There are so many different types of xanax or alprazolam. I'm trying to figure out why my doc prescribed this particular pill. I want to know which ones are the most addictive but effective.

those are the bars. They are the best fir anxiety but the most addictive. They are 2 mg and if you have never taken then before i would cut it in half, But what ver you do only use them for a short amount of time. They are very addictive and the brain stops making gabba eventually ( i have been in xanax 13 years) and if you stop, over a long period of taking them they can give you seizures. they are the most ADDICTIVE benozo. I'd try clonopin or diazapam

This particular pill is the 2mg xanax bar that is scored in three places so you can divide them easily. As the previous poster mentions, all benzodiazepines including xanax are addictive. There are two types of benzodiazepines: the short acting like xanax, and the longer acting like Klonopin. The longer acting are easier to taper from when discontinuing. Any of the benzodiazepines can cause a seizure if stopped aburptly once the body is use to them. Once you have been taking for an exteneded period of time, you will have to taper off this medicine slowly so to avoid withdrawals when you want to stop taking it.
There are many, many different benzodiazepines to choose from. Xanax is a good one for quick action and the bars you can split into 1/2 mg pieces and take the minimum amount required to address the panic or anxiety. Depending on the nature of your anxiety and your particular symptoms would determine the best benzodiazepine to choose. As far as the different types of xanax, they alll contain the same active ingredient (alprazolam) just different manufacturers and different strengths, shapes and colors.
