What Is Counterfeit Xanax?

Xanax, also known as Alprazolam, is a prescription drug which is most commonly used to treat anxiety. Doctors prescribe the drug when they believe that a patient can benefit from it. When Alprazolam is used correctly, it is relatively safe. However, fake Xanax is not safe at all. Moreover, it has been manufactured to seem similar to the original. People buy fake yellow Xanax Bars, fake green Xanax bars, fake white Xanax bars, and other types of fake Alprazolam on the street because it can be easier and cheaper to obtain.

The reason why fake Alprazolam is so dangerous is that it often contains an ingredient called Fentanyl. Fentanyl is an opioid which is 50 times stronger than heroin and 100 times stronger than morphine. So, when people take fake Alprazolam laced with Fentanyl, it can cause overdoses easily. There are many types of fake Xanax bars including fake Xanax bars g3722, fake Xanax bars gg249, fake Xanax 2mg, and r039 Xanax fake.

Signs of taking a fake counterfeit Alprazolam bar include:

  • Woman overdosing from counterfeit Xanax pillsLimp body
  • Labored, shallow, or difficulty breathing
  • Vomiting
  • Lips, fingers, or face turning blue
  • Clammy skin
  • Pinpoint pupils
  • Convulsions
  • Death rattle (labored exhale that may resemble snoring)

The Effects and the Dangers of Fentanyl Use

Fentanyl is a hazardous opioid drug. As little as two milligrams is a lethal dose for the average person. People who use Fentanyl can experience all of the following issues:

  • Fatal overdose
  • Respiratory depression
  • Respiratory arrest
  • Coma
  • Unconsciousness
  • Convulsions
  • Vomiting
Fentanyl use deaths are widespread because the drug is so powerful and is so frequently used to lace street drugs. This is why fake Xanax dangers are genuine. Fake Xanax effects do not always include death, but they frequently do. Counterfeit Xanax bars cause other side effects too that can result in permanent damage. Essentially, Fentanyl is an incredibly dangerous drug, and the fact that it is used in fake Alprazolam bars makes fake Alprazolam extremely dangerous as well. Fake Alprazolam should be avoided to prevent serious injury or death.

How to Avoid the Fake Xanax Bar?

A drug deal occurring on the street.

The best and most obvious way to avoid fake Xanax bars is only to take Xanax that has been prescribed by a physician, and that is purchased from a licensed pharmacy. If you buy anything on the street that is claimed to be Alprazolam, it could easily be a fake Xanax bar. This means that there is a perfect chance that it could be laced with Fentanyl and could potentially kill you.

There is no way to know with one hundred percent certainty that a drug bought on the street is real. So, when it comes to trying to purchase real vs. fake Xanax, the only way to do this is never buying drugs on the street. Even if you buy Alprazolam with a prescription, however, you can still develop a dangerous addiction. So, the best route to take is to avoid Xanax altogether if possible.

Final Thoughts

Many people buy Xanax on the street because it is inexpensive and it is a quick high effect. However, knockoff street drugs which are manufactured in secret and illicit labs can easily result in death. Anyone who wants to avoid being killed by a drug overdose should avoid taking fake Alprazolam, or anything that resembles it whatsoever. Street drugs can never be trusted, and they always come with high risks.

  • They are coming straight from the pharmacy fake. My wife gets prescription Xanax she got her script filled and about 2 to 3 days later she was in withdraw. She took a drug test and there was no Xanax in her system. Just because a doctor prescribed them don’t mean they are real. Just because you got them filled at a pharmacy don’t mean they are real.

    • Contact an attorney immediately and take the Pharmacist to the cleaners. Unless…well, Were you actually there with her while she was at the Pharmacy getting her RX filled or did she bring it home and tell you that’s where she got them? Secondly, did you literally watch her consume what came from the RX bottle or she only told you what she had taken and when? -Not trying to be a jerk, sorry, many variables change the cause and result in vary different effects in conclusion. It’s more often than not when you trust someone close to you, it’s hard to imagine the extent of coverups and how far they’d go to hide their addictions from you, bc they’re afraid of your judgement and consiquences if their truths be told. If circumstances seem like it’s totally crazy to actually be happening… It most likely is. Unless her Pharmacist is an illegal alien and is buying his stock from the Cartels, the chance that a legit business run by a Professional person who wants to keep their licenses and life, THAT would NOT happen. At least not in any country I’ve visited or worked in… So DO look at the Bigger Picture and Question everyone involved that does not have a University Degree to handle Medicines. -this is coming from someone who has multiple degrees and a decade invested in Patient Sociology and Medicine. I’ve seen and heard enough to know when a Story isn’t entirely truthful. Good Luck.

