What is the manufacturer of the lorazepam with a "v"?
Post a Reply
I've been taking the form of lorazepam identified by a "v" on one side and "4008" on the other for years. Recently I switched pharmacies and they gave me a NOTICEABLY different version, manufactured by "Watson labs" ("Watson" on one side and "1/241" on the other). I might as well be taking placebos even though it's the same dosage. My doctor told me that manufacturers can vary in the make-up of the pill by almost 2% and still legally call it the same dosage/drug, so what I'm feeling (nothing) may really be due to the difference in manufacturer. I want to go to my new pharmacy & ask if they can fill my prescription with the pills from this other manufacturer, but I don't know who manufactures it. I suppose I can just bring one o...

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!

Does this 2 mg lorazepam manufactured by Watson and the same pill manufactured by Qualitest have the same inactive ingredients? ## I was put on the qualitest(so)? brand and after I've been on Watson for years - the Qualitest is a placebo to me. it does NOT work for me. my pharmacist at Rite- aid said they're all the same and I said no they're not and he said that they can't order Watson when they want anymore due to some bogus reason. I think he's lying. I am willing to call the new company of who makes watson and ask them if that's true or not and if I can get a list of chain pharmacies carry Watson - as their main brand and switch pharmacies. why bother fighting with somebody who obviously hasn't been on anxiety medication but yes there is a difference in a...

small round white pill with fancy v on one side & 4007
1 Reply RSS
In my bottle of pills (misc) I found a couple that had a fancy "v" on one side, & the #s 4007 on the other side. The pills are quite small, round, & white ## Hello, Matt! How are you? This tablet is manufactured by Qualitest Pharmaceuticals and they list it as containing 0.5mgs of Lorazepam, which is a benzodiazepine that's most commonly used to treat anxiety and nervous disorders. The FDA warns that it 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?

what it she shelf life of Lorazepam..if its 4 years old ?
1 Reply RSS
Experitation of old script med over 4 years in the medicine chest?? ## It doesn't become dangerous, once expired, but it does start to lose effectiveness. If it is in a bottle as dispensed from you pharmacy, it would have expired a year from the date it was dispensed. 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. If it's that old, it would be best to dispose of it and obtain a new supply, if you still need this medication. Is there anything else I can help with?

Lori 2 Lorazepam
10 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...
