Which do you prefer: Accord or Actavis Clonazepam?

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 i...

Now I want to not take it any longer because it's making me ill. How can I detox slowly if I don't have a decent batch of clo that agrees with me? If anyone has any real information please let me know. I'm ill feeling every day if I take it it makes me ill and get withdrawal If I don't take it I get still getting withdrawal. ## I have been on the Sandoz brand and something changed. Within 10 minutes of taking the tablet my body would completely engulf in heat and sweat. It also felt like needles were sticking in my whole body. I happened to find a few tablets from another manufacturer from 2012 just to see i...

Actavis Clonazepam vs Other Generics

My 89 year old Mom has been on Clonazepam for years for sleep. The Actavis seems to work better for her than even the brand name Klonopin. She has had great difficulty finding another comparable version ever since Teva bought Actavis. She has tried several other generics as well without success. Thank you. ## I'm stuck to. I'm in withdrawal I had the pink one for 5 years, now, I can't focus, feel dizzy, off on general. Don't have a clue what to do. ## Under the Hatch-Waxman Act of 1984, generics are allowed to differ from the name brand by as much as plus or minus 20% in the amount of the active ingredients. The problem, however, is that they don't have to measure against each other, which means one generic could be higher, or lower than another, and it could even co...

clonazepam actavis

I have been taking .5 mg clonazepam made by Actavis for about 7 years. Now all of a sudden my pharmacy could not get it What has happened? Will Actavis no longer be producing it or is it on back order. If it is on back order, what is taking so long? Is there anyone who may still be able to supply it ? Thank you for your help in getting answers to these questions. ## Hello Maxine, I know that when Teva bought out Actavis back in Aug of 2016 that there was a lot of concern with the differences in manufacturing practices and some people were having difficulty getting their brands afterwords. It is possible that the prices have changed and your pharmacy has run out of this particular brand and are now stocking up on a new brand. I cannot find any information online that would indicate that ...

clonazepam ingredients solco brand vs actavis

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!! ## 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 affe...

On Clonazepam for 7 years -- help with withdrawal?

I have been prescribed Clonazepam (Klonopin) for 7 years, first for Restless Leg, then for ALS. The ALS was diagnosed at Columbia Presbyterian 3 months ago. My symptoms are clear but not completely incapacitating yet. In 7 years I have either lost or taken too many pills 3 times and each time nobody would help me, so I would go to the hospital, where I was always admitted (of course). This time I took too many pills and I just don't want to go to the Emergency Room again. It's ridiculous. They'lll keep me 2 weeks when prescribing the drug would do it... Is there another way? ## Hi Sarah, Usually for drugs like this the safest way to stop taking them is to tapper off them, if possible. Some medications can be taken in fractions (actually cut into pieces) and these smaller pie...

Teva No Longer Manufacturers Clonazepam

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? ## From what I can see on their site, they still list it as being currently manufacturer. The FDA warns that it carries the risk of being habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache, and irritability. Where did you hear that they discontinued it? What company ...

Generic Clonazepam by Sandoz Pharmaceuticals and Accord

Hi. There has been a lot of talk about generic clonazepam brands with many claiming something is just not right, people experiencing horrible withdrawal symptoms as soon as they get on these generic brands, people having seizures once again when they hadn't had any in years, people claiming they have to take 2 or 3 mgs of these generic brands for each 1mg of their previous generic brand like Teva or Mylan. I recently had a depression relapse and was taken to the hospital. At that time I had both Sandoz Pharmaceuticals and Accord Healthcare generic clonazepam. And I had been taking both generic brands in the previous 3 weeks switching them around. They were both 2mg tablets. Well, guess what? I took a bag of all the meds I was on and went bottle by bottle telling the nurse which ones...

Best generic Clonazepam

What is the best generic mine was changed too Qualitest. I am on 2mg TID and usually take Teva Pharm but that suddenly changed , know I could have it specially ordered but wanted to know if anyone else has had any experience with this generic and how it efficacy contends with other types of gerwic Clonazepam or Klonopin? ## I took it for awhile, due to anxiety over having heart failure, and it was Qualitest, and it worked great for me. I didn't even usually take the full dose, unless I was having serious trouble sleeping, I mostly took just a quarter of the tablet, or half. I was prescribed the 0.5mg tablets. But that is just me, the only way to see if it will work for you is by trying it. NDC code: 00603-2950 The FDA warns that this medication carries the risk of being habit formin...
