Have You Tried Leading Pharma Or Teva Lorazepam?
(Newest replies first)

winjy Says:

Some people say it is less effective or has no effect due to less active ingredients, causing some side effects or reaction to someone. Some recommend Teva but some say it is not good. However, I can't get Teva as there is no pharmacy to dispense it in my area. I tried other brands after Qualitest was discontinued, but did not find any that work.

Pressed submit too soon... If you read documentation -

https:/­/­www.tevagenerics.com/­globalassets/­line-change-materials/­lorazepam-tablets-2-mg/­lorazepam-tablets_pi.pdf

It indeed is made in czech republic... however it works pretty well.

From Teva's website:

Where are Teva generics manufactured?

Many of our products are made in North America and by our parent company in Israel. The FDA inspects each of our facilities (inside and outside of the United States) to ensure our products meet the same FDA standards of good manufacturing practices as brand-name medications.

was told today that teva and activus are two seperate companies now, was on the old teva/activus and worked fine but got the impression the old activus/teva will be phased out

I was on the verge of sending my Leading tablets to a lab for testing, it was so bad. One thing I’ve wondered about is if some companies are introducing a time-release agent into the medication. My wife was given some Norco after a bad fall but got no pain relief…just a bad headache (this was in 2019).
I truly believe that this country’s obsession with assigning a negative stigma to these meds has produced liability-driven decisions.
Not for nothing but we need to stop calling a customer the pharmacist’s “patients”; they’re not doctors.

I’ve had awful experiences with Leading brand of generic lorazepam…and by that, I mean it has NO effect (it was prescribed for panic disorder). I was so desperate that I asked for name brand Ativan, only to find it cost $4,000.00 for 60 2mg pills!
I switched to Teva and they work the way they’re supposed to.
There’s another problem with all of this and I’d appreciate comments:
If a person gets used to taking 2 (or more) of the substandard Leading brand and then take the same amount of a brand that works, isn’t that the recipe for a lethal disaster?

I had some suspicions it might not but i mixed some with the old Actavis 'watson' then had my wife distribute them in my weekly pill case but she noted where she put them and I made sure i never looked.....utterly no difference that i could tell...in fact a couple days i felt pretty good and i asked my wife if those days were Teva..she said yes....

Does the new Actavis/Teva work? I am still using the one that says Watson on it. It is hit or miss

Re: Henry (# 183) Expand Referenced Message

Bausch Health will some day deal with themselves for raising the price on a medication that "is not" brand name. Just like Mylan with the EpiPen. I know y'all have seen my post about Wyeth selling it to Biovail. They turned it into a generic. Bausch Health bought it and never changed a thing. It's a generic plain and simple. Is it effective? Yes but no where near what it used to be. Aurobindo is for me the best generic available. It doesn't bother me it's made in India.

I used to have the same melting issue with the name brand back when I first started using it back in the early '80's. I found letting it dissolve under my tongue seem to get it working even faster than swallowing it intact. Of all the generics I've taken, the fastest 'melter' was Leading even though it was the thickest.

Re: winjy (# 3) Expand Referenced Message

They use it in hospitals because it works!!! When they send you home you can't find a drugstore that carries it. So now we are back to placebo or deviation of the required ingredients. Another cost cutting savings on their part not ours because we are the recipient of their greed. Think about it, how can the real one cost thousands of dollars and the generic cost a few dollars. Greed!!!

Re: Lou (# 2) Expand Referenced Message

I agree big pharma are playing with the ingredients. Deviation here and there can be felt by the person who requires the medication and knows how it works and when something is different with the pill. Example you are use to taken a pill that requires water to swallow it when you come across a pill that melts in your mouth before you can reach for the water... all bets are off. I report this to the Food &Drug . If enough people do that than maybe something will be done because it is a real concern.
