Clonazepam Accord

These are horrible, Accord clonazepam. Ill be glad when I get my new script and can go back to TEVA. ## There have been a lot of recent complaints on our site about medications manufactured by Accord. Sorry you also had a bad experience. Since pharmacies buy in bulk, it is highly likely that they'll still have the ones manufactured by Accord in stock, when you order a refill. So, you might want to make sure to tell them ahead of time that you don't want them and prefer the ones made by Teva. Are there any comments or questions? ## So I got my script filled before I left town and I always check my bottle for my good ole MFG and NDC#. Both were intact but the surprise was on the inside. Little Blue pills with the C and the 1..... Not my normal 1mg TEVA. Being trusting I figured ma...

better choices of clorazepam

my son was originally placed on mylan brand it worked beautifully then when they stopped production {but you are still able to get it while a patient in the hospital} we switched him to teva brand after failing on several other manufaturers, and he has done well, now they say teva has stopped manufacturing the clonazepam. what brand is comparable to these two? he takes 0.5 at night for his nighttime seizures.... I need some advise, don't want him loosing his seizure cotrol ## Hello Renee, There are a large number of generics available that your son could try, what's important to note is what inactive ingredients your son does well with and which ones your son's body does not agree with. For example the Mylan and Teva brands contain the following inactive ingredients accordin...

Blue vs Green Clonazepam... Plz help me to know the better of the two?

Hello all, I usually am given the GREEN #98 833 1mg clonazepam, but when I filled px today, she gave me the BLUE v2531 1mg clonazepam. Could someone please let me know which are known to be better? Thanks ## What you really have to do is try them and see if one works better for you. While they are technically the same medication in the same dosage, there can be fluctuations, however, what causes problems for some people might work great for you and vice-versa. Are there any questions or comments? ## Personally I have never heard of clonazepam being dispensed in a unit of 1mg; neither have I heard of or seen this drug in any other colours than peach or white. I have been prescribed clonazepam for some years and, here in the UK, it is generally dispensed as the Roche brand, Rivotril, by f...

Clonazepam ingredients Mylan brand vs Teva vs Accord

Please help with this, i have taken the mylan brand for several years, when the pharmacy could no longer order it they ordered Teva, it immediately gave me pains that seemed to be in my chest....kind of the opposite of what it's supposed to do. So with Mylan being available though only two pharmacies, someone mentioned accord...but what is the difference of fillers. could you simply list all the ingredients for all three brands so if Accord matches Mylan i'm ok? ## Hi Eric, Sorry to hear about your experience with the different makers of Clonazepam. I hope you've gotten around to feeling better since the timing of your post. As far as inactive ingredients are concerned, listed below are the National Drug Codes for each manufacturer's version of Clonazepam. If you click o...

Teva vs Actavis - are they the same?

I’ve been taking half of .5 Teva clonazepam for 10+ years. When I refilled my prescription I got the same dose but Actavis brand. I don’t seem to feel the same I have slight headache , jittery and spacey Not sure if it’s because I’m a hypochondriac and creating this stress or is it because the actavis brand is that much different than Teva ? ## Hello Cp4499, While the two brands do contain the same active ingredient it is possible that you are reacting to the differences in inactive ingredients. Below I have provided some info I sourced from the NIH. Actavis contains these inactive ingredients STARCH, CORN LACTOSE MONOHYDRATE MAGNESIUM STEARATE MICROCRYSTALLINE CELLULOSE D&C RED NO. 30 Teva contains the these inactive ingredients STARCH, CORN LACTOSE MONOHYDR...

Clonazepam 0.5 mg

I recently received Teva clonazepam and it worked great. Two weeks ago, I received clonazepam from Accord Pharmaceuticals and it was like a placebo pill. Has anyone taken this medicine By Accord and have you noticed a serious difference with it not helping? I've never had a generic never work before. I don't know what to do. All pharmacies in my area are now going with Accord Pharmaceuticals because it's cheaper. Help with an answer please. ## Hello Stirfry, Sorry to hear about your situation. Unfortunately not all brands of medication work the same for each person. If the Accord brand does not work for you please let your doctor know and see if there is a way that you can get a different brand ordered for you. I would suggest that you give this medication a few days to see ...

Transition from Teva to Actavis not going well...

I've been on .25 Teva clonazepam for a number of years and being sensitive to meds avoided taking the Actavis it was replaced with stuck with Teva pills from 2016 for a few months. My anxiety returned a few weeks ago that I think was related to the expired meds. Tried the Actavis and the transition isn't going well. My anxiety's still lingering and I just feel different on the Actavis despite the near equivalence of ingredients with Teva. Would it make sense to try the clonazepam wafer that Teva still manufactures? I'm curious if the formula itself for the active ingredient differs between brands, meaning the same medicine in the pill would be in the wafer. Or is there a brand qualitatively similar to Teva's that others have tried? Or am I just feeling side effects f...

Teva clonazepam wafer as substitute for the tablet.

Since Teva replaced their clonazepam pill with the Actavis version (which I'm not doing well with), would the wafer (that it looks like Teva still carries) make a good substitute? Does the wafer or the pill vary at all in distribution and effectiveness? And is it reasonable to think that the active ingredient in the Teva wafer is any different from the one in the Actavis tablet? Has anyone at least moved from tablet to wafer and experienced any difference? ## RE: "Does the wafer or the pill vary at all in distribution and effectiveness?" My gut tells me that it would vary (at least mildly) in distribution and effectiveness due to being a different composition altogether. I think a tablet would take longer to metabolize when compared to a wafer that's broken down quite ea...

Clonazepam by Accord

I have been taking 2 mg daily of Teva clonazepam for a few years. I have been noticing that my memory (both short and long term) is increasingly more affected by the drug. Over the past year I have found myself being on "auto pilot" alot. My pharmacy just switched my prescription to the blue accord clonazepam arbitrarily. Is there any evidence supporting the accord brand being easier on "cognitive fog"? Also, due to this fog", I would like to taper off of benzos for good. Could you recommend a safe taper schedule for clonazepam? Thank you in advance. ## Hello, John! How are you? I'm sorry about the problems you're having. Long-term use of this medication can cause such memory issues, as reported by the FDA. It also carries the risk of being habit forming and ...

Clonazepam where do I find Qualitest now?

What pharmacies carry Qualitest clonazepam anymore? I used to pick up my scripts for it from Target, prior to it being bought by CVS. Since, I have not had another generic that compared to these- they were even superior to the Roche brand name Klonopin. I have been using the Teva generic that CVS offers and am so glad that Walgreens is out of my life for good as a pharmacy due to their Mylan-only contract concerning their clonazepam. I am satisfied with Teva but have yet to find a pharmacy that carries my preferred Qualitest. Any help is greatly appreciated! ## Sorry to hear about your situation Lazaro. From the looks of things, many other patients throughout this forum are facing similar challenges with getting a certain manufacturer's brand or generic version. In my experience, th...
