Continue taking Xanax for as long as your doctor recommends and always see your doctor before you stop taking it.

If you are not sure what to do, ask your doctor or pharmacist.

    I have been taking xanax for at least four years now and i have occationaly heard of 3mg bars but have yet to find them are they real or a myth and if real how hard would it be to get them perscribed to you?

    They are usually triangles and white, although it is quite possible that they could come in bars.
