I've been taking Watson Pharmaceuticals Lorazepam and it worked great. Apparently, Actavis just took over Watson, and Watson no longer exists. I'm looking for another bran of Lorazepam that has the same Active & Inactive ingredients as the Watson brand, however, I can't locate the info on line and my pharmacy won't help me. Does anyone know what other manufacturer carries Lorazepam that is exactly the same as the Watson brand. Actavis and Sandoz manufacturer's Lorazepam does not work.

Your 100% right about Sandoz and Watson was the best. The best generic I've taken was Greenstone and Mylan. I don't know where you live but if you can get to a Walgreens have your Dr DAW (dispense as written) your script you'll get name brand for $0

Hi Ghost,

Greenstone and Mylan are brands of Lorazepam that you feel are effective. I'll check them out. How does someone get them for $0 at Walgreens??? Sounds too good to be true, will check out.

Have been taking Watson 2 mg Ativan for years, always worked very well, subtle and effective. Debossed "Watson" one side, 242 - 2 on the other. Latest script from Walgreens says "Manufacturer- Actavis" on label, but the tablets look the same except maybe a bit rougher around the edges. It's like it's not even the same medication.

Checked into this and saw a web photo of a recent label from the stock bottle -- "Made In India," I believe by Ranbaxy, which has always been real crap -- and I think the price went UP for this.

That's what I thought also. CVS wanted $400 for 60 cnt. Try ACTIVIS MFR they were bought out by WATSON and everyone knows they were the best. If you want next time you get ur script, make the Dr. write DAW (dispense as written), bread to Walgreens.Remember, their policy is 30 days minimum from last pick up. Make them last.Hope I shed some light.

Hi, I was amazed to find out that my local Costco Pharmacy does carry (still, not sure for how much longer) Watson brand of Lorazepam. My MD e-scripted an RX to them. The Costco Pharmacy Mail Order doesn't carry Watson anymore.

Hi Anxious,

YOW. Made in India. I'll have to check what I get from Costco that is supposed to be Watson. I thought the Actavis Lorazepam has to have ACTAVIS on the label...???

It's simply outrageous that Ativan even with a 75% discount is sooooooo expensive. Shame on the whole industry for how they treat people and their needs.

JMK, HI! I just got my Lorazepam yesterday & wasn't too happy when I saw Actavis made them & decided to give them a chance to work 1st b4 I get negative. I take 2mg 4x a day cause of extremely high anxiety. Well, I used to take Watson too but they took too long to kick in, by the 2nd day taking Actavis I noticed they worked much faster & I have a very high tolerance. Maybe, give them a chance b4 assuming they don't work just because thry're not Watson. Hope it works 4 u...

I took Watson generic lorazepam for 6 years. I was then given Mylan, and noticed an immediate difference. I noticed heartburn (GERD) and that it was not working.

I switched to another pharmacy that gave me Sandoz lorazepam.

To me personally, they were the exact same as the old Watson's. I (now) prefer Sandoz generic Adderall IR
because they work, and are the most like Watson.

Thanks Ryan,

So Adderall is a Lorazepam-like tranquilizer made by Sandoz that works like the OLD Lorazepam when Watson made it. WOW!!!. I'll give it a try. Many Many Thanks.

Ryan ... Two questions .. What is the IR after Adderall. I went to the link on Adderall and it says this:
"Adderall is generally well-tolerated and effective in treating the symptoms of ADHD and narcolepsy." YIPES I don't have ADHD or Narcolepsy. Not so sure this is for me. Do you have these conditions and are using Aderall for that???

Thanks.

Tammy ... of course Actavis wants you to believe that their version is the exact same as Watson, but from my experience and many others, it's NOT TRUE. I noticed the difference immediately. Sorry. Many companies are free to put MORE filler in than the prior company they have bought. Result: Weaker product.

Hi Ghost,

No Watson was bought out by miserable Actavis. Obviously they lowered the active ingredients. Apparently there is great leeway to exceed the limit of fillers. So Actavis is a BAD brand of Lorazepam, sorry.

denise Says:

Hi Ghost,

OK so you recommend Greenstone and Mylan. Another person rec'd Sandoz. Then went on to recommend Sandoz's Adderall (which is really for ADHD and Narcolepsy ...??? .. not sure if that would be appropriate for anxiety). Thanks.

Hi Ghost,

HUH??? Don't understand how you get a brand name (Ativan) for zero at Walgreens: " I don't know where you live but if you can get to a Walgreens have your Dr DAW (dispense as written) your script you'll get name brand for $0"

Have you done this, how does that work??? Please answer. Would love to know. Do you use an RX Discount Card and get Ativan (name brand for Lorazepam)?. HUGELY expensive EVEN with a discount. ?????

Hi Ghost,

I don't get it??? How can you go to Walgreens and have them fill an RX for Ativan and get it for a 0 co-pay. You must have a great insurance plan.
