I’ve been on benzos for years, currently I get 60 2mg I month. Through the years I learned Mylan is just garbage, I use to like Dava but the last time I went with them they were junk. Sandoz are ok. This time I got Greenstone which is a subsidiary of Pfizer, so they are made in the same location same binders just about same everything. I really like the Actavis bars, they seem to have more of a punch to them. Any opinions on Greenstone or Actavis?
I've had the Actavis brand for a long time and they are good!
I am currently taking 2mg of Xanax XR three times daily (Generic) but have been on benzos for about 15 years and used to be prescribed 2mg Xanax IR up to 6mg a day. Xanax XR generic my ONLY preference is Greenstone. That being said, when taking Xanax IR, the most Narcotic Xanax Generic is Name Brand/Greenstone. Although Actavis makes a nice 2mg IR Tablet, depending on the results you are seeking, I find the generic to be a very quick pumper. Effects hit you like a “School Bus” (hence their nickname) and then therapeutic effects are long gone before 4 hours. The most realistic and therapeutic Xanax IR tablet IMHO would be Sandoz with Name Brand/Greenstone in a close second. I definitely prefer my Xanax 2mg IR’s white, or I do not find them to be therapeutic. However, I do find the release of XANAX XR 2mg Greenstones to be also identical to Name Brand and I get the most therapeutic results with only that generic when it comes to Xanax XR.
Pharmaceutical companies change often. Xanax has always been a product of Upjohn pharmaceutical. Before generics cluttered the shelf's it was brand only. It was depressing to see the first generic depence. However greenstone is fast release version remanes to be very close to brand name Xanax. They have changed somewhat but still are erthe cleanest and closest to brand. The yellow bars made by Actavis, a slow release version but work well and are of good quality.
That summarizes the facts. Generics are somewhat different, but are clinically equivalent
GREENSTONE is as close as you'll get to the original from Pfizer Inc. Pfizer not only owns GREENSTONE generics, but their drugs are the EXACT proprietary formulation as each previous name-brand drug they manufacture.
Just from being on this topic, TEVA took over Adderall IR in 2017ish and are usually carried exclusively through Walgreens, but I've seen them elsewhere, and Walgreens used to ONLY carry the Actavis generic of XANAX, yet I filled my 2mg Rx December of 2020, and they were Sandoz - even my friend who is Rx'd 1mg tabs from Walgreens, she got Sandoz blue-footballs. COVID has now become evident as the strict shipping laws disable most meds easy access to the U.S. and during 2020, more than 70 million new prescriptions for XANAX alone were written. Not even counting Ativan, Klonopin, nor Valium.
Yes I’m going through the exact same thing right now all I can find is the little white ones I cannot take the white ones and all our pharmacies is got is the white ones I’m looking for a pharmacy that can order the actavis brand yellow bars I get 90 a month. I mean if I could call the pharmaceuticals to send my prescriptions to the pharmacy and pay them for all their work I just want my right medication and can’t get it I’ve been going through this for the last six months but yes you are right there’s something going on with the Xanax is only the 2 mg though nowadays even the ones that come from the pharmacy
