will name brand Xanax act faster. is there a difference in strength between the two? I am asking because I have very extreme anxiety attacks, and trying to prep for a doctors appointment.
I have taken both and there is no difference between the two.
If you are going to not shop around for a real pharmacy ( meaning other than commercial) it will indeed pay off. I've found that the name brand is certainly prime; however, if generic is necessary... I recommend the Greenstone brand or Sandoz will work best as well. Please ask a local pharmacy. They haven't a problem telling you their brand. Some pharmacies carry more than one brand.
Yes brand name Xanax is faster working and is highly effective rather than generic "Alprazolam"
The problem with generic Xanax is the inert ingredients used. I have tried every brand and talked to dozens of pharmacist's that agree. The ONLY one that is as good as brand name Xanax is the generic Greenstone brand as it is made by the same pharmaceutical company as the brand name. I found it difficult to find a pharmacy to special order it for me as I have severe panic and anxiety disorder to where I can't hold done gainful employment. Don't let anyone fool you, generics of this medication except for greenstone brand are very inferior.
Hello sr250g, I have taken both the generic version(Alprazolam) & Xanax the brand name. My doctor told me that they are equally good... but the brand name is more expensive! Some insurance companies will not pay for the brand name & the pharmacy will subsitued the generic version.
