Ive been taking the 0.5 alprazolam round peach with the R and 029 on other side. Recently I was switched to the 0.5mg alprazolam oval peach with GG 257. I know they are the same thing but it feels like the oval ones don't kick in as fast and sometimes last longer. What's up with that? Has anyone else noticed a difference between the two? I thought maybe the coating is thicker so I tried sucking on them a bit before I swallow (yummy) but it didn't change anything. Any information on this would be good because I feel the need to redose and thats not right.
Hi, I was a pharmacist for four years, the difference is the one with GG 257 is made by sandoz pharmaceuticals and the one with 029 is made by actavis, there both still being made, all different pharmaceuticals companies use different ingredients,so it is possible that they affect you differently, so if you don't like the way that one works, then next time it's time to get your refill ask first if they have the ones you used to get and if not transfer your prescription to a different pharmacy, the way pharmacies work is they buy the meds from the company who sell it at the lowest price so they might have changed and that's why you got the different ones, let me know if this helps!!!
