I ordered Valium 10mg that was blue and had Roche 10 on one side and a scored line on the other. I would like to find out if these pills are fake or legit?

That pill would be almost as old as I am! For quite a while, Roche Valium was inscribed as described. I think I had just completed one of my residencies when they started using the "cut out" V — 1980-something. Given that we
re talking about probably a good 20 years since Roche produced that type of tablet, it's undoubtedly a counterfeit. A Valium tablet manufactured in the 1980s would have to be hermetically sealed or quick-frozen not to crumble in the intervening years!)

yes Dr. Rosey is correct, the last poster. The last time I saw a USA produced Valium round tablet without the cut out V was the year's 1980 and 1981. (with Roche 10 on the ten mg tablet, also the Roche 5 and Roche 2 mg tablets). In 1963 thru the middle 1970's Roche were still solid, but with the tablet, embossed Roche 4 (2 mg) white, Roche 5 (5 mg) yellow, Roche 6 (blue 10 mg.) I grew up taking Roche Valium since the year 1971 at age 21 years old in the USA, when Roche was a Schedule VI, with PRN, unlimited refills, until, the DEA changed the class to a Schedule IV, in July of 1975 (limiting the refills to a 6 month period).


However, the V Cut tablet by Roche is only made for the USA in the past nearly 30 years. The many other countries, at least forty ethical pharmaceutical Roche Valium in many other countries and continents, are simply marked Roche 10 for the blue 10 mg tabs.

Beware as was earlier noted. If the blister pack, does not have a holigram by Roche Labs, IMHO, the liklihood................increases...but not foolproof........
of a counterfeit Roche Valium runs at least 50% minimum or more, due to mass proliferation of many
counterfeiters, thus, no effect from the counterfeit tabs.
This appears to have happened mostly since around the year 2004, and forward, almost 10 years ago.
Even the holiogram blister packs are not foolproof, as far as the country of Mexico is concerned. The counterfeiters in Mexico have hundreds of millions of dollars thru organized crime in the cartel to dupe some buyers/tourists in Latin America. I know from the school of hard knox (2008) and in person 2012 in Los Cabo's, (Cabo San Lucas, Mexico) with even crooked pharmacists. Sorry, yet the real ones still exist even in that country, I found them, at great expense!

Still, just my 2 cents worth, I would be double skeptical of using any Roche Valium without, the
holiogram, that Roche has began implementing, worldwide due to mass counterfeiting...............
Also, Gador Pharmaceutical are alleged to start
the same holiogram that flikers with the sunlight, to
spoof the counterfeiters in Argentina, and Uruguay, and Paraguay, in South America. Not sure about Roche Valium from over 3 dozen other countries spanning the entire globe, from South Africa, to Europe, to Asia, to the South Pacific. IMHO most
foreign Valium purchased over the internet from over 600 internet websites are counterfeit, or one is not getting what they are paying for with Roche Valium, especially Pakistan to the Philipines, to Western Europe. Just my 2 cents worth. Get it from a local pharmacy with a local M.D.'s prescription, from the country one is actually in, and, filled in a bottle in that same country from the pharmacy, pharmacia, or apothecary..........formerly traveled as airline employee
