Eric Says:


Please help with this, i have taken the mylan brand for several years, when the pharmacy could no longer order it they ordered Teva, it immediately gave me pains that seemed to be in my chest....kind of the opposite of what it's supposed to do. So with Mylan being available though only two pharmacies, someone mentioned accord...but what is the difference of fillers. could you simply list all the ingredients for all three brands so if Accord matches Mylan i'm ok?

Re: Barbie 616 (# 19)

Lazaro said it Barbie. "WALLY-WORLD"; as we call it in New Mexico- has got your Accord. If you call when they're open and make 100% sure its all kosher, you can set up an account, do your transfers, etc. ALL on their uh..."location on the world wide web" so to speak. While this topic of clonazepam is up, do any of you know a pharmacy that offers Qualitest clonazepam? It is better than the brand name Roche Klonopin. It's tops. Those blue tablets with the stylized V, unscored.. soft enough they start in your mouth instantly.. I will find them eventually. I love that I found MedsChat.com!

Hi Eric, This may sound stupid but some of the pharmacies out there are that way and I know about cr**** generics lately. But make sure they are giving you the right drugs just to make sure. I'd even go further than the bottle label. Sometimes I wonder where they get these generics. Is it just to save/make money possibly contracting from some foreign manufacturer that doesn't have the right formula or may be skimping on something?. Just maybe the FDA needs to investigate, or possibly need it themselves Try to find out where the pharmacy is getting them from. I've noticed that I had a generic filled drug that I won't mention and my mother had the brand name of the same drug. There was a BIG difference .I will say that it was a sleeping pill. The ones I had, I didn't feel anything at all. Her's put me to sleep instantly..... And anyone that feels they are getting cheated from these generics, maybe we should try a little investigating ourselves. Whatta ya think?

Just seeing this now in 2018! Yes Mike, I found that CVS by mail carries Accord brand. Such a relief. I’m back on my small amount and feeling fine.

As I said in another post, if we can tell that certain formulations of drugs aren't as good (with the original version almost always better) because we clearly feel the effects, and if you can rule out the placebo effect, think about what that means for something like a generic version of say a cancer medication that may or may not save a life...

Re: Mike (# 15)

I just now saw your post as I was researching the differences in the generic brands. I've been on the .5mg dose for about 2 years. Today, I picked up my refill & noticed the pill color was different. Realized it's due to the pharmacy changing manufacturers. The ones I picked up today are Accord & the RX was filled at Walgreens, as usual. I live in Indianapolis, but not sure if Walgreens stock varies by city/state. Maybe check your local Walgreens, if available? Good luck!

Teva is much stronger, try taking half? It's sad but true... Mylan clonezapam is less than half as strong as Teva. Unless you had a reaction to the binders and fillers! Great answer, the first one.

I had taken Mylan for years. I never had any issues at all. Last month i picked up my prescription like always and the pharmacy changed manufacturer to accord. I swear on everything this brand doesn't help anywhere close to Mylan. It gave me headaches. Has anyone else had problems with Accord?

ACCORD is terrible. I could function on Mylan but Accord has caused nothing but problems. So, where is Mylan clonazepam available? I didn't even feel like I was on meds except I could sleep,skip sometimes, etc. Accord is a nightmare.

Re: Mike (# 15)

accord causes anxiety and all kinds of side effects and I can't sleep or eat much. Teva and Sandoz sent me to the ER. Mylan isn't available. It worked for me. Accord will end up ruining your days and nights. ER doctor recommended I switch to Valium diazepam which is smoother and longer lasting. I tried all the clonazepams now and if I can't have Mylan, the Valium was okay but I spent a fortune trying all the generic clonazepams that landed me in the ER.

Re: Mary (# 30)

Tons. It acts like a street drug imo and made drastic changes in my ability to function. Accord v.s Mylan. Mylan didn't act like a street drug -I took it and remained alert after taking it for sleep at night for the next day or two. I didn't need to take Mylan every day but Accord will cause withdrawal if you try to change when you take it.

I've been RX'ed Klonopin, .5mg, qid, #120/month, for going on 7 years now. I switched from Walgreens here in NY, as the "MYLAN" generic, imo, was noticeably weaker, the onset took MUCH longer than previous brands. I came here to this forum after research, and found a "mom and pop" local pharmacy, who carried "TEVA", and the difference was, night and day.

I recently switched pharmacies when I moved (3yrs ago), and received an odd, orange pill, that looked completely fake. I actually was afraid, of moisture, handling them wrong, even a drop of water, would COMPLETELY dissolve this brand clonazepam, manufactured by Accord Pharmaceuticals. Upon more research, it approximately was a 50% to 50% ratio, of patients, whom claimed ACCORD'S generic Klonopin, .5mg, the orange scored tablet (that looks identical to a chips ahoy cookie), was almost as close to the brand name Roche Klonopin, whereas the other 50%, cited it was purely a "sugar pill". I was finally situated with the generic "TEVA" clonazepam, .5 tab (green, scored tab), for the last 2 years, until today...

