mylan lorazepam good

Is there anyone out there who is had a good or a bad experience with mine when I was told that my own was a very good generic for the lorazepam 1 mg as opposed to Watson and the worst being Sandos ## Hello, Andy! How are you? I took the one manufactured by Mylan a few years ago and it worked well for me. The FDA warns that this medication carries the risk of being habit forming and could cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache and irritability. Is there anything else I can help with?

Been on Sandoz mfr. lorazepam for 10 years; no problems; no need to increase dose. Sandoz stopped mfr. Now, can only get these generic's & Actavis. Having lots of troubles getting results; either nothing or zonked. Anyone else w/any experience which mfr. is closer to Sandoz (since FDA approves up to 2% differences in generics). Thank you. ## Hello! I have been getting 90 days supplies of Lorazepam 1MG from SANDOZ....my new Rx just came and it's from ACTAVIS.....it does not work or relieve any anxiety at all....I might as well take a placebo...it does not work at all....I took 2 pills...nothing and then 1hour later took 2 more....before with the other brand...I would probably be asleep....but,nothing with this new brand.....I do not know what to do about this....... ## I have...

Sandoz Ativan
121 Replies RSS
I switched pharmacies and was given Sandoz Ativan, I have been having a terrible time- it is like it is creating more anxiety. I switched back to my old pharmacy and am counting the days until I get back to the Milan manufacturer. It has been a horrid 2 weeks. Melatonin helps a great deal with sleep. I started off with Milan and had been on that for 2 years with no problems, I wonder if your body resists another generic brand and you have to adjust. All I know if Milan is what I need and I always get the same manufacturers for all my meds since 12 years ago from CVS- they are very consistent. Be very careful if you switch pharmacies, I learned that all generics are NOT THE SAME. ## Just found this out: Purepac/Activis was bought out by Watson in 2012. In October the FTC made Watson/Pure...

tiny white round pill scored on one side no markings on other side
2 Replies RSS
was told it is 1 mg lorazepam but cant find anyy information online supporting this.... can someone please help? ## If there are no markings, we can completely rule it out as being a U.S. manufactured prescription medication. They are all required to have markings to enable their identification. With no markings and based on your description, the greatest likelihood is that it is an over the counter product, however, there is also a small chance that it could be a foreign medication. Where was it found/obtained? ## I can confirm that a pill meeting this description is available in Australia, with the contents described.

Substitute for ranbaxy lorazepam
5 Replies RSS
I have been taking Ranbaxy Lorazapam for more than 10 years. Now that is no longer available I have tried Watson & Qualitest manufacturers. I am having severe muscle tightening, headaches and loud ringing in my ears. Can someone please suggest something similar to the Ranbaxy? Even if it is another similar generic drug? Clearly there is something different in the other manufacturers generic lorazapam that is causing so many problems. ## Hello, Patti! How are you? I'm sorry about the problems that you're having. The best thing to do may be to ask your doctor to write the prescription as 'brand medically necessary', if your insurance will cover it and try that, so you can avoid the generics. This medication carries the risk of being habit forming and could cause side e...

Lori 2 Lorazepam
18 Replies RSS
Has anybody taken this medicine which is a generic for Ativan manufactured in India? ## The drug brand named Lori (2 mg) is said to be manufactured by Cyril Pharmaceuticals. Just to clear up any confusion, it's not a generic for Ativan; just another brand name. Ativan is also a brand name. Lorazepam is the generic name. I personally haven't tried this brand, but others here on the site have mentioned that it is very weak in comparison to the US counterpart. There's nothing inherently wrong with purchasing meds from India, but from the reviews I've read, many people are complaining about the potency and overall efficacy not being up to par with US drugs. Would you agree with that? You can learn more about this drug on the page for Lorazepam Details I hope this helps! ## I...

Is lorazepam the same as xyanx ## Hello, Shorty! How are you? Lorazepam is the generic for Ativan, Alprazolam is the generic for Xanax. They are both benzodiazepines that are commonly used to treat anxiety and nervous disorders, but they are different medications. The FDA warns that they carry the risk of being habit forming and could cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache and irritability. Is there anything else I can help with?

Qualitest vs. Sandoz
1 Reply RSS
I changed pharmacies cause the pill police Rexall pharmacist in small town KS took it upon himself to make me come in twice a month for a 30 day script and even lied about it said the dr. prescribed em that way. Well when I switched to the Qualitest it seems they are not nearly as good. Can't sleep, I wake up 3 hours after going to bed and ache all day. Anyone else experience BAD QUALITY WITH QUALITEST? ## Hello, Tom! How are you? You aren't the first person to have a problem with their products, but it does vary, they work great for some people. There can be variations in the amount of the active ingredient from one generic to another, so it may be slightly lower than the one you were taking, which could explain why it doesn't work for you.

Small, white, oblong (rather than oval) pill scored and imprinted with I N or N I on one side - I am in Canada, in case that makes a difference in the appearance. ## white, oblong (rectangular with edges rounded) pill, scored in the middle, and imprinted on one side with and I and N (or N and I) - Canadian - trying to identify ## Oh, here's the post. This gentleman reached me by email. None of my searches have turned up anything for this. This does seem to be Canadian in origin, but I have yet to make a positive I.D.
