If your looking for proper benzodiazepines for your anxiety and or sleep etc please do not get the Antenex. After being on the original brand Valium for 3 months I was given the generic brand Antenex. And let me tell you it is really bad. Chronic migraines, lack of sleep, rebound anxiety, close to having seizures as I have epilepsy as well. It’s is awful. It may just be me, I’m no doctor this is just what has happened to me. I have an anxiety disorder and the proper Valium helps to keep my head straight but taking this Antenex isn’t good it feels like I have had no Valium at all.
There isnt much difference due to the fact; They both contain the active ingredient diazepam. Although in some clinical trials there is evidence to support the faster absorption of "Valium" by Roche compared to its generic versions. This is believed to be due to the "non-active fillers" . In some cases, users have frequented headaches and general lack of effectiveness in generic versions of diazepam.
The color? :-)
There's no difference. Antenex is just a generic.
