Is Actavis Lorazepam the same as Watson?

Most pharmacies sell watson or actavis lorazepam in my area (LA), but I had serious side effects with no calming effect from watson so I returned to Rite Aid after taking one tablet. I heard that watson was taken over by actavis and they are manufactured at the same factory and same medicine. I used to take qualitest and that worked great but was discontinued. I also tried Mylan which was ok but they are discontinuing as they said they don't have inventory and don't know when the last batch is released. Leading pharma does not work for me, causing serious side effects. I visited or called about 30 pharmacies in my area but they only deal with leading pharma, watson and actavis. So I have no option but to try actavis, but if it's the same as watson, I think I can't take i...

Watson vs. Mylan generic lorazepam side effects.

Been on Sandoz mfr. lorazepam for 10 years; no problems; no need to increase dose. Sandoz stopped mfr. Now, can only get these generic's & Actavis. Having lots of troubles getting results; either nothing or zonked. Anyone else w/any experience which mfr. is closer to Sandoz (since FDA approves up to 2% differences in generics). Thank you. ## Hello! I have been getting 90 days supplies of Lorazepam 1MG from SANDOZ....my new Rx just came and it's from ACTAVIS.....it does not work or relieve any anxiety at all....I might as well take a placebo...it does not work at all....I took 2 pills...nothing and then 1hour later took 2 more....before with the other brand...I would probably be asleep....but,nothing with this new brand.....I do not know what to do about this....... ## I have...

Have you tried Leading Pharma or Teva Lorazepam?

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. ## It really varies from person to person, so there is not specific best pill that you can be told about. The FDA warns that Lorazepam carries the risk of being habit forming, and may cause side effects, such as dizziness, headache, nausea, mood changes, and irritability. What are the markings on the tablets you are currently taking? Can you please post back and clarify, so I can research more details for you? ## Leading Pharma lorazepam is...

Is sandoz lorazepam the same as watson or actavis?

Is sandoz lorazepam the same as watson or actavis? I mean, the same brand? I heard that they are same company or same manufacturer. I took watson but due to serious side effect (panic attack, heart pounding, dehydration, choking, asthma, internal tremor, insomnia) with no calming effect, I was very ill so could not take it. Rite aid accepted return, but CVS did not accept return when I got serious side effect from leading pharma lorazepam at once so could not take it. CVS said in California, once patients receive any medicine they can not return it as it is against the law. Then why rite aid accepted return? CVS also told me that no transfer is allowed. But for controlled substance, one transfer is allowed as I experienced a lot of times before. Once patient bought it unless they return...

photos of lorazepam

Please show me photos of a round pink pill with the markings M 32. ## A round, pink tablet with M over 32 is manufactured by Mylan Pharmaceuticals and they list it as containing 50mgs of Metoprolol, which is used to treat high blood pressure and certain cardiac conditions. The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, increased urination, and hypotension. You can view an image and description here 0378-0032. Is there anything else I can help with? ## Is it good for anxiety I would like to know this to substance control

Is Mylan Lorazepam Discontinued?

My pharmacy told me that they can't buy mylan any more and they do not know if it is discontinued or not. Since Qualitest lorazepam was discontinued, Mylan is the only lorazepam that works (less effective than Qualitest) but works with less side effects than others (Watson, leading pharma, actavis: don't work causing serious side effects). Any alternatives, or another generic lorazepam that works ok? Lorazepam is the only sedative that works for me for anxiety and stiffness due to side effects of levothyroxine. Other medicine such as clonazepam, alprazolam (xanax), cymbalta, zoloft, lexapro, etc do not work. ## I don't know about lorazepam being discontinued but I was told by two representatives the they are discontinuing clonazepam and I'm devastated. Mylan is the only ...

Inactive ingredients of Qualitest or Leading Pharma Lorazepam

What are the inactive ingredients of Qualitest lorazepam or Leading Pharma lorazepam? Does anybody know? It seems that its formula might have been changed because I feel 1mg is less effect than before or does not work. I used to take Ativan 1mg before abroad and one month from Kaiser in the U.S. but they gave me refill as generic lorazepam (Qualitest). I felt 50-60% effectiveness compared to Ativan(brand lorazepam). I can't take Watson lorazepam as it does not work for me causing side effects (rapid heart beats, sweating, anxiety, dehydration). Qualitest has less side effect (less dehydrated than Ativan) I did not have physical dependence on Ativan for long time and quit too. But this generic lorazepam is getting less effective over a few months. Also my pharmacy had changed Qualite...

