However, it is not a first line treatment since the development of selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors. Alprazolam is no longer recommended in Australia for the treatment of panic disorder due to concerns regarding tolerance, dependence, and abuse. Most evidence shows that the benefits of alprazolam in treating panic disorder last only 4 to 10 weeks.

I have tsken both and the generic no matter what generic name it is aleays the same tesult... The name brand xanax is the best drug for my extreme anxiety and panic disorder from which I suffered from along with PTSD,since my recovery efforts in the 9/11 terrists attacks in 2001. My research on this is yes there is the equal amount of the drug but the added stuff is very different. The generic stuff is bs and lacks in effectiveness. Generic is no different that name brand other than the price. That said the generic is inferior to the name brand. name brand xanax for 120 tabs $700 bucks, Generic is $43.00. I'm a disabled veteran, I'm on a lot of meds. Iv'e had a difficult time adjusting afterwards. This was because at the time I could afford the name brand. The generic has different fillers by different companys. However, I notice the difference between generic and name brand xanax is there anyone that has this problem? My prescriptions every month cost me less than 30$ the only reason I pay anything is because I live 215miles from any VA facility, if I had no insurance my perceptions would be in excess of 4500$ a month. Since my insurance will cover the name brand;however my doc... The Xanax company dosen't change their fillers and potentcy. Generic or Name brand, without having served 23 years in the Navy I would have died years ago. So no there is virtually no difference between Generic and name brand. Don't get ripped off any further by these Greedy Big Pharm. Insist on Generic and do yourself a favor and save some hard earned cash. If you are going to not shop around for a real pharmacy ( meaning other than commercial) it will indeed pay off.
