Knowing what the physical characteristics are when you purchase Xanax, whether in your neighborhood pharmacy or even online, will help you ensure that you have the proper medication. Ordering on the internet especially comes with a few risks as you may purchase Xanax but end up with a different drug all together. This could a potentially dangerous problem. Here are a few guidelines to ensure that you have the right drug:
1. Xanax in the .25 mg tablet form is typically a small white oval shaped pill with a score mark in the middle. Make sure when you purchase Xanax in this milligram dosage that it has the “Xanax 0.25” imprint on the pill.
2. When you purchase Xanax in the 0.5 mg tablet, this particular dosage is a different color. Ensure that it is an oval shape with an orangy-peach color and includes a score mark in the middle. Imprinted on the tablet should be “Xanax 0.5.”
3. An oval shaped pill with a scored middle marks the basic characteristics of the Xanax 1 mg tablet. Be sure when you purchase Xanax of this dosage that has the imprint “Xanax 1.0” on it.
4. The 2mg tablet of Xanax is an oblong-shaped bar with several score marks on it. When you purchase this particular Xanax dosage, look for the imprint of “Xanax” as well as the number “2” on it.
Keep in mind with you purchase Xanax, under the Xanax brand, the characteristics listed above are most representative of the brand. However, Xanax can also be found under the name Niravam, Alprazolam and could potentially have some generic formulations. It will depend on what your insurance company will pay for as to whether you purchase Xanax or an equally suitable generic substitution.
If you are unsure whether your Xanax purchase is actually the right drug, ask your pharmacist for guidance. You could have either the generic substitution or another drug altogether.
