I have been taking xanax for years for terrible insomnia. I have taken 2 mg of xanax every night at bedtime and it helps me sleep through the night. Initially, my doctor tried every sleeping pill for me but xanax nothing else worked. So I've been taking xanax for years and it has always worked. I have always taken the blue football shaped pill UNTIL my last refill 5 days ago. I was given.the green 1 mg football shaped xanax. I haven't slept in days! Why is this? I wouldn't think the color would have anything to do with it. My question is how do I tell my doctor this and get my trustworthy blue xanax back? And why do the green ones not work?
without the numbers and letters on the pills, I can't look up and see what you have. Normally the blue 1mg is the alprazolam and other companies they may make them in any color they want so I am guessing you just have another brand,And it should work there are all kinds of companies making the generic Xanax what you should do is take the bottle to the pharmacy where you get it and ask the pharmacist what is the difference in what you have always gotten and these new green ones because they are not working for you.If you have it take the blue old bottle and the new one with you. In rare cases, someone may not agree with a binder that holds the pills together but the same amount of Alprazolam is in each pill but you can ask the pharmacist and see what he or she has to say. did they tell you it was a different color when you picked it up? Don't like to say it but the mind is stronger than any medication and some people just can't adjust to another company I have no problem with whichever one I get.But this is the only way you well find out and tell them if they can you don't want anything but the blue ones from now on. They can't always get the blue they order it by drug and the company just sends them the one they have in stock. But there is a rare occasion that you could have something else in there take it back to the pharmacy or call them.Chuck1957
