Has anyone tried generic clonazepam by Sandoz Pharmaceuticals Inc., which is owned by Novartis AG? I just picked up my new refill of generic clonazepam 2mgs. Last time they had given me the generic Accord Healthcare which I didn't like. I inquired about Teva but had heard it had discontinued its generic clonazepam. Teva and Mylan were the only ones I liked, with Teva being definitely my favorite. This time they gave me the generic clonazepam by Sandoz Pharmaceuticals Inc., which is weird, just like the Accord Healthcare ones. Yet they both feel different. The generic clonazepam 2mgs. by Sandoz Pharmaceuticals Inc. have E on top of the numbers 65 on one side, and nothing on the other side, not even a score. They are white, completely round and very small with a smooth surface. I have taken 2 tablets but haven't been able to tell if they're barely okay, or if they're bad. I know they're not as good as even the Mylan ones were for me. The Mylans were okay, but not great. Can whomever has taken the generic clonazepam by Sandoz Pharmaceuticals Inc., which is owned by Novartis AG please tell me their experience or experiences with them please? I'd like to know if there are people out there that really like the Sandoz Pharmaceuticals Inc. ones that way I can know that it probably just happens to not work so well with me, but that it's probably not that generic brand. And please specify the mg. tablets you've taken since from what I heard, sometimes certain mg. tablets work better than other mg. tablets of the same generic brand. Thank you in advance.

Hello Openminded,

I think you really hit the nail on the head already when you said "that it probably just happens to not work so well with me". If this brand is not working for you it's likely because the process of manufacturing and inactive ingredients in the medication just don't work well for you as that would be the only difference between the brands you like and the ones you don't. Typically the inactive ingredients tend to be the culprits as they are the ones that determine the factors that you typically "feel" such as timing of the active ingredients release and how much of it releases as the medication dissolves.

My first suggestion is to give the pills a few more tries before taking action as that sometimes helps. From there I would suggest you take the medication to your pharmacy with your prescription in hand and see if they will exchange your medication for a different brand, this doesn't always work and even when it does they often charge the difference between them.

If all else fails I would consult your doctor and inform them that the pills you received are just not working well with your body and that you would like to request a new prescription that states you need a different generic this time.

I hope this helps. Let me know how this all works out for you and what you decide to do.

I agree with the in active ingredients bit. Sandoz does have very little inactive ingredients. The biggest difference between brands is the yellow food dye. Some are very reactive to these dyes as they are linked to ADHD behavior amongst other things.

I personally find Sandoz as good or better than TEVA and better than brand name Klonopin.

I do very poorly on Accord Healthcare. I have either having allergic reactions, don't tolerate fillers at all, or the medicine isn't what is advertised.

I lean towards Accord doesn't contain as much active ingredient as advertised. This is possible because the FDA allows it to vary by up to 25%, which is very dangerous with regards to clonazepam.

I personally got a refill of Sandoz in early January after being on brand name Klonopin and it works very well for me. Better than expected.
