My question is this: I came across the photo of the above Sandoz 2mg alprazolam bar with 'GG 249' embossed HORIZONTALLY, yet I first was sent some of this generic alp way back around 2002, and occasionally since then as well (the quality and potency of the make, incidentally, is very poor indeed, and I suspect that they simply wouod not be acceptable to European consumers - yet I read that this is the most-dispensed alprazolam Iin the USA!), and the imprint has ALWAYS been as in the other photo, ie VERTICAL.
 
Are the strange ones which read across the bar rather than downwards actually REAL or are they some sort of counterfeits?
Has anybody been dispensed those? Or are they so old that somebody who first saw the American Sandoz generic 15 years ago is unlikely to have ever seen the horizontally-embossed form of tablet?

Image sources

The images I used were, unusually, not taken by myself (Sandoz USA alprazolam being of far too low quality for me to ever have any reason to have it in my possession - only XANAX and GREENSTONE generic are up to the expectations of European alprazolam users; I have had no others - well, Qualitest V2090 weren't TOO bad - which I found acceptable in the least, and Mylan 'A4' must qualify as the worst on the planet, even poorer than some I have tested which originated in Pakistan!
