I have a RX for 2 mg Xanax. I get the generic Alprazolam, green bar, s 90 3. It is marked with 3 score lines, but I am not sure what they mean or if it is okay to cut it in half or 3rds. 2 mgs works great for me if I am having an anxiety attack, but if I just need help falling asleep, it is too much. I end up with a "hangover" the next morning.
I have never seen a green bar but have been on xanax (alprazolam) for over 15 years. i am prescribed 2 mg 3 times a day or as needed. the 3 lines are score lines which tell you where to cut them. You don't take them in thirds. you take them 4ths. Thus if you cut on each line you will get 4 equal parts each part being 1/2 (.5) mg. so if you take 2 of the pieces or 1/2 of the pill it will be 1 mg. Always cut on the scores as you get equal amounts of medicine. The can also easily be broken on the score lines with your fingers. just fyi, they also come round and work on the same principle. doses are usually, .25mg, .50mg, 1mg and 2mg. Hope this helps.
