My 89 year old Mom has been on Clonazepam for years for sleep. The Actavis seems to work better for her than even the brand name Klonopin. She has had great difficulty finding another comparable version ever since Teva bought Actavis. She has tried several other generics as well without success. Thank you.

Under the Hatch-Waxman Act of 1984, generics are allowed to differ from the name brand by as much as plus or minus 20% in the amount of the active ingredients. The problem, however, is that they don't have to measure against each other, which means one generic could be higher, or lower than another, and it could even contain more of the active ingredient than the name brand does. Thus, one might work better than another for some people that take them.

K, what are the markings on the ones you were taking?

The FDA warns that this medication carries the risk of being habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache, and irritability.

Re: K (# 1)

Hi, my pharmacy carried the Actavis brand of 0.5 mg Clonazepam for 6 years, and a year ago switched to the Sandoz brand, and just this past Saturday; my refill was filled with the Actavis again. They are kicking my butt. Every time I take one, they take effect very quickly and are working well, they are much stronger than the Sandoz ones. I'm very happy to have them back again. I use a small locally owned Mom and Pop pharmacy, they are wonderful. You might want to try to find an independently owned Mom and Pop shop, they might be much more willing to work with you and might order in the pink Actavis Clonazepam for you. You could also ask your doctor to write only Actavis brand on your script. Good luck and I hope you feel better.

Is Actavis brand, white 2mg klonopin, marked R35....being discontinued? If so, why? This was told to me by my pharmacist. They work better than any other brand. I also know of many other people who agree with me.

Re: K (# 1)

I’ve had the same problem. I am on 1 mg three times a day of Klonopin. About six months ago they started giving me blue tablets versus the yellow that I used to get. I didn’t feel the same and the anxiety started to take up and so did the feeling that I was going to have a seizure. I have both epilepsy, anticipatory and generalized anxiety disorder and Meniere’s disease which is a vertigo disorder. But I have labs done every other month. I have a cheek swab, a urine sample and lately I’ve been asking for back up blood work. It is not showing up in my labs. It hasn’t shown up in my labs for six months. Ever since I went or Switch to the blue ones. I talk to different pharmacies because they will not tell you what brand they carry by New York State law. So you have to actually bring in the prescription bottle. They told me there is no difference in generics and I must not be taking them or possibly selling them. I’m like, WTF. I’m like, I have epilepsy I need to take these. And I do not miss a dose. I mean I have missed a couple of doses but those have been by accident. But generally I never miss a single dose because I don’t want to have another tonic clinic seizure w/ cardiac arrest and not be able to drive. Or worse,die. I spoke with my provider and they switched me to the orally disintegrating tablets. Or ODT. These seem to help a little better. I will know in about two weeks for a show up in my labs or not. I am hoping they do. I do feel better but I do not feel as good as I did on The yellow generic tablets.

So please ask your doctor about switching you to the ODT until they get this figured out. Some doctors will believe you others will not. Same with Pharmacy’s. Thank God I use a family owned and private pharmacy and they actually believed me. It was the major chains like CVS and Wall greens and Rite Aid that did not. They told me that I was probably selling them or not taking them as directed. And in New York State you cannot call at the pharmacy and ask what brand they carry. That is illegal to do if it is a controlled substance. I have to actually bring the prescription into the pharmacist and show them that you take it before they will give you any information on which brand they carry. They will not tell you over the phone. I drove around for a week to different pharmacies and everyone carried the blue ones. Which are all made by Accord / Solco !

Let me know how you make out. I’m interested to find out what other people are doing so that that way they can be properly medicated and do not have huge medical setbacks. This is a necessary medication for many people. I do take of her seizure meds as well. But whenever they have taken me off the Klonopin, within six months of being off , I would have another big one. Or a big seizure I mean. So the Clonopin is necessary to my seizure protocol. The other seizure meds alone do not do the trick. I need to have the Clonopin along with them.

Please let me know how you make out. I would be interested to know. And I wish you the very very best.

Re: Rob (# 4)

My yellow ones. 1 mg, yellow also have the r marking with a double digit #. They are made by activis. And just so you know my sister got her script which she takes For severe anxiety. I take mine for epilepsy and Meniere’s disease.

She recently got the original Teva’s filled at CVS. But they are doing a solo of the original formula. I use a mom-and-pop pharmacy that I have been using since I first started having seizures because they deliver. So that way when I could not drive I could still get my medication. But when they switched me to the blue pills made by Soclo and LLC of Accord I tested negative For Quanah been for the past six months. I get tested every other month. My other meds were showing up but not that one. And I felt like garbage and I also had a breakthrough seizure. Thank God it was not a tonic clinic seizure. But your best bet is to work with a small family owned Pharmacy. One that knows you. One that knows why you take them etc. etc. My insurance was of no help in trying to get the actual dispense as written. They said that would cost me $289 a month. That’s a car payment..

Between my doctors appointments and other co-pays for other medications there is no way that I could afford that. So just keep trying and keep doing your research. If you need more information let me know. I do have every single one milligram Iclonazepam, What they look like, what the marking is, with the company that makes it is. With the color is. Some companies have some companies or LLC’s. So that’s why some different companies have the same markings. It’s simply because the parent company is the same. It all gets very confusing once you start researching it. I wish you the best of luck.
