... 2 mg, both codes begin with R, but with different numbers on them. One is R039, but I don't recall what the other numbers were, just that they started with R, also. Another question I have it: Does the 2 mg mean the entire bar or each section of the bar? Thanks for any info.
Xanax - Does anyone know the difference between alprazolam bars? One is white, other is yellow, both

This same situation happened to me yesterday at the pharmacy I wish they would tell you before you walk out with your prescription if they have switched up companies on their medications because honestly there is different effects with the different generic forms. I researched this and the white ones are extended-release but they both say on the bottle the company they come from is called greenstone so why would they give extended release tablets one time and then next time give just a plain yellow ones? It's weird but I just feel like the pharmacy should have to tell you if they switch up companies or meds or generic forms or whatever the case may be because some people prefer the yellow because it works on him better and some people prefer the white
THEY ARE THE SAME WITH THE EXCEPTION OF THE MANUFACTURERS. neither are time release. Neither is stronger than the other. Each is 2mg, and each little square breaks down to .5mg. There's your definitive answer. It's the truth. Give them all the dumb names you want. They are bars and are the same except for the companies that make them and the way they look. End of story.
Whole bar is 2 mg. Each section should be .5 mg
A Xanax BAR is two mgs of alprazolam Wether it's yellow green or even the mylan a4 pies and are each scribed in four sections... So lets say your looking at a gg249 white Xanax bar, each of the four sections of it contains .5 mgs, so if you add up all for sections it equals 2mgs. Did I answer your question, the other person forgot to put the period in front of the 5 she meant to say each section of a bar contains .5 mgs of alprazolam.
The yellow xanax which has a street name of yellow school bus are time released, the white bars also called white ladders are not time released, but both yellow nd white bars are 2mgs.
I think yellow ones are extended release white ones are not. And that's why some people prefer the yellow cause it lasts longer and some like white cause it hits ya harder
They both are 2 mg. They are just from different manufactuers. There is no factual information with the difference between the white & yellow bars, however, like the other person that commented before me, I have heard some people say they rather have the white ones, or vice versa. I've been prescribed to xanax on & off for about 7 years, so I have seen many different types (colors, shape), but as far as trying to find out if the yellow ones are any different from the white ones, I haven't found anything that's different between the two: for example I thought the yellow ones were either time or extended release when I first took them, but all the research I've done through websites, & asking a couple of friends that are also prescribed to them, I haven't found any differences... Just different colors & different companies
Each section of the bar is 5 mg. There's 4 sections, so one whole bar is exactly 2 mg.
Hope this helped :)
The difference is the company who makes them. Different companies make the yellow and the white one. You can use the pill identifier to find out who the companies are, I forget. But both sticks are a total of 2 mg. I think each segment is 1/2 mg? Again, I forget. I thought the white one was stronger, other people think the yellow is. They're both the same. We have great imaginations.
