I would not anticipate problems, but rather give it a try and see how you do. I personally like the TEVA generic clonazepam. There are people who absolutely have no problems switching between the generic brands of clonazepam or any other benzodiazepine. There are people who get withdrawal symptoms by changing to a different generic. For example, I cannot tolerate clonazepam by Accord. I made the switch from TEVA to Actavis without a problem and am hoping that switching back to my preferred brand (TEVA) will not be a problem. I wish you all the best.

Re: Lorry (# 2) Expand Referenced Message

I was on 1mg/day of Teva clonazepam for 10 years and recently switched back to it after a year of Actavis clonazepam and I’m having severe withdrawal symptoms. Really frustrating because I was perfectly fine with Teva before and was irate when they switched to Actavis. Granted, my dose is half what it was but I adjusted to the Actavis and was fine at .5mg/day. Now I’m having paradoxical symptoms with the Teva (nervousness, brain fog, physical withdrawals). Will I eventually adjust back to the Teva? God I hope so..

Hi Mark! I have been on old TEva for almost 20 years and just got new TEva and have been on it for 1 week. I’m having brain fog too and it’s driving me crazy! How are you adjusting? Everyone is telling me to give it 2 weeks to 1month to adjust. Is your brain fog better?

Re: Mark Robinson (# 3) Expand Referenced Message

I was on original Teva 1mg Clonazepam and did very well, switched to Actavis when original Teva was discontinued and did ok. Just got the new Teva Clonazepam 1mg - green tablet (not scored like the original) and 833 on the back. Have been having problems being overly sleepy, heart arrhythmia worse, blood pressure higher, feeling dizzy and faint. I have been one it about 1 month still having problems.

Re: Sheri Scott (# 5) Expand Referenced Message

Hi Sheri-I’m sorry you’re having those symptoms after a month! It’s been about 3 weeks for me on new Teva and I definitely feel they are not as strong (1mg) as the old ones. I sleep very well but then have a lot of energy during the day and butterflies in my stomach (more anxiety). They are not awful but not as good as they were for sure. I used Par brand orally disintegrating tablets and they were great for my anxiety but bad for my memory and made me sleepy. Maybe try the brand name? Nothing is made well anymore—it’s terrible and I’m sorry you’re feeling this way. Are you on 1mg or .5?
