My husband was given a "replacement" for alprazolam 2mg tablets which absolutely does NOT work! The pill is round, white, has intertwined ww on one side and a single score in the middle with a D on the top half and a 2 on the bottom half of the other side. I used to take xanax/alprazolam to help me sleep at a .5mg dosage, so I took 1/4 to see if it would work for me and it does not work! What is this drug?
Fake alprazolam - what is it?
Added 28 Jan 2011:
No manufacturer name listed at all. We are currently in Belize, Central America and this was given by the pharmacist here (who we know very well.) She said that her supplier could have given her anything and she wouldn't know it was "fake" until we took it and it didn't work - which is true; her pharmaceutical supplier could have given her anything. We are just a little worried as to what it actually is. We did stop taking it and she was able to get the "real" thing, but I'm still curious to know what it is! Any help would be appreciated.
