I was on Sandoz 1mg for about 20 years & it worked great. In 2017 my pharmacy gave me Teva for clonazepam as they no longer carried Sandoz. Then in 2018 Teva stopped making clonazepam & now the choices are Accord, Actavis & I hear some have Sandoz is available in 0.5mg only. Has anyone tried the Sandoz brand 0.5 mg tablet?
Actavis is Teva’s partner company Teva bought out many companies. I could only take Teva for years. I tried Actavis it was good quality. The only thing is I didn’t have side effects from Klonopin/clonazepam as I had after, a couple weeks on Actavis. When, I was given accord I actually, went through withdrawal. Sandoz- is hit or miss with many people it’s either they love or hate it.
There are still quite a few generic options out there - it’s just if, your pharmacy is willing to order another generic brand that would cost them more money- even though, it would be better on their part to keep customers. Smaller family owned pharmacies usually, will go the extra mile to meet your needs. Corporate pharmacies don’t put in as much effort. Just a thought...
Just for your information, Sandoz makes Clonazepam in 0.5, 1.0 and 2.0mg tablets according to their website.
Celest47 I have taken Sandoz Clonazepam for years over 20 and it's 0.5mg it's the only one I've foudn that works. Sadly like many they no longer make it which is sad cause I've tried so many other brands that are horrible, and don't work at all or little. Accord worked if I took more of it, but the wear-off time was quick.
After hunting around I found a place that does special orders that happens to have 0.5 Sandoz Clonazepam in stock in it's Warehouse, I've been about to get back to normal by taking it. My Dr who prescribes it has been trying really hard to see how he can get ahold of their overstock before they stop selling it to be cause it will hit an expiration date in September for selling wise. He said Meds last up to 2 years, he's hoping he can get me enough for that time slot and maybe by then they will have made this product or find something that will work the same.
Sorry if I'm confusing you, it's been rather confusing dealing with all these companies no longer making a product, and the ones that do are making pills that have hardly any of the active med in it! We who are taking this are suffering.
Anyhow call around and see if you can find it, it's a better quality med in my mind!
If you want the Sandoz brand today, you have to order Northstar clonazepam. Sandoz supplies it to Northstar.
