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?

Re: Dubskii (# 40)

They do not work as long but if you take 2 a day as most people do you will be fine

Yeah, I’ve tried them all, stuck with Actavis since it’s my last refill. Trying to just adjust to a new normal but it sucks, I agree, the doses are inconsistent. I’m constantly going from Zombie from taking a half of a half .5 mg extra back to anxiety ridden when I go back to normal, there are a couple days in between when I’m ok but I cannot get a stable base level with Actavis or any other, constantly feeling either that I took too much back to I need more. This sucks, screw Teva and their new CEO.

The only ones left are the name brand klonopin (Roche), Actavis (formerly Purepac), and Accord, which i havent tried but heard it is ineffective and also made in China.

Every other manufacturer has discontinued clonazepam so those 3 above will be the only options going forward. You might get lucky and find some remaining Teva brand but it wont be around much longer. Northstar (Sandoz, Novartis) is gone. Par (Qualitest, Solco) is gone. Mylan is gone. Caraco (Sun) may still be available but i have never tried those.

The Roche (name brand) are way too expensive, so i try to get Teva if available but the next best thing for me is Actavis (formerly Purepac) which has been bought by Teva. Actavis does not work as well for me as Teva but after a week or so of taking them my body seemed to get used to them. My doc had to increase my dosage from .5 mg to 1 mg in order to keep it effective.

Re: Sam (# 43)

Just so people know the "name brand" is really not Roche. It's Genentech which is a division of Roche. I've had zero help from the Genentech version.

Re: Lobster (# 44)

Roche bought out Genentic 10 years ago, and has been making Roche klonopin ever since. It is the real klonopin, even says roche on the tablets. This said I have found it far inferior to Teva, but better than actavis and accord.

Re: Dubskii (# 45)

That was my point..while it may or may not be as the good as the original Roche, which ive never had , the Genentech version is nowhere close to being as good as Teva brand and cost $85 a month for 30 - .05 mgs

I was told by CVS Pharmacy that Teva no longer makes Clonazepam. Is this true? I cannot take the blue generic ones as they make me ill.

Re: Kathie (# 47)

CVS told the truth, for a change. I have cervical dystonia/spasmodic torticollis since 1997 and took Teva in first clonazepam for 23 yrs, then in my main Rx of Gabapentin when they had a generic. Criticize Teva if you want. But the only bad experience I had with any generic, was a company in TENNESSEE (sorry Tenn.) The only bad experience I had with gaba was a generic other than Teva. I now have been taking Cipla and Ascend Gabapentin and Actavis clonazepam. No problems, but the Actavis is way too chalky/dissolves too fast. I preferred the flat, hard, green Teva.

Any pharmacy saying they I have Teva Clonazepam I would highly doubt. The company has informed me by phone and email they do NOT make it any longer. Could only recommend Actavis. I did, and it's been fine for my medical disorder. BTW, Accord was horrible for me when I tried the 2-day sample.

Per call to TEVA on 4/1/19 they are strongly considering bringing back OLD FORMULA (povidone) clonazepam.

We ALL need to CALL TEVA customer service at 888-838-2872 (option #3 then option #5) for customer service asking them to bring back old TEVA formula ASAP bc it’s messing with our lives

Re: Klonz (# 52)

Im not calling anyone...this is total BS. If they wanted to they could change the current Actavis pills to the teva fomulation. Someone at teva/actavis customer service is playing you hard if you believe this. Call day and night but nothing will change.

Hurray! Please check if Teva will be making capsule form gabapentin, too. If so, the lives of lots of us will be better.

Re: Dystonia Patient (# 54)

Yeah... see if they’ll bring back quaaludes too. Apparently some people here think this is legit but it’s not. Either someone in customer service is playing you or you’re trying to form a personal army against teva.

Re: Klonz (# 52)

They confirmed that the TEVA formula is coming back, but it could be 4-6 months. Chack back for a tighter time frame.

Re: Sureeric (# 57)

Takes longer to ramp-up than to discontinue. Perhaps there are government difficulties, legal difficulties transferring older formula to newer ownership, then they have to produce enough to fill the distribution channels. It sounded a lot like 1/2 year

What did they do to make you mad?

Re: Eric (# 58)

Talked to cust service at TEVA again. They are asking all to email them at:

- to complain about Actavis and ask for old formula TEVA clonazepam-I understand the cynicism but it doesn’t hurt to try to get the old TEVA clonazepam back. Fighting for something you care about is important
