WV Substance Abuse Network Advisory WV 004 June 20 2016

There have been reports of counterfeit Xanax tablets (described as Xanax bars labeled as 2 mg strength) in the United States (Florida, Illinois, Ohio, and others). Although the tablets look like brand name Xanax tablets, they have been documented as containing fentanyl; a synthetic opioid stated to be 50 times more potent than heroin. The counterfeit tablets are thinner in appearance; however, one would have to be familiar with the actual tablets to notice the difference. Xanax is a brand name for alprazolam, a benzodiazepine drug with sedating and anti-anxiety properties. Xanax is a scheduled drug, C-IV.
