Comments Submitted Says:

I have taken Clonazepam for a number of years. It has always been the Actavis product. On my last prescription refill, the pharmacist arbitrarily switched me to the Teva product. Is this a problem? Which, if either, is the better product? Is there a product better than either one of these 2 mentioned above?

This can happen from time to time as manufacturers change their production schedules around, etc. It is hard to say which is the better product because technically the same generic product from multiple manufacturers contains the same active ingredient(s). That said, some people do experience slightly different effects from a product coming from a new manufacturer. What has been your experience so far? Does anybody else have an opinion of the Clonazepam from Teva? Please keep me posted....

Teva has a generally good reputation as one of the better generic manufacturers. I recently switched from Teva to Actav Clonazepam and can't say I notice any difference in efficacy, but I split a 1 mg. pill in half and where the Teva pills split cleanly and evenly by hand, the Actav pills are difficult EVEN WITH A PILL SPLITTER! I asked my doc to write my script for 0.5 mg pills, so problem solved, but I would still prefer Teva if available...

My pharmacist switched me from Mylan to Teva, and the Teva product doesn't work. I reported it to the FDA. Several Teva products are currently under investigation by the FDA. I have had my doctor specify "NO TEVA" on my pharmacy record and all my scripts. Recently, I received Actav as a substitute, which is yellow (not blue) like the Teva product. I haven't take it yet, so I can't say if it works or not. My bet is that the Brand name (a blue pill) is the one that works. If you can afford it.

Re: Roy (# 1)

I was taking Teva and then the pharmacy didn't have it so they gave me Accord that did NOTHING for me. I went back to the pharmacy and they gave me Teva to my surprise. Teva is now being manufactured. There for a while they ran low so that's why Accord was substitued. So happy Teva is back. It Bellmore for my anxiety and insomnia. Now the doc told me I've been o. them and he can't prescribe that for me anymore so I'm going to take it less than what's prescribed so it'll hold me over until I can find someone to prescribe it for me. I hope this helps you. Now that Tiva is back in business hopefully you can find a pharmacy that is now carrying Teva

I made a petition, maybe we can get it back. All other brands make me sick and I'm going to lose my job.

Actavis was bought by Teva in Aug 2016. That is what I found googling actavis.

Re: Roy (# 1)

actually technically not,nor legally. FDA allowed for +/- 24% of active ingredient in generics.

I have Actavis clonazepam Thor numerous here. And all the sudden I can't get it anywhere. Some are saying that they are not making any more. I know Teva had bought Actavis out. Now Teva's brand is on the market along with other ones and I'm having trouble finding one that will not give me bad reactions. TEVA brand does the total opposite of what it's supposed to do. It causes my heart to race so bad it feels like it's going to pop out of my chest. I don't have a history of heart disease. It doesn't calm me down at all. Can someone tell me if Actavis will be manufactured again?
