This is Dr. David

yes, it is the same alprazolam used for dogs and humans.

veterinarians can give alprazolam to you or they can write prescriptions for your drugs which can also be filled at human pharmacies.

but you should not take these alprazolam which are prescribed for your dog.

let me know if you have questions.
