I've been taking Accord .05mg which I split in half every 2 to 3 hours, for about a month and a half after they stopped making my Sandoz Clonazepam brand. It's okay. It's starting to work somewhat, but I have a problem. Two weeks ago I am not told that Accord is getting harder to keep in stock by my Pharmacy and my insurance plan wanted to switch me to Actavis. YUCK, that stuff is garbage. I took 7 pills, couldn't stand it anymore how it made me feel. I got jumpy, my body itched, it took almost 2 hours to start working, and it never felt quite right. I said no I need to get the Accord again. My question is, is anyone else having this problem with Actavis, or is it just me? And did the Actavis taper down on the itchiness and start to work for those who are new to taking it? I'm flustered cause I never had this problem with Sandoz in the 15 years I took that med. Thank you.

The Accord brand with the C on the tablet are just fine.

Re: Dee (# 13)

Dee I only just recently heard of the Solco clonazepam and my CVS drug store has that brand now. I'm really afraid to try it because I've read that they are horrible. I don't know if it's true because I haven't tried it myself. It's a disgrace what these pharmaceutical companies are doing and there's no use in complaining because no one really cares. But complain anyways maybe if they get enough complaints someone may do something about this horrible abuse. This medication is impossible to stop taking without some dier consequences as has happened to me and the manufacturer and the FDA should be well aware of this. I hope and pray that something will be done soon. Dee if you have tried the Solco please let us know if the are of any decent quality. Thanks

I was taking the Teva 1 mg. for years. I now am on Myla 1 mg. and they seem to work better than the other blue ones that made me ill. Can't remember the manufacturer of those but there were 2 that made me ill.

Re: Joseph (# 25)

I'm not having a problem with them but I only take .05 mg in the evening before bed. They help me sleep. Otherwise I'll take the same dose before going into the dentist. I suffer from a very strange anxiety that happens mainly in the afternoon. I used to get panic attacks and was on clonazepam for 10 years. I wish I could remember what brand they were back then. I think they were blue. But they might have been yellow. Gosh I wish I could remember. They worked very well. I went off them for a while and try to go back on them a year or two later. Whatever they gave me made me feel horrible. I couldn't take them at all and gave up on them until just about a year ago when they gave me something different initially. I think they were yellow. I think they just switched me to this solco about 6 months ago. I'm wondering if it's because I'm at such a low dose that I don't notice any ill effects? I did try to find some reviews on it but didn't find many. I agree with you 100% that what they are getting away with certain generic brands should be against the law.

Re: Mike (# 16)

I only know that Xanax is faster acting and has a shorter half-life then clonazepam. I never did like Xanax because of the fact that it made me feel too buzzed initially. Everybody's different... My sister prefers Xanax as well.

I just got stuck with the pink 5mg by actavis and it sucks. It has no effect at all. When I have expressed concern to my doc in the past about manufacturing differences he looked at me like I had bird on my head. I just called him to let him know but I doubt he can help. If I ask him to up the dose he will immediately assume I am becoming tolerant. I have been on 5mgs for years and never had to up the dosage. It is the pills not me.

Re: Bugs (# 24)

Every month when my prescription is due for 1 mg. clonazepam I have to call about a dozen pharmacies to find out who has the Tevas. I usually find one. I cannot take any other brand. Been on it for 25 years. The others all make me sick. I can take the Mylan brand if that is all I can find.

Re: Joseph (# 25)

I'm on my second script of the solco. I asked for them by name and the pharmacist found some there and wrote on my notes that's the brand I need. I've been taking them and have no problems with them at all.

For the first time I was prescribed Actavis instead of Accord. Actavis is s*** and ineffective. Accord is far superior.

I am getting worried about my clonazepam script. I have been on many brands but my pharmacy changed to accord a long time ago so I'm used to it. A few days ago I went to refill my clonazepam and they told me they were having a hard time getting the accord brand and they could only give me a 3 day supply until they could get something else. I have no idea what brand they will be able to get if any. I cannot skip this medicine I have been on it for 6 years. I hope these companies and the pharmacies get their stuff together in the next day. The brand they gave me a three day supply of was Purepac and I have tried to research if they are under another brand like activis but I can't find any record of them being the same. I wouldn't mind this brand because it feels the same as the accord I was on. I guess we will see really soon like tomorrow.

Re: Kevin (# 1)

Walmart carries Accord and if you can get your Dr to call them they can put the fact that you can only receive Accord into your file so they can keep it ordered for you. Accord and Walmart work together and I have had no problems compared to when I was trying other pharmacies. I'm in NM and TX Wal-Mart's do the same. Give it a try. Good luck!!!!
