It's January 2019 and I have been using TEVA Clonazepam 1mg for over 10yrs. I was taking most days 1.5 mg until recently. I had been tapering. Recently due to major anxiety (death in the family & several other factors) it was increased to 2mg sometimes 2.5mg. Since mid. November 2018. Actavis doesn't work on me. My doctor has given me a prescription of TEVA diazepam 10mg 3 per day. It's not working. Anxiety builds up in 3hrs. Need to stabilize for a bit and then begin tapering. I do not use SSRI's nor alcohol. No other medications. Please, any advice? TEVA worked.

I'm so sorry this happened to you. Teva messed us all up. It's possible that diazepam may not work for everyone, have you stabilized at all?

Per call to TEVA on 4/1/19 they are considering bringing back their old TEVA formula clonazepam.

Please call TEVA customer service at 888-838-2872 (option #3 then option #5) for customer service and tell them about your experience to demand they bring back the old formula asap.

Several patients have said it’s messing with their life.

I, too, used TEVA brand clonazepam for years and was suddenly switched to Activis with no explanation. I learned that TEVA had bought Activis Pharmaceuticals, and was no longer producing clonazepam tablets - but distributing the Activis brand instead.

Further research showed that, at least for now, TEVA *does* still manufacture 1 mg clonazepam in the orally dissolving tablet. My pharmacist, nor my doctor knew this. I had to find it out myself and tell my doctor. Your doctor has to write the scrip for 'TEVA ODT' (orally dissolving tablets), and you might have to wait for your pharmacy to order them and get them in for you. As I said, my pharmacist didn't even know about these - she just changed me to the new brand with no warning, bounced me back and forth between Accord and Activis - both utterly useless for me. Different people react differently, but if you have a problem with these other brands, tell your doctor about it, and ask him to write you a new scrip for the TEVA ODT.

Which generic a pharmacy might carry, at any given time, depend on who was offering the cheapest price through their distributor, at the time they needed to restock their supply. Unfortunately, not every generic works for everyone that tries it.

How are you all doing, now?

Clonazepam carries the risk of being habit forming, and may cause side effects, such as dizziness, irritability, headache, and nausea.

Diazepam didn’t work for me either. Tried it twice for at least two months each time it was a rollercoaster ride
