> I sure can. When on xanax I was paying for brandname until a pharmacist told me Greenstone generic is really the manufacturer of the real xanax. Ask your pharmacist to order it for you it's generic , identical in looks to the real thing, same bitter taste, and works the same, and is scored. Love Phillipa

Thanks, Jan. I am outraged that drug companies can do this with generics - 20% difference allowed? That means you can go into withdrawal or have a higher dose in your system.

Benzo tapering is supposed to be only 10% at a time. With the current generics being 20% difference either way, how can you possibly know by how much you are tapering the drug?

I will ask my pdoc to order only Greenstone and if my pharmacy won't get it I'll go elsewhere.
Love,
Val
