I have been taking TEVA clonazepam .5 for years and it was very effective! Now I hear that TEVA does not make it anymore. I was prescribed it via ACCORD mfg with very poor results... headaches, nervous, and more. I hear that the are also SOLCO and AVTIVIS mfg. I need some input re which one would be better... or any others. I heard that the inactive ingredients have a lot to do with it. I also know ACCORD is made in China and have heard some horror stories about their clonozepam. ANY INPUT GREATLY APPRECIATED!!

I called TEVA today, 6/19/19, and according to the customer service rep, TEVA is bringing back their clonazepam tablets, probably by the end of this Summer, although she had no exact date. In the meantime, TEVA does still manufacture clonazepam in orally dissolving tablets. My pharmacist nor my doctor knew about this. I only found it out by accident online, but if you are having problems with the other brands tell your doctor about it and ask him to write you anew scrip specifying TEVA ODT (orally dissolving tablets). You might have to wait a bit for your pharmacy to order them for you - as I said, my pharmacist had never even heard of them. Also, your pharmacy may or may not get special orders for you, but my local CVS is very good about it, and I don't even have private insurance - I'm on Medicaid. It's worth trying - especially if you've had success with TEVA, and other brands are not effective for you.

I, too, used TEVA brand clonazepam for years and was suddenly switched to Activis with no explanation. I leaned that TEVA had bought Activis Pharmaceuticles, and was no longer producing clonazepam tablets - but distributing the Activis brand instead.

Further researcy showed that, at least for now, TEVA *does* still manufacture 1 mg cloazepam in the orally dissolving tablet. My pharmacist, nor my doctor knew this. I had to find it out myself and tell my doctor. You r doctor has to write the scrip for 'TEVA ODT' (orally dissolving tablets), and you might have to wait for your pharmacy to order them and get them in for you. Like I said, my pharmacist didn't even know about these - she just changed me to the new brand with no warning, bounced me back and forth between Accord and Activs - both utterly useless for me. Different people react differently, but if you have a problem with these, tell your doctor about it, and ask him to write you a new scrip for the TEVA ODT.

Re: Jen (# 13)

Hi Jen. I received a call from customer service at the number noted below on 4/1/19 that they were going to bring back the old formula clonazepam in 3-4 (I don’t know what that means).

WE ALL need to keep contacting them. The customer service guy told me to email TEVA at:

to complain about Actavis, ask for the old formula TEVA back, and ask about a timeframe.

Please post updates. Thank you!

Thanks for the input. Activis has worked for me and I won't take Solco or Accord going forward.

Re: Anna (# 2)

Solco is absolute crap having tried almost all generic brands of clonazepam, this brand is by far the worst and least effective, with the DEA law that only allows transfering medications once. This is a huge problem for me. Teva was and Accord is way better than this trash.

Re: Sam (# 7)

Actavis is the brand from hell i almost seized in the nail salon luckily i had seizure meds with me so i took that and it passed i had just switched from teva to actavis 2 weeks prior it slowly dawned on me i was in withdrawals once i went on solco within 20 min the symptoms went away. I'm so mad at teva for doing this to me and other patients first it was lamotrigine and now clonazepam

I tried the activas clonazepam, horrible, Solco is Qualitest, which is not bad. Teva was great. but not available anymore. I take 1 mg pills, and 2 mg pills, this time I got accord 1 mg and 2 mg solco. Hard to tell any difference, but they are different strengths.

Anna, I can totally relate. The same thing happened to me on Solco. I would not recommend it! It was horrible! What is happening to our drugs? I'm glad you found what you needed. My brand was disc. for good (Mylan) and I've been thru 4 different brands but none were as bad as Solco! Good luck to you.

Re: David (# 1)


My Pharmacy King Soopers told me that they could no longer provide clonazepam by the manufacturer Teva. Instead they gave me Accord Healthcare brand. I did give it a try for a month and a half. I didn't know what was going on with my body but it felt like I was going through withdrawal symptoms. I lost my appetite, I couldn't sleep, I had confusion, my irritability was through the roof. I had no patience for anyone or anything. Four times I got up and it felt like there was an earthquake and the whole room was shaking, of course it wasn't. It was me that was shaking and I was told by the ER position that I was actually having a mild seizure and asked if I had stopped taking my clonazepam. So I transferred the remainder of my prescription to another Pharmacy that did in-fact carry the Teva brand. My symptoms all went away and I feel much better. I don't know about Solco MFG and quite frankly I'm afraid to try anything else after what I went through with the Accord brand.

David Says:

Hi Johnny,

You're spot on about the inactive ingredients having a lot to do with the medication efficacy. In Canada the drug labels actually refer to them as "non-medicinal ingredients" instead of stating "inactive", and I think this is because they do affect the quality of the medication without providing any therapeutic value.

The challenge with determining which manufacturer's brand or generic one should take is that because we all respond differently, the only way to know for certain is to at least try it and give the medication some sort of trial run to allow your body enough time to adjust to any inherent changes within the tablet itself.

Everyone's unique input and personal experiences do matter, but I don't think they necessarily portray how you yourself will react or respond, even to the same medication.