I went to retrieve my monthly medications, and with no thought on the matter, I opened the bottle to remove 1 tablet, and literally froze, and said "there is NO WAY!". I was staring into a bottle of these yellow tablets, with the notorious large "M", the trade signature of the legendary "MYLAN" generics. I immediatley researched it, and found it odd, certain people swore "MYLAN" was a placebo, and others, who claimed full potency. Generic manufacturing allows a deviation of between 80% to 125%, known as "API", meaning the active pharmaceutical ingredient.

With that information, when we compare generics, the API is the same. Certain generics, have tons of other variables, including different binders, fillers, inactive ingredients, etc. I personally believe, along with individuals bio-chemistry, and the metabolization of the "generic" drug, there are CLEARLY, IDENTIFIABLE REASON, as to why a generic version performs differently.

That made me further think, how exactly the power of one's mind is. If a population of 100 candidates, that were prescribed, Klonopin, .5mg, i tab, qid, and hypothetically had the exact same generic, and researched their respective generic, and the MAJORITY of users found their particular generic was NOT FAVORED, automatically their instinct will kick and say "Great, I'm stuck with this useless generic Klonopin, now I AM going to experience what those patients reported".

So, basically yes, there are several variables that make a certain generic different than another generic, however, there's the fact of "mind over matter". I've gathered, if the reviews are negative of a particular generic, it doesn't necessarily mean, it will occur in you. However, there needs to be MUCH MORE OVERSIGHT, IN THE PRODUCTION OF GENERIC DRUGS, ESP THOSE IN WHICH THE API IS DELIVERED AND ABSORBED DIFFERENTLY, DUE TO DIFFERENT FILLERS, BINDERS, ETC, AND THE ACTIVE INGREDIENT IS SIGNIFICANTLY REDUCED OR D/C'd, THE SIDE EFFECTS ARE POTENTIALLY LIFE THREATENING.

Point being, we're all human; we're all different, have various illnesses, and often, multiple medications. There are several factors which alter the absorption of the active ingredient, BUT DON'T BE SCARED INTO THINKING YOU RECIEVED A PLACEBO, BASED ON OTHER USER'S REPORTS. GOOD LUCK!

Re: Gnrcdrgsallsuck (# 34)

Unless Mylan gets back on the market, I'm stuck with Accord. It causes anxiety which I never had. I took clonazepam Mylan 1 mg for sleep. The Accord is too strong for me. The Mylan yellow did not work for me. I got the green 1 mgs and cut them in half. I call Mylan customer service to see what's up with their clonazepam. They told me to keep ckg back. They still show the pill jpegs on their page. The Accord may work for people who need it for panic attacks but if that's not the reason I take clonazepam, it seems to cause panic attacks. I don't like them and I don't like feeling drugged.

Re: Mylan Bestie (# 35)

I've unfortunately had a seizure, roughly 4 years back, due to me actually 'boycotting' the Mylan generic. In regards to the Accord generic clonazepam, sources I've gathered, mainly from here and other Internet resources, A LOT of people claimed that Accord, was possibly a "cousin", or subsidiary of Roche. I looked at my 0.5, and 1mg clonazepam, and the imprints certainly appear to look that way, which would explain the potency. It's a joke, how there are basically NO overseas inspectors at these plants overseeing OP's, and QC, notably in China, due to a "lack of FDA employees not holding the proper criteria, and passports to travel outside of the country", and just recently, believe it or not, the DEA has actually STEPPED BACK from pharmaceutical companies and major distributors, thus reducing many "outsiders" to view operations, read and interpret quality control reports, batch testing, and most importantly, if their generic's composition is within the 80%-125% range. Money lining the pockets of these CEO's, at our expense.

I am having the exact same response now (switched by pharmacy from Mylan to Teva formulation of .5 mg clonazepam). Almost feel as if I am having a heart attack, my heart is pounding so hard!!!!! For me, the Mylan brand worked fine. Had a similar reaction switching from Mylan brand of an SSRI to Teva formulation - Mylan superior (for me) in both instances.

I’ve taken clonopin and the Teva brand is by far the best. Mylan is one of the worst generic manufactuers, this is well known. Their generics are rated B-C which translates to poor quality, whereas Teva is rated as a A generic. Always ask your pharmacist the grade of generic your getting and the company who makes it before accepting any prescriptions.

Re: SJ76 (# 39)

Every patient is different. I think it depends what it's taken for. The Mylan works for somebody that needs something but the other ones are just too strong. If something doesn't work for an individual, they will get what it's supposed to treat people for and the heart stuff is mentioned a lot here from a few bloggers and the too dopey stuff as well. We are all different. For me, Mylan did what I needed it to do without interfering with driving, my heart and I didn't get too dopey to function.
