I have read & heard that the generic Mylan brand of diazepam doesn't work as it should. My insurance will not cover the brand name & it's pretty expensive. What other generic brands are out there that DO work? I use CVS as my pharmacy

Hi MDgirl, Here's a link to view the different strengths and manufacturers of Valium. I agree that the Valium does work best. There's also Barr pharmaceuticals but haven't heard much about them. There's at least 3 pages of different ones. Hope this helps!

Mylan does not work for my mom who takes it once in a very great while and Xanax is also prescirbed by Mylan and I cannot tolerate anything made by Mylan, just a minute let me get up and look at the medication bottle and see if I can find the manufacture--I am so very very sorry I thought the drug manufacture was listed but it isn't, this won't help but its worth a try have you ever taken another generic other than Mylan? talk to the doctor, Roche was the first that came out with Valium, I don't know whether your insurance would pay for that brand or not, my guess is probably not but tell the doctor exactly what you have explained about the effects of the Mylan brand, maybe he can discuss tis with the pharmacist and together they can find a brand that you can tolerate, I wish you the very best, please take good care
