right now i'm using mylan brand from walgreens
15 Jan 2011
Mylan brand clonazepam was the first benzo I was ever prescribed. Since then I have tried lorazepam(Ativan) temazepam(Restoril) and alprazolam(Xanax), all Mylan brand. The reason I went from one to the next was because there were inconsistencies with the medication helping me. After doing some research on the differences between generics and name-brands I found that not only do some generics work poorly for some people, but Mylan seemed to be named as the worst of the generics by the majority of people who have taken it. I would have to agree with this. Even taking the Mylan version of Xanax wouldn't help me, which is crazy considering the potency and being the 'drug of choice' for benzo abusers. I explained my research along with the suggestion of Klonopin being one of the 'safer' benzos to my GP and she wrote me a Rx for name-brand Klonopin. Just to clarify, I am in the military and when we see a doctor, it is almost always at a military facility.
When meds are precribed they're simply input into a computer program while I walk over to the pharmacy (which is in the same bldg) I show my ID, the pharm tech pulls up the info, and I walk out with the precription. Needless to say, this time she wrote an actual paper Rx, something I really didn't even know what to do with. After going to a few pharmacies out in town I found one that carried Klonopin and picked it up, unfortunately I had to pay $141. This was also a new experience, having never had to pay money for medication. In short, Mylan seems to be one of, if not the most ineffective brands to use. Try finding another, or opt for the GOOD stuff. The Klonopin works wonders for me where the generic clonazepam didn't. Don't know why, but the fillers make a huge difference. Hope this helps.

I have tried all different brands. Teva was so bad, that it sent me on a journey of hours of study to find this little known, but incredible brand.
Activas makes the best generic.
When my pharmacy ordered it for me, the 1st time I took it, it was like taking a benzo for the 1st time. My body felt warm, and I had not a care in the world. The results are still there 6 months after starting them.
Google Activas in the USA, and you can find a list of products they make. I switched to Wellbutrin XL 150, and the effective results are amazing.
They take pride in their products. They are a little known company that is gaining in popularity as people discover them.
Currently, I was doing a search of Generic Opana, to discover, that they are getting ready to release a brand name pain reliever. To release brand name products are unheard of by generic company knock offs, but their world wide extensive research and development department, allows them to do what other generic companies would not think of, wasting their money on creating a brand name drug.
I bought a list of drugs that Actavis makes to my pharmacy that I take, and asked them to please order any of these drugs I was taking from Actavis. They were happy to do so, because their wholesale prices are so competitive with other generic companies.
Good luck, and I hope this helps anyone else on Klonopin, or Xanax (as they make the under the tongue (OCD) Xanax) and any other drug they make, as their pain medication is rated as Number 1 across the board on all the forums.
If I was in the stock market, I would invest in them today, because their name brand pain medication will hit the market end of July.
I am not an employee or have nothing to gain by talking about Activas. But after years of having substandard medications, I was floored to find a drug company that lives up too, and in some cases surpasses the name brand drugs.
