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.
Xanax GG257 vs. Xanax 029?

I know this is an old thread, but concerned about that the recent post from 9/2019 stated about all of the generic's are the same. As an RN for years and serious PTSD & Bruxism to where I break my teeth. They are not the same and it is very important to know this. I was just searching for comments of the generic alprazolam 029: round peach. My mail order pharmacy switched after I had been on the S-901 ovals for years. I have had a horrible time with this generic from a few days after starting it. Terrible nightmares, waking up after biting the inside of my cheek. They make me feel off... not sure how to describe. It may be the dosage is off and it's effecting me.
All generics are different and the reason being is the fillers and dosage do vary.
I fear for some of you that kept increasing your dose on your own, may end up OD'ing.
I found one of my ovals in my purse and took it the other night, what a difference.
Please talk to your pharmacy if you notice it just isn't working. My mail order pharmacy pretty much told me to deal with it because that was who they were using. I went to a local Walmart and the Pharmacist knows I am having a really hard time and has ordered from another Pharmaceutical Co.
I was always partial to the oval ones but everyone is different, in my opinion,, and that's 25 years of taking them.. the oval ones and round ones are about the same,, some people claim that one is better, but they're really about the same, if you feel strongly about it, you can call around and see what pharmacies carry the round ones that you like and start Going there to get them filled. I've done that before. It worked out fine.
I been trying to get alprazolam prescribed but my psychiatrist died and don't know how to get em now I have to go to the streets which are fake please help. I'm from Dallas Tx
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!!!
The fillers in the two pills could be different, making a difference in the availability of the med. If this continues to be a problem, I would ask my pharmacist if they could get you the ones you used to get.
