    Re: brand of xanax

    I have never heard of alltop. I believe that alprazolam goes by Alprax in India (though there could be others).

    My dog has tried meds from India (carisoprodal and alprazolam) and said that they were not even worth the packaging they were shipped in. Stick to Upjohn, Pfizer, and Gador, etc.

    Someone I know has tried the round, orange alltop brand alprazolam and found that it is very effective. He hasn't tried the others you are speaking of though. Do not purchase the pinix brand indian alprazolam though as he has found those utterly useless, not even sure if there is actually any alpraz in them.

    Just because a drug is manufactured in another country under a name used in your country doesn't mean it is that drug. Even if the alprazolam from india would check out at molecularly identical to alprazolam in the U.S. that pill, from that batch, was not approved by the FDA for distribution in your area.

    Considering the plethora of brand and generic labs manufacturing such drugs in North America, there really should be no reason to try and import said drugs from another country. Benzodiazepines (at least where Canmedaa is) are often cheaper than the dispensing fee and really shouldn't be that hard to get a hold of with or without a legal script.

    Accepting drugs manufactured in a country of lesser socioeconomic status is very much like accepting complicated surgery from the same country. Be careful and don't waste your money.

    Be Safe,

    be careful when ordering from indian pharmacies. swim once naively ordered 30 of what were supposed to be alprazolam from an indian pharmacy. I was so excited when the package arrived in the mail, but that feeling of elation plummeted to angry disappointment the second he put one in his mouth. the pill had a very sweet taste to it, not like alprazolam at all. needless to say, even after consuming a large quantity of them zero effects were felt.

    I had a few of the exact same brand a few weeks ago. There 1mg alprazolam alright.

    Circle shape with a score on one side & kind of a orange/peachy color to them.

    I took one 1 1mg pill to test out one night & got the same sort of effect as he dose from the Upjohn 90 pills (blue football shaped ones)

    The next time they were tried I took 3mg's of them & fell asleep about an hour & half after he had popped them & stayed asleep for most of the day. Although he did drink a lot of alcohol the night before so that could have had some effect on him as well.

    Usually (almost always), equivalent doses of the same compound, regardless of brand, will be the same potency.

    So 1mg alltop (if it truly is alprazolam) will equal say 1mg of Xanax (alprazolam).

    I have bought alprazolam from India on a few occasions, and finds the 1mg tablets at least as potent as 10mg of prescription diazepam from the UK.

    Most medications such as at CVS and Walgreens come from India, and other countries anyways. So bob thinks it will work just as well as any other Xanax. IT will have the same effectiveness.
