My pharmacist gave me two different brands of clonazepam in the same bottle. One of them made my head spin as if I was drunk, and I was so dizzy that I could not bend over without falling. I thought I was having a stroke. I have been taking this for sleep since the 1980s and had no problem. What is the difference in the brands, or could it be the fillers used? It says it is tab teva. One has a name on the pill, but the other has a number on it
Yes, Clonazapem generics can affect you very differently. Teva generics tend to be effective, but Purepac and Apax get very negative reviews from people who take Clonazepam.
It's very strange that a pharmacist put two different types of any drug in the same bottle without consulting you. It's possible the other med in your bottle isn't even Clonazepam. Pharmacists make stupid mistakes all the time.
I'd go back to the pharmacy and complain about this error, and demand they give you a bottle of the SAME generic.
