Xanax Street Names
Alprazolam, more widely known on the streets by the brand name of Xanax, is a benzodiazepine that is widely prescribed for the treatment of anxiety disorders and panic attacks. The growing trend toward prescription drug abuse has given way to a new need for parents and caretakers alike to recognize the many street names that each drug maybe openly described as—education and knowledge is key to prevention.
Xanax Street Names Based on Shape
Xanax street names most often are related to either the brand name of the drug itself or the shape or dosage of the drug. For instance, when a 2 milligram dose of the drug is sought, the user will often refer to “bars” or “z-bars” describing the long and slender shape of the 2 milligram Xanax. When a half or 1 milligram dose is sought, the user will often refer to the term “footballs” referring to the oval shaped .5 and 1 milligram doses. Along this same path of terminology, some ask for “triangles,” referring to the 3 milligram time release Xanax that is available in a green, triangular shape.
Alprazolam Street Names Based on Color
Colors are often used to describe the drug as well. “Yellow boys” or “White boys” are two commonly used terms that describe Xanax or alprazolam. The term “White girls” may also be used interchangeably with “white boys” depending on the user. Generally, men refer to them as “White girls” and women the opposite.
