my doctor prescribed 5mg of mylan 345 2 * 2 times a day and then switched it to 2 * 2 times a day to 5mg zenith 3926 both diazapam I am confused by the switch as she swithched before I was even out of the first one. Can anyone tell me why?
Well of course there isn't supposed to be a difference. But there sure is, and that's very astute of you to notice it too. I first noticed the difference in generic brands of Benzos about 15 years ago. When it comes to the Benzos, Valium, Ativan, Xanax etc. the generic brand Mylan are stronger than even the Name Brand is. Although I thought Zenith was 1 of the better ones that isn't Mylan. However, you can't beat Mylan if you want a strong version of the drug. And since doc's are reluctant to give out Benzos, the stronger the better, that way you can use a little less and make them last longer. But it's tough if you get used to Mylan and then you're handed a bottle of weak Valium. It just doesn't cut it.
The fact that this is true just to goes to prove, once again, that not all generics are equal. They are supposed to be. But they are not.
