Bonita B Says:


I've been unable to find Klonopin (brand name) at any pharmacy. Although I've taken this medication for several years, this is the first time I've been unable to find it. I've been told the manufacturer (Roche) has it on backorder. Some say it's no longer available. I cannot take the generic as I get a serious migraine. Does anyone have any suggestions where I might get a Rx filled?

Hi pndinbama,

I do avoid calcium and have been taking magnesium supplements for a long time. I know calcium is good for us but when I saw the mammogram showing mostly calcium deposits in my breasts, I figured I'd had enough. Magnesium is also good for your heart - maybe by reducing calcium plaque, who knows. Thank you for 'point of return' ... what I found gets me calm is a combo of the new klonopin-lite and a small amount of ativan. But of course better to do without more medications. And not all doctors will believe you should or do need 2 tranquilizers. But at least I sleep through with both. 1mg ativan in morning and night is enough supplement for the new k-lite.
I'll ask a friend who works for a pharma company and my doctor if there isn't a way for the FDA to do more investigation - but I don't know that I have the energy to fight Genetech/Roche and the FDA bureaucracy :)

I think each individual just has to find what is best for them. I was a anxious person before I started taking benzos. Actually was not seeking klon...went to ER and Dr thought I was having a panic attack which later turned out to be a heart defect. Of course it was the greatest drug....for awhile. I think the generic drugs cause more people to use too much because of their inconsistent quality. I'm afraid of getting off the klonopin because of the bad side effects and the chest discomfort that arises because of my heart defect.

I want to do Gods will for my life...and I think he wants me off this stuff..for me. But I'm scared as hell....rambling thoughts today. More like a diary.

I do think the klon may be working better...I did a stupid thing when generics came out and no name brand...started having marijuana along with klon...bout to start withdrawing from the marijuana...and even though would take less klon when smoking...sure it raised my tolerance. Any advice? Lol

Remember...less is more...when more becomes to much...God decides to withdraw those lil receptacle sites..and wont let that medicine get in. My theory anyway, lol.......Not sure if it is the smart thing to do........not recommending for everyone..go on a 3 day fast from benzos...maybe will make your body reboot if you're getting use to the same dosage. On second thought..dont try a 3 day fast. Lol.........wish they had a benzo support group in my area...Always consult with your physician......when taking my advice. Laugh laugh laugh...

Just checking in. Does anyone have any new thoughts on the Named Brand K?
I haven't noticed any difference since it's back in production. I hope that I don't.
If there was a generic out there that worked as well, I would try it but I have only tried one generic and it caused a severe burning reaction, must have no doubt been the coating and inactive ingredients. It was Purpac Pharma. I have heard Teva is close to named brand. I need something that has a softer outer layer. If I could just find a generic that would dissolve like the Named brand and actually WORK, then I would definitely try it. The cost of Named Brand K has gone up almost 20.00 more. Has anyone else noticed an increase in price? Any answers to some of my questions if not all would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Yes, brand klonopin is now made by Genentech but often sold as Roche (Genentech is owned by Roche now). The brand klonopin that Genentech makes helps most people but not all of us. This seems to be some change in the medicine as more of the new klonopin does nothing more than less of it (for me). I hope you find it and it works for you. Call pharmacies if necessary but I have not had a problem with it being available.

Yes, for whatever reason, klonopin 2015-6 does not work for me... so it took care of itself and I use less than I have used in years. It leaves me anxious no matter how much I take or don't take so ... less is more in this case; and I may soon stop taking even this 0.5mgs per day!
Sad they don't have a substitute for klonopin as I am very anxious all the time and always have been -- this is why a previous doctor suggested klonopin in the first place.

Have you thought about trying something else other than klonopin? Maybe ativan? I don't know if Xanax would help. I can't understand why it makes you more anxious when you take it but I know our system is changing over the years and there are so many other variables that affect how a drug works in our body. All systems are "unique "I wish they had a genetic that worked that I could take. I've only tried the one made by pure pac and had a terrible burning reaction to the inactive ingredients. It had a R34 on it and hard as a rock! I think inactive ingredients made to dissolve like the named brand could work for me IF I knew of one that did not have the hard outer shell /coating. I guess I'll never know as No one seems to know even though many people who have taken several genetics never comment on that when I ask.

All the best

I have been taking brand name Klonopin for many years with good results and have been noticing that it's not working very well for a while now. I Di experiance the same as some posts here have mentioned that the company stopped production for a while and then they were made available again a few months later. I wonder if the formula has changed or if it's a change in me instead. Sure seems like a Coinsidance to me that after several years things have changed in my need to take more then usual and not getting good results as well
Anyone having a similar issue ????

They stopped Production in January 2011 and it wasn't available until July 2011. Then 3 years later they stopped production again in 2014 and it was the last of October 2014 that it finally became available. In 2011 when it was back, I didn't notice any difference. In 2014 and 2015 I didn't notice any difference so far. It seems about the same but I hope nothing has changed the last of 2015 because that's what I'm talking now. I spoke to Genetech pharmacuetical back October 2014 they assured and insisted there have been no formulatory changes.

Julie Says:

Genentech cannot change the formula and sell it as brand or even as the same medicine. But the purity of starting materials might be something that affects a few people. Glad it works for most people the same as before the 'klonopin drought' of 2014. :)

Re: Bonita B (# 7)

Everyone is experiencing side effects from benzodiazepines, for they are damaging the Vagus nerve, which wines from the esophagus throughout the entire digestive tract. Symptoms can include: Nausea, vomiting, headache, diarrhea, constipation (feel like you have to go all the time but can't), irritability, bloating, gas, undigested food, light stool...if a person weans off these drugs it's withdrawal you are feeling. The only way to combat these symptoms is fresh fruits like apples, pears. Fresh vegetables if tolerated may have to cook, like carrots, sweet potato, cauliflower, Asparagus. Salmon, Cod, tuna fish, sardines. Try making a fruit smoothie to get the 2 fruits or 2 cups daily. We need 2 1/2 - 3 cups daily of vegetables. (More whole foods) Get private selection frozen fruits. To keep you in fruit in between fresh fruits. Better than canned. Apple cider, green tea, Chamomile tea, Dandelion, Burdock, teas, Kombachu Tea, fermented sauerkraut, plenty of "spring" water will help with resetting your digestive system. If you ever decide to wean off these destructive drugs. Google Vagus nerve damage from klonopin & xanax.

Kenan Says:

In Toronto most pharmacies will use generics since "Roche" only produces a finite amount of tablets and Clonozepam, while being a "controlled substance", is still heavily prescribed by doctors.

It appears the FDA has allowed Roche to continue production. If you are in Ontario, I suggest visiting several pharmacies in order to obtain the original manufacturer Clonozepam tablets.

Re: Benzo Madness (# 192)

Where can I fill a prescription for Mex-Klon? And price per 1 mg pill? I have just found out the ONLY two generics I can tolerate, TEVA and MYLAN are no longer made. The 'real' Klonopin was priced to me at over $11 per 1 mg. And I take 3 per day! Always out of pocket.

Re: Julie (# 227)

Maybe an ineffective generic?
I've had them make me very sick.
Sadly Teva, the best, is no more.
But my hopes are on Actavis.
I was first Rx'd it 22 yrs ago for a seizure disorder.
