Welcome and thanks for your question.

Do you have a picture of the pill you could post?

Customer reply replied 5 years ago

I do not have a picture of the pill but it looks like a regular white Xanax bar except it has the extended release marking that usually goes on a yellow Xanax bar. Its simply a white Xanax bar that is marked R039 on one side and scores on the other side.

Health Professional: A. Schuyler, NP, Nurse Practitioner replied 5 years ago

R039/P039 is the typical marking on a Xanax 2 mg from Actavis. No reputable generic producer is making them in white. I would toss the ones you have rather than chance a bad reaction.

There are fake makers in Pakistan and India that put gosh knows what in pills and sell them to unsuspecting people. The R039/P039 is only used by Actavis and their alprazolam is yellow, not white.

All the best.

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