    • That is so true I was in the military I’ve been on them for over 14 years and now nothing I have panic attacks with drawers I freaked out at work I tried to tell my doctor but then they say it’s in my head so I went to a different phone ceutical company I went to Walgreens and they have the green ones and they work way better and also the round ones work way better because I’m on a 2mg all

    • Hey the guy who responded to ur message has a good point BUT I have heard on the news the exact thing that happened to ur wife does indeed happen. Prof people do bad things too as well any one of the techs working. I also don’t doubt ur story because a somewhat similar incident happened to me. Good luck figuring it all out

      • Thank you for saying this. Frankly the fact that 2 people up there are willing to not give his wife the benefit of the doubt is a big reason why people still need help or never get help. If all you do is treat people like liars and junkies, it is no wonder they hide themselves. I can understand families, but not doctors. They need to start doing more listening. That doesn’t mean prescribe by any means, it just means HELP. That’s what you’re there for, not to play jury.
        If more doctors did this, I would have more loved ones alive.

  • I am prescribed 1mg Xanax 3x per day. I ran out 2 days early and got 2 green bars; the S 903; and they have different taste than most other legit Xanax I have had. They are bitter and look dead on like a real S903, but I didn’t notice decrease in my anxiety, and that strange taste has me wondering. If they are fakes, someone did a good job. Consistent color throughout the tablet, slightly shiny coating. But powdery and taste takes a few seconds to notice, which is a slightly different taste than any other Alprazolam I have had, and at 50 years old with 27 years of daily use, I have tried them all. If anyone can offer any info that could correctly ID these S903’s, I would greatly appreciate it. I don’t want the person who gave me the pills to get into a mess with people he may sell them to. He would not knowingly sell fakes. Thanks, nomad♪

  • The ONLY way to yell real vs fake re: xanax bars is the taste. That bitter, grapefruit ish taste. I’ve been prescribed 4 bars a day for 21 years and I know the taste well. Lick them bite them whatever you have to do before you buy and consume. Stay safe i almost died off a fake bar 12 years ago. Also if theyre super thick.. sometimes you can tell just by looking. Stay safe!

  • I too am having trouble getting the right Green S 90 3’s. I have 3 light green ones, two that are not to light in color and three DARK green ones. All from the streets but I need them and my insurance will not cover. long story. I do not take them daily I take them when I really need them. But instead of just throwing all these away I would like to know which ones are real and which ones are fake plz.

  • I don’t understand why someone would put fentanyl into making a xanax bar.? I always thought fentanyl was a very strong expensive drug. I don’t know much about fentanyl and dont buy or do xanax. But I have read that people have laced other products to. And just thought why if fentanyl supposedly is so addictive why would they waste it mixed pills or kratom? Please explain thx

  • If you are taking subutex on a daily basis and take a full green zanax bar would it still cause you to overdose?

    • It definitely could. Xanax mixed with buprenorphine I have heard from multiple doctors is the deadliest combination. Both are respiratory depressants. I’m prescribed subutex and klonopin. I had one doc change me from klonopin to Xanax and I didn’t like it. Definitely more of a euphoric feeling, but didn’t help my anxiety like klonopin. Went to new doc and he couldn’t believe or understand why the other doc switched me. Too many doctors that don’t really know about buprenorphine prescribing it these days. When I first started taking it years ago (for chronic pain, never been an addict), it was hard to find docs that were able to prescribe it. Then they started popping up everywhere. This whole opioid epidemic is destroying our country. It’s sad that pharmaceutical companies and doctors are banking off this. Buprenorphine should be first for truly chronic pain. You plateau after a certain amount & if that’s all you’re taking it’s nearly impossible to overdose. But hey, why would they do that when they can prescribe roxies & morphine and get you so addicted that you’re willing to do heroin because it’s easier to get and cheaper, then they can switch you over to Suboxone/Subutex which is very expensive.. makes sense. As long as the Big Pharma & Big Brother have the money at the end of the day.. if someone overdoses, one less “junkie” in their eyes. God bless America!

  • The pharmacy usually gives me yellow or green 2mg Xanax (alprozalam)but this time I got blue ones ?!? Anyone seen those before? It’s 2mg Bars .

  • I bought 20 of the green s 90 3 ‘s on the street. I knew right away they were fake because of the taste the real ones do not have a bad taste to them. These had a very strong pill taste to them. Almost like a soma. So if they taste really bad they are bad. Please learn from my stupidity.

    • My fried gets prescribed Xanax bars and has told me that the ones before have a bitter taste while these have no taste at all could that be fake or normal green bars s 903 but little to no effect

  • I recently bought the 2 MG. Xanax bars. They tasted like chalk and talcum powder. They looked like the real ones but, after researching them. I found out they are fake! Also, a lot of other bars being pressed that are fake the G 3722. I don’t know what I am going to do because I can’t find a Dr. and I have been on them since 1990!