2mg lorazepam by qualitest or actavis/watson - any difference

I just refilled a prescription for 2mg Lorazepam but this time I got a much larger pill manufactured by Qualitest. The previous med I was taking was manufactured by Actavis/Watson…. Has anyone noticed a difference in symptoms? ## Hello, Angela! How are you? Have you tried taking it, yet? They are just manufactured by different companies, but the medication itself is the same. The FDA warns that it carries the risk of being habit forming and could cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache and irritability. I've taken the one by Qualitest before and it worked well for me, but that was several years ago. ## I have been taking Ativan/lorazipan for a long time, it seem every time I find a brand I like they stop making it, right now I am taking qualitest 1mg, and it wo...


Hello, I noticed that Sandoz is manufacturing Lorazepam again.. (the has stopeed for 2-3 years now). I am wondering if anyone has tried them? How do you rate them? Do they make you sleepy? Do they help with your anxiety?? Any details would be great.. Thank you.. p.s. (I used to take them before Sandoz had stopped making them for years and they had helped me worderfully. Wondering if they are made the same now.) ## Hi Bessy, As I do not have any experience with Lorazepam, I am unfit to answer your question as accurately as I would like to. I have attached a link to one of the new Lorazepam threads down below so that you can speak with others on the site about the new version and their experiences. Discuss/Possible-New-Purepac-Lorazepam-233726.htm I hope this helps! :) ## they work fine....

Lorazepam with same fillers as MYLAN

I am very sensitive to fillers and have just learned that "MYLAN" has discontinued it's Lorazepam. I cannot find a brand using the same inactive ingredients as MYLAN, which I tolerate well. Can you tell me who makes Lorazepam as MYLAN did, with Lactose Monohydrate, Microcrystalline Cellulos, Polacrilin Potassium and Sodium Stearyl Fumarate? (PLZ include all that you find as our area has very few pharmacies.) THANK YOU. ## Hello HomeTown Mom, Sorry to hear that the brand that works for you is being discontinued. Hopefully I can give you some viable options based upon the information you have given me. Out of the 100 brands I reserached on the NIH website these are the few that have the exact same active and inactive ingredients as the Mylan brand. Mylan Aphena Proficient Rx L...

Sandoz Lorazepam

I have been trying to get Sandoz Lorazepam, and finally after three months I found a drugstore that actually cares about people, Bath Drugstore in Bath, Pa. they are the best. They didn't tell me that they didn't carry Sandoz, they told me...Tell us what you need and we will order it for you...GOD BLESS THEM..... ## Hi Marjorie, Even though it took some time, I'm happy to hear that you were able to get your prescription filled from a reliable pharmacy. It seems like finding one like that is considered to be somewhat rare now-a-days, especially with all the strict regulations that have been put in place by the DEA over the past few years. I would encourage you to stay with them as long as you're able to. Not many others out there seem to have it together enough to make th...


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. ## Well, you're pharmacy won't help, because if the active ingredient is the same, they are considered the same. The inactive ingredients are called such for a reason, they don't affect the drug. How long have you been taking your current dose? It is possible that you...

Excellium, Cardinal Health or Mylan Lorazepam?

I used to take Qualitest lorazepam but it was discontinued. I had to switch but Watson / Actavis does not work and causes side effects. Most pharmacies carry Actavis. My local Walgreens carries Sandoz which is similar to Watson. Another local pharmacy carries Mylan or cardinal health. Anyone tried Cardinal health or Mylan lorazepam and worked ok? Where can I get excellium lorazepam 1mg? I called 30 pharmacies in my area but none deal with it. I heard excellium lorazepam works well. ## The main issue here is that this is a potentially addictive substance, according to FDA warnings. Thus, most pharmacies are not going to give you an honest answer, because they don't know if someone calling is a legitimate patient with a need, or a possible drug seeker that might want to rob them. The ...

