I have been in xanax and Zoloft for 15 for anxiety disorder and depression. At it's worst I was having  3 to 5 panic attacks daily. My primary physician and I , trying multiple combinations and numerous trips to the ER thinking I was having a heart attack, we found that 1 mg of Xanax extended release and 100 mg of Zoloft worked really well. For the past 5 years I have been doing great, no panic attacks and feeling great. About 3 years ago my Cvs pharmacy switched me to a generic from a company Greenstone, I was worried at first but they turned out to work just as well and life went on panic free. 2 months ago Cvs informed me they would no longer be carrying Greenstone alprazolam and were also switching my Zoloft to a manufacturer out of India by the name of Aurobindo. Having gone through a switch once before with no ill effects I didn't think to much about it. Well as the first few weeks went by I started noticing my anxiety increasing, getting bad headaches, difficulty concentrating at work. After talking to the pharmacist about this when getting refills for the second month on these new pills he dismissed as just" getting used to the new meds. 2 weeks into this .2nd month and I'm in ???$*. Panic attacks have come back with a vengeance several times a day, headaches are unbearable, drenching night sweats and a total inability to concentrate. I'm going to my primary tomm. To see if I can go back to what I was taking. Stay way from Aurobindo products!!  I can't believe this happened to me. They should be shut down.

Hope this never happens to anyone else.. Johnnie

Switcheroos

I agree with you Goat. I have almost zero allergic reactions except for Watsons adhesive. Rash metropolis and no doubt about it. I finally had to switch pharmacies to find one that carried the Mylan matrix type.
Johnnie, is it feasible for you to switch? Your script is for Class IV meds so I would think that it would be easy enough. As an 18 year prescribed user of Xanax/Alprazolam for anxiety and sleep issues I have nothing but good to say about the med . . . Good luck on your quest, Q

got me a new script today of

got me a new script today of the Geenstone 1 mg ER..So relieved had such a bad day at work today, so hard to concentrate, feeling so anxious , severe headache  and so just not with it. solid rfeminders of how I used yo live my days before seeking ???$* from my dotor I read so much information last night on the internet in regard to

these manufacturers in India. It's unbelievable with the evidence of horrific sanitary conditions, the complete absence of a method to ensure the amount of actual drug in these pills campared to amount of fillers and binders.! I tild my pharmacist the story of what and about the countless others I found on the internet about AURUBINDO products. My worry now is the zoloft was switched to an India manufactured pill as well. How long should I wait after getting back on the right Xanax and still feel like &??$ should I switch up the previous generic Zoloft.

thanks to all who responded!!!!

Indian generics

I had to resort to the Indian manufactured Cymbalta (Duloxetine) due to price,and I had zero probs with it. I hope you have the same luck with their Zoloft . . . Q

US generic alprazolam

I live in the UK, and have tried more than a few US-made makes of alprazolam. To be honest, the quality of these is generally so bad that I am quite sure nobody here would touch them at all. The ONLY one that comes even close to the quality of Xanax, Alplax and Ksalol is the GREENSTONE. Apparently the most dispensed alprazolam in the US is that made by Sandoz US - 1mg GG248, 2mg GG249. These are probably the worst alps I have EVER had and even Pakistani made alprazolam is preferable. They are almost completely ineffective at prescribed dosage and to equal the efficacy of the brands I use I required 5mg of the Sandoz, and even then something about them was not quite right.
The Greenstone 2mg G3722 was good and did what was required of it at the normal 2mg dose. Mylan US, Purepac/Actavis and others were all bunk. Why can such a huge country with so many pharmaceutical companies only come up with a single worthwhile generic alprazolam? That is some mystery...

I have had no complaints

 No complaints from me on PurePak.   They rave a cursive r imprint. very bitter....slighty soft at times......so take care carrying them in your pocket.



     Of course greenstone is first choice.
