Teva No Longer Manufacturers Clonazepam

Updated
James Says:

Teva No Longer Manufacturers Clonazepam, and I personally feel it is a good thing.

Teva, in my opinion, is a low-quality company who actually manufacturers 70% of their products overseas, in cities and communities I don't think you would want to live in.

I find the change-over, in terms of most of my medications, including clonazapam 2mh hs to be more effective than before.

There are, of course, individual differences, but this is how it is for me personally.

Would anyone else care to comment?

From what I can see on their site, they still list it as being currently manufacturer. The FDA warns that it carries the risk of being habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache, and irritability.

Where did you hear that they discontinued it? What company manufactures the ones you are receiving, now?

They still make it. I am on it. I have been on the TEVA brand for years. I was on Carico at Walgreens and then they carried Mylan which never worked. Went into withdrawal. TEVA did quit making the 1mg for a while but they are back making it. I have been on the 2mg since 2010.

I couldn't get Teva the past two weeks and I'm trying to adjust to a different generic, not fun at all. The new generic doesn't work as well for me, I'm taking 3 or 4 times as much (a low dose of 1/4 mg/day to begin with) and it doesn't leave me as protected. Not happy. I hope Teva returns, I had no problems.

I have checked all pharmacies in my area. Everyone has switched to the blue 1mg pill. After looking at both brands the blue pill is a cheaper brand a totally different make up with less ingredients.

I just spoke with TEVA and was told they have discontinued making Clonazepam?!? I have been on this specific generic for over 10 years. I tried Mylan brand and it was awful!! I take this for anxiety and panic attacks. What are my other options?

Re: Verwon (# 1) Expand Referenced Message

my pharmacy last week told me TEVA stopped with production of cloneazepam. I am not sure I have a good or better replacement. I'd like to know which one is closest and best.

TEVA aquired ACTIVIS and are no longer making their own TEVA brand of clonazepam. My CVS switched to the Mylan for a week and then back to TEVA and now that they have run out they are Using the ACTIVIS and much better

Are you saying the Actavis is better than Teva? I've been taking Teva for over 10 years and was told by my pharmacy that they cannot order it. Kind of freaking out.

Activis is probably the closest thing to TEVA brand.

Re: L (# 6) Expand Referenced Message

Hi,
I take Clonazepam and it was working very well and my Cvs changed manufactures to the One company that still distributes it. Why are they discontinued? Does this mean only brand is going to be available?
The recent one hasn’t worked for me at all. I don’t know what to do. Publix carries North Star but never heard of it.

Matt Says:

I’ve been taking the Northstar brand for about 3 weeks since Teva stopped manufacturing them. Teva is in a lot of trouble right now financially, their stocks are dropping big time which makes me scared cuz I also take Teva Seroquel. The Northstar has taken some adjusting to, you won’t notice until about a week cuz it’s such a long lasting drug but I was finding myself getting really angry and depressed. I honestly think the Northstar May be a bit stronger than Teva because I’m not having anxiety just very gloomy depression which could be due to its depressant properties. I’m gonna stick with it and try to break the pills in a way that makes one half smaller than the other. I’m prescribed for .5x3 but only take 2.5 pills so I just toss the other half in another container, have like 100 half pills of various sizes. Northstar works, it’s actually the same pill that Sandoz manufactured years ago.

Re: Matt (# 17) Expand Referenced Message

You are having a bad reaction to the replacement. Ask for another manufacturer until you get it right.

Teva still apparently makes their 1 MG tablet,or there is still a significant unused supply which can be easily cut in 1/2.

I had the same experience.... within 5 days perseveration.

Re: Izzy (# 15) Expand Referenced Message

Teva's is a generic for the brand, Klonopin. Ask for that, telling your doctor and insurance company, who already know or should, for the name brand, telling them none is effective.

Generics are cleared by FDA for +/- 24% of the active ingredient. So a change leaves nobody knowing how much you were getting and are now getting, and thus the change, along with the ingredients that make it a pill,which are different and interact with individuals differently.

Who Dat Says:

Teva was caught bribing Russia and Mexico to get drugs into their countries, (India Times). 2 million$ fine, Teva has bought Actavis and quite a few other "generics", mind you distributed and manufactured are 2 different things completely, Actavis, Apotex, and Accord are all manu. in India! Most generics show an american address, but, are manufactured in India. Remember Puerto Rico has had no power grid, so no more generics from there for awhile, I believe the few last generics from there were shipped to the U.S., but, do not get generics made in Mexico, heard there have been quality control issues. Lack of quality generic drug manufacturers is wreaking havoc on us all, as I take clonazapam and have one script filled with 3 different manufacturers, Walgreens did not have 30 of the same brand and ordered Mylan 2x's and warehouse sent Accord and another generic brand. It's getting bad folks.
