Yes, Iindeed it is, and a very well-known generic by Hungary's oldest pharmaceutical company as well, though seeing that the blister is printed in Romanian ('comprimate' = 'tablets') I would imagine made in Richter's Romanian factory. Excellent quality and very inexpensive.

Gedeon Richter's Eunoctin (nitrazepam), Prazolex (alprazolam) & Dolforin (fentanyl patches, I hope still the reservoir type rather than the matrix patches) as well as this diazepam,  are some of the best selling medicines in Central Europe and extremely commonly sold by International Online Pharmacies.

I have no idea why the question was even asked when a simple Google would have revealed the required information. 

Egis (makers of the superb FRONTIN, preferred to Pfizer XANAX by many 1mg and 0.5mg alprazolam users), also have a factory in Romania as well as their native Hungary. I count myself amongst those who think Frontin a much better alprazolam brand than the original Pfizer/Upjohn product.

However I am certain that the image poster very quickly answered his/her own question simply by taking 10 or 20mg of the tablets they uploaded to the image gallery!

Alprazolam 2mg

Should have added, as my alprazolam dosage is 2mg tds, that the best brands of that strength are Pfizer XANOR made in South Africa, for some weird reason a HELLUVA lot more effective/potent than the same tablet made anywhere else, as many of you will know if you use ceratain IOPs for your requirements (also branded XANAX & TAFIL dependent on  country, but still the same 'U94' bars), ALPLAX (Gador, SA, Argentina), generic Alprazolam Denver Farma (also Argentina) & the only generic US alprazolam which is remotely acceptable to Europeans (Americans sadly being used to some of the poorest made anywhere, even Pakistan!) GREENSTONE G3722.

Worst - any Asian alprazolam,  Sandoz USA G249, Mylan USA A4, almost every other US generic.

PS I have tried several generics from the States which have been described to me as being the best and found every one to be totally unacceptable to me. Bar the one I mentioned which, coincidentally, is made in the same factory as branded Xanax, Greenstone being a Pfizer-owned make... the US Sandoz bars are also the most counterfeited alprazolam 2mg bars in the world, originating mainly in Pakistan and China. (Copy punch dies are sold for the counterfeiters' favourite tablet press, the TDP-6.)

I have been

been taking the Dava brand for maybe 2 years and I have no complaints. I am thinking of asking to be switched to valium as I have been taking alprazolam for close to 20 years. I am unsure of the dr.s response. I dont want increased i just want to try something different. I have taken it in the past.

Hey Willy Goat,You refer to

Hey Willy Goat,

You refer to the oddly biscored (0.66666mg/section) GREEN bars?

I have in fact heard recently that those (are they embossed 'S90?') aren't too bad, but still a bit weak compared with Xanax/Alplax/Greenstone.
