Was this letter in the form of an email, with the information provided following a long list of other email addresses?

Just wondering.

Xanax isn’t going anywhere.

There are generic versions of Xanax so even if the original producer stops making it, Xanax isn’t going anywhere.

Oh I hope so. Xanax addictions is one of the most annoying things I have to deal with.

Benzodiazepines will never be taken off the market. They are way too addictive and bring in so much money to the drug companies that nope ; it’ll never happen. It would be like beer being illegal !

This rumor is being asked about on any number of Q&A sites. I have to wonder if there is some kind of disinformation campaign going on, perhaps run by a competitor.

@Flavio: Yeah, because most Xanax users are addicts, not patients who require it.~

@asmonet xanax is absolutely replaceable with a bunch of other benzodiazepines. it is not an indispensable medication, although of all the benzos it is the one with the worst abuse profile.
