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.

I could only take the TEVA brand too. Tried all of the other generics. Finally, months later my doctor is prescribing the non-generics! I have been on the 20 years or so.

yellow I think. Then she prescribed Mylan 2 mg. which had to be split. Those worked better than any of the others besides TEVA.

Re: Kevin (# 1)

My doctor writes accord brand or Sandoz brand only in all my scripts. Certain meds need certain different generics ppl are all different. One generic of clonazePAM I;E ACTAVIS pharmacist the worst klonopin I’ve ever in my life bad the unfortunate time of taking it! I was on teva since 2008 and it did wonders now I’m stuck on accord and it’s sucky I have to take more of it and my doc I tell her all this and she writes whatever generic is best for her patient. Nobody can tell the doctor how you feel. You pay good money for their services and these junk meds we get. So next time ask for a specific brand:)

Re: Venita (# 2)

Let’s be honest. If you’ve been on benzos for 10 freaking years you’re hopelessly addicted to them whether u want to admit it or not. Try stopping you’ll have grand mal seizures brain zaps. It’s worse than opiate withdrawal. So for me I’ll continue to take my klonopin and any other benzo usually Xanax that s*** sucks but for panick attacks it’s a miracle. Long term absolute nightmare I was in Xanax for 10 years then couldn’t stand it anymore switched to Valium. That s*** sucked worse so I found happiness in klonopin it’s long lasting and it does the job. It’s not for u to feel high and s*** ppl and I’ve noticed a huge diff in TEVA and now accord/actavis which is what I’m stuck with every two or three months. I take 3mg a day have been up to 6mg a day. And I’ve came to accept the fact that if I try to quit then mmm it will never work I’ve tried 13 times. However I’m 6 years clean off any and all opiates. I kicked thag but can’t benzos. They’re awesome but they’re evil. And u ain’t been on em for 13 yrs or for a long time if You don’t agree with me because they are absolutely the hardest drug to quit. So just don’t even think about it that’s horrible. Yah teva is gone and NO they are NOT making it again. So get used to what u get it get brand name. A lot of it is in your head. So just don’t think about it. Give it a shot before everyone else makes your opinion for you.

Re: Jenn (# 40)

I took Teva for 15 years, was my favorite of all clonopins. A couple of years ago I could not find them anywhere. Finally on Accord, I find a clonopin that works well. Activas, name brand and all others did not Solco works well. I take Accord 1 mg 3 times and Solco 4 mg at bedtime

Re: Sam (# 46)

TEVA is in the process of coming back, they’ve started to release their 1 mg and the other strengths soon should follow. It’s the exact same formulation as it was before they switched to Actavis.

Re: Jace (# 49)

CVS has the 1mg, the .5s should be next since they are the most common. Teva never said they weren’t making them. I’ve been talking to them for months and they said the would be back to the old formulation by end of summer which is now. Don’t believe me? Call them. They’re back in many States, read any other forum on this topic and you’ll see many reports of the 1mg being back. I’m waiting for the .5 which should be soon.

Yeah I've talked to them too. They said they brought back the 1mg and didn't have a release date on other strengths.

Re: Jace (# 45)

I live in Arizona and I've been taken this for 25 years.
And you're right you cannot stop or quit taking it because you will get worse. But as for not being able to find Teva I was curious when I started reading this and I got up and I looked at my bottle and on my pills and there it is the word TEVA SO THEY HAVE TO STILL BE MAKING IT.

Re: JazzmanStar (# 52)

They didn’t for about 18 months and just recently went back to their own formula because so many of us complained
