I have been taking this medicine for tinnitus (I'm not joking) for 9.5 years. I was not about to try Accord or Actavis, so I have been taking the brand for a week. What a total nightmare! I found out that the old Teva is back, but I hear it's not "exactly" the same. The old one was made in the USA, the new overseas in Europe. On this brand, I get almost no sleep and terrible SI. All alone and can't really taper. Anyone have any experience with the newest Teva clonazepam since it's release? Thanks.
What is the difference between the old generic Teva and the new generic Teva (clonazepam, 1mg)?

Yes. I have the 1 and 2mg Teva. They are nothing like the old. I was taking the old Teva has I still had plenty last year. I then had to be on Amoxicillin and Augmentin for 14 days. I had been under a lot of stress caring for my elderly Mom post op.
After the course of Antibiotics, the Klonopin just stopped working and I had withdrawal symptoms. I did research and found out that these drugs can antagonize the GABA receptors and Benzo receptors. They are in the gut and brain.
I had tried the New Teva when It first came back and it did nothing. Maybe I did not give a chance. I also tried the Roche, which I did not like. This was in 2019.
Like I stated, I had plenty of the old and I was doing fine.
Fast forward to now. I tried the new Teva again back in August and it did nothing.
I started on Roche 2mg and had to add in a morning dose. I had to weigh and crush for the morning and part of the night dose. I started doing better, but realized how potent and short acting it is. Also, the weighing and crushing became too tedious. I got a Script for the .5mg Teva and that seems to be alright. I took that along with my Roche K at night. Bad move. I started waking up with panic which never happened on the Teva. Started into withdrawal this past month.
I am now trying to give the new Teva 2mg a chance. It is rough, but I am going to give it 2 weeks and see if I adjust.
It certainly has been a real drop in the medication. My brain and body are not happy, but I need to stay with it and quit switching brands.
Sorry this was long, but had to share this to let you know that it is much weaker than the original, but hopefully people will adjust to it.
Your best bet may be to contact the Teva Customer Service line @ 1 (888) 838-2872. They can likely answer your question and you can also report your side effects.
Best regards and good luck!
