Teva Clonazepam

Mimi Says:

What does clonazepam have in it to make it fall under the controlled substance act? I have been taking this medication for some time. I was told it has a controlled substance in it. What is it?

Hello, Mimi! How are you?

Clonazepam itself is the controlled substance, it is a benzodiazepine that carries the risk of being habit forming, so the FDA and DEA make sure it is regulated.

It may also cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache and irritability.

I've been taking it for sometime myself. I use to wonder why myself. I'm extremely sensitive to different brands. I have been suffering for the last four months because the brand I always used drastically changed something in the ingredients. Just wondering if you have problems with different brands. To my body it's a difference of night and day. And when you try to get off of it the withdrawal symptoms are horrible. God Bless hope you do well on it but if you are going to stop taking it please be sure to lower the dose gradually.

I'm looking for Teva brand clonazepam 0.5mg. I'm in Peoria Illinois. Can you help me find a pharmacy that carries it? I've look all over with no luck... Why is this brand so hard to find and what is the next best brand to Teva?

When will they have the Teva Clonazepam again? I am almost going crazy with Actavis. Nothing works the same. Are there any that are similar? Do they make larger dose ones?

It's actually prone to being abused. That is the only reason for "controlled substances."

You're full of s***. I take klonopin for severe panic attacks. It has never gotten me high, but it lets me live a normal life. By the sound of your post, I'm assuming you're an addict in a 12 strip cult.

I only like clonazepam by TEVA. The other one by Activas doesn't do it for me. Why do these companies stop making a pill that works? I had to special order them the way it was. Now my Prozac company Sandoz is now stopping production. I have tried all different kinds. Anxiety and panic is a real thing, so why do these companies change when you have absolutely nothing else to take that works. They do not make all generics the same and no one can tell me differently. I can't understand why our country can't afford the name brand medicine? It was so much better in the 1960's. I am so disappointed with the medical field.

It is a benzo, in the same family as Valium, Ativan, Xanax, etc.. It is a controlled substance because it is addicting.

I have no affiliation with any such organization. I do have the problem of Teva clonazepam having disappeared. Drug war is about things that get you high. The heck with your health, as a bottle of aspirin will kill you, as will the bottle of Tylenol next to it

I also take Clonazepam twice daily for anxiety, I have had the name brand Klonopin (with the hole in the tablet shaped like a K) as well as most of the generics, I have been on Clonazepam for quite a number of years now, they're all the same to me Same active ingredient. I don't prefer one pharmaceutical company over another.

I really don't get it when people say that one brand is better than the other. You and I both can remember when these drugs had no generics and they are the same. The only time I remember a better medication is when a friend of mine sent me some xanax from South Africa. They were very light purple and taking one was like taking three.. Other than that a drugs are the same, at least for me.

Simple. The national origin and the FDA which allows +/- 24% of the active ingredient. A change can give one 48% of one's prescribed dose, up or down. Further, the binders and fillers that make it a pill are all different. Further any given pharmaceutical doesn't work for circa 30% of people.

I don't know where you are getting this information from but it's totally false, a myth/rumor/urban legend. Generics are 100% equivalent to brand name. The reason that they are cheaper is because they didn't have to spend millions of dollars inventing, research and development and marketing a medication, and that money has to be recouped. The generic companies are just copying a recipe. That's why when a new medication comes to market it's copyrighted for about fifteen years. After the patent expires any company can manufacture it.

No, they aren't. if so, the we would not be having this discussion about problems with TEVA disappearing.

!. any given pharmaceutical doesn't work at all on circa 30% of people.

2. the FDA allows for +/- 24% of the active ingredient. Look it up.

3.Thus generics are -not- always exactly the same as the name brand.

RE: Teva lost clonazepam because of losing legal case over synth

Isn’t this whole “no more Teva clonazepam” because Teva lost a lawsuit? I read that on the web. The crime here is affecting the patients who came to rely on Teva (a wonderful Israeli company) & I have taken it for years with life-changing results. So why take it out on the patients?

Rumors, myths, and urban legends. They're all the same. It's psychosomatic preferring one pharmaceutical company's Clonazepam over the other.

Re: Joseph (# 17) Expand Referenced Message

Uh, sorry, no it's not.My doctors (3) are at the top of the addiction medicine pyramid, a newly created specialty, and they tell me that the fad allows for +/-24% of the active ingredient. Using extremes, one could by changing makers move +/- 48%.

Fillers and binders don't agree with everyone.

Where is your information from?

Re: Amsterdameric (# 18) Expand Referenced Message

Binders and fillers do nothing to alter the active ingredient, in this case Clonazepam. I have been on Clonazepam for many years and I have had the brand name Klonopin by Roche and many of the generics, they are all equivalent. Don't believe everything you hear.

Re: Amsterdameric (# 18) Expand Referenced Message

Also, the FDA doesn't allow plus or minus 24%, if that was true think of all the medications that are literally lifesavers, chemotherapy drugs, antibiotics, etc.. plus or minus 24% with those meds and many more can be fatal to a patient. Again, don't believe everything that you hear.
