The field ionization of strongly magnetized antihydrogen was studied. Internal orbits of the antihydrogen atoms were observed to depend equally on external magnetic fields and Coloumb forces. A circular guiding center atom was used to further analyze their field ionization. A conserved pseudomomentum, effective potential, saddle point analysis, and numerical simulation were used to show the validity of the model in different applications.
