Zopax & Xanor
Good day CyberDoc
The question is ... what are the differences between Xanor and Zopax .. i think both contain Alprazolam or possibly are Alprazolam ?? Is one just a generic for the the other? Ive used both for anxiety but find Zopax (1 mg tablet) makes me incredibly tired .. whilst the Xanor (1mg tablet) dosage does indeed help but doesnt have the drowsy side-effect.
Many thanks for all your help in the past.

Robert, Zopax® is the generic of Xanor® and both contain only alprazolam. It might be that the Xanor® you’re taking is a slow release form whereas the Zopax® isn’t (no generic slow-release formulation is available in SA). The best would be to stick to the original even if it is a little more expensive. Good luck.
