I have read & heard that the generic Mylan brand of diazepam doesn't work as it should. My insurance will not cover the brand name & it's pretty expensive. What other generic brands are out there that DO work? I use CVS as my pharmacy
Hi MDgirl, Here's a link to view the different strengths and manufacturers of Valium. I agree that the Valium does work best. There's also Barr pharmaceuticals but haven't heard much about them. There's at least 3 pages of different ones. Hope this helps!
Mylan does not work for my mom who takes it once in a very great while and Xanax is also prescirbed by Mylan and I cannot tolerate anything made by Mylan, just a minute let me get up and look at the medication bottle and see if I can find the manufacture--I am so very very sorry I thought the drug manufacture was listed but it isn't, this won't help but its worth a try have you ever taken another generic other than Mylan? talk to the doctor, Roche was the first that came out with Valium, I don't know whether your insurance would pay for that brand or not, my guess is probably not but tell the doctor exactly what you have explained about the effects of the Mylan brand, maybe he can discuss tis with the pharmacist and together they can find a brand that you can tolerate, I wish you the very best, please take good care
I am a retired RN. I have anxiety as well as extremely severe panic attacks with PTSD. I have been prescribed diazepam 10mg but Walgreens only carries Mylan and I refilled my prescription on the 7th and yesterday saw an insect (I have a crippling phobia of them) and took my diazepam. NO relief. Took another. NO relief. Took 6 more. No relief. Took 6 more. No relief. I have been awake over 48 hours. I am going through Benz withdrawal. I have been getting drug screens since I have suspected that the Mylan brand is fraudulent and out of 6 tox screens 3 showed no benzodiazepines. I realize that Mylan can get away with their fraud because of the placebo effect that some people succumb to. They won't try it on a cardiac or diabetic drug. I ran into this problem with another drug company after getting oxycodone 5mg after surgery.
I was in severe pain and finally realized that the pills were fake. I took 35 pills and saved 5 for analysis. I had a drug screen done the next day. NO drug detected. My son is an attorney. We had the pills analyzed, sued and we won. What generic brands are more reliable regarding diazepam?
