Putting aside theoretical bio-availability and bio-equivalent standards etc. Are all the subjective reports of alprazolam
differences based on alprazolam obtained directly form the pharmacy in the United States? Swim
is just wondering because if swiy get alprazolam from, a friend of a friend, you do not know if it really came from a pharmacy, therefore it could be counterfeit. Perhaps, it does contain alprazolam, but it is actually a well done fake made to look like a commonly known brand and it was imported from some medical lab in another country. On a separate note, alprazolam in the united states commonly available on the black market is often obtained from Mexico, or other countries.
Further, swim thinks that the placebo effect could account for the vast majority of any sort of subjective differences in 1mg tablet of x brand versus 1mg tablet of y brand. This is not to totally discount the bio-avaliablity theory but until their is some double blind studies done....swim is extremely skeptical.
There just seems to be so many factors that are constantly changing that could account for a subjective differences in strength from brand to brand. Tolerance, weight, setting, other medications or drugs
consumed, stress level, mental level, age, weight.
