mexico n purchase pills considered NARCOTICS SUCH HAS XANAX,VICODIN,OXYCOTTON,ETC. BUT AGAIN NO FDA SO I WOULDN'T TRUST IT. Might take more than usual cause u think they're not working fully and OD or vice versa u take ur recommended amount and nothing happens I know cauze it's happen to me not the OD but thinking oh these 2 ONAX I domt feel let me take another 1 or 2 n yaaaa then u figure out u were wrong. So I would never buy or take ONAX pills again!
