I've been taking Xanax XR 1 mg for the last 6 months or so. I was paying $40 for a month's supply. Today when I went to pick up my prescription and it was only $15. I thought hmmm, they must have gave me the generic instant relase ones. But when I opened the bottled it said alprozalam ER (substituted for Xanax XR 1 mg) was listed below, made by Mylan. I was under the impression that Xanax XR was only brand name, did this just come out? How effective is it?
I just went to Mylan's website, who makes the generic xanax. Apparently this just came out in late January. Any other info would be great though, we'll see how they are tomorrow.
I got some samples of this stuff from my doc several months ago. I've never taken Xanax XR so I can't tell you how it compares, but I don't like it quite as well as regular Xanax.