exellium lorazepam

I’ve been taking the generic brand Mylan Lorazapam for four years. Only one that helps me live a normal life stop anxiety/ptsd/ ect. Lorazepam is also the only medication that works for me. My Doctor and I have tried everything. But horrible side effects! Mylan lorazepam has been a miracle! Sadly I just found out that mylan is discontinuing I have a partial script of .5 mylan because 1mg is already gone and the rest is Actavis! I tried one of the Actavis today and it completely zonked me out and feel so weird! Only other one they said they have is Leading. But I saw people post horrible stuff about that as well. A girl I know goes to a different pharmacy and has the exellium brand. I’ve never heard of it... has anyone taken it on the regular and do you find it’s better...

white round pill 252/2 other side watson

found in daughters bag (21 yrs old ) can't find out what it is ## Hello, Joche! How are you? Is the marking possibly WATSON 242 over 2? They list this tablet as containing 2mgs of Lorazepam. The FDA classifies this medication as a benzodiazepine that is most commonly used to treat anxiety and nervous disorders. It carries the risk of being habit forming and could cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache and irritability. Is there anything else I can help with? ## Why are you going through your 21 year old daughters belongings? Smh..

tiny white round pill scored on one side no markings on other side

was told it is 1 mg lorazepam but cant find anyy information online supporting this.... can someone please help? ## If there are no markings, we can completely rule it out as being a U.S. manufactured prescription medication. They are all required to have markings to enable their identification. With no markings and based on your description, the greatest likelihood is that it is an over the counter product, however, there is also a small chance that it could be a foreign medication. Where was it found/obtained? ## I can confirm that a pill meeting this description is available in Australia, with the contents described. ## I'm trying to identify a small round white pill with no markings and scored on one side with one line. The front and back are concave.

Qualitest Lorazepam Is Discontinued - Any Alternatives?

I was advised by Par Pharmaceutical that Qualitest lorazepam 1mg had been discontinued and no longer distributed. Is this true? Qualitest lorazepam was the only sedative that works for me. Watson, Actavis causes serious side effects (panic attack, more anxiety, dehydration, asthma, heart pounding, can't sleep) with no effectiveness. (no calming effect) Ativan works but it's too expensive ($2500 for 30 ea lorazepam 1mg) and my insurance does not cover it and most pharmacies do not deal with brand Ativan and most insurance do not want to pay it. I heard leading pharma is not effective and some other manufacturers as they cut down 20% of inactive ingredients. I called 30 pharmacies and most of them carry Actavis or leading while Walgreens carry Sandoz and CVS carry Greenland and on...


A TINY WHITE ROUND PILL WITH 57 ON ONE SIDE AND A CANCER AWARENESS SYMBOL ON THE OTHER AND IT EVN LOOKS LIKE A R ## My son showed me a tiny white round pill, with ( I think, so tiny print) 93 on 1 side, 707? on the other. He said he was told it was some type of speeder pill, but he doesn't do that and brought it home for me to identify. I remember white crosses back in the '80s but I don't remember what those looked like so long ago. ## A tablet with the R 57 marking is manufactured by Actavis and they list it as containing 0.5mgs of Lorazepam, which is a generic for Ativan, it is most commonly used to treat anxiety, and nervous disorders. The FDA warns that it carries the risk of being habit forming, and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, irritability, and h...

White round pill 30 A

I have a white round tablet with 30 on one side and a wierd A on the other. Is it Ativan (Lorazepam)?

Qualitest Lorazepam 1mg

My local pharmacy recently changed from Qualitest lorazepam to Actavis (Watson). So I have to transfer. Most pharmacies here sell Leading Pharma or Actavis. I have an adverse reaction from Watson lorazepam (serious side effects with no calming effect). I used to take Ativan but it is too expensive to continue (I took it when I was abroad and from Kaiser in the U.S. but Kaiser changed it to generic Qualitest lorazepam). I do not use Kaiser insurance anymore. Qualitest is milder than Ativan in terms of effect, like 50%-60% of Ativan, but less dehydrated and OK considering it is generic. Ativan is $2600 for 1mg 30ea in cash. Besides, most insurance does not cover it or do not want to pay for it by forcing doctors to prescribe generic lorazepam instead. If you guys take Qualitest, could you...
