I can only tolerate half of a 0.5mg clonazepam every 12 hours. Would this be the same for the brand name?
How are you?
I take the generic 1mg and it works fine for me and plus I save money, and honestly it works the same
For me brand works, not generic. But today pharmacy told that they stop do it
I firmly believe generic Clonopin does not work as well as namebrand. When taking generic they almost feel like I need double the go to cure my anxiety.
Brand name Klonopin by Roche compared with any generic version of is like comparing a BMW with a Ford. The difference is unbelievable. Get brand name whenever your budget allows it
They are all the same chemical structure. Only thing is some companies cut corners to save money.
My husband is a pharmaceutical technician, and has told me that, legally, the brand name and generic medications have to contain the same ingredients, same potencies, and the same exact chemical makeup.
I'm sure there are some exceptions, and the laws may not be the same everywhere. But it may be something to keep in mind. I hope this helps.
I have been on Klonopin for years for panic attacks, anxiety and stress! My doctor recently authorized for me to have the brand name, instead of the generic I usually received every month. I noticed a big change! Good luck to all
I take much more but only when needed and they can last according on the generic brand up to 3 days without having to take anything for social anxiety. But everybody is so different. Like I may take 4mg at one time. I do not get warm and fuzzy or act different but stress is not a problem. I lead meetings and am a lead engineer and have to be sharp minded every day, but at the same time have to deal with a lot of people etc... So my usage is based on when I have meetings or public speaking. I usually take something again before 3 days without. But have noticed that some generics will not last 3 days and just really have no affect at all. I'm paying more for the name brand this afternoon just as a trial and error and can only answer this after a few days, or actually at the end of the month.
Just remeber the FDA only has makes generic brands meet 80% of the actual ingredient(Klonopin) and then how often do they check each shippment comming in from other countries??? Kind of scary. It could be 10% mixed with Bananas and Squash :) . Please ask this question again in about a month and I'll give my findingand will attempt taking in different quantities etc... Ask around 4-14-2019 and if I see the question I'll give you my break down of what I find.
I think I can answer this... I've been on Clonazepam for many,many years. The generic brand Teva worked great, never an issue. I was on that all these years, then suddenly they no longer manufactured it. This started a major problem for me. I was forced to use different generics that did absolutely nothing to help, some even put me in withdrawal. My Doctor finally put me on Roche name brand Klonopin. I am doing so much better, and no adverse side effects. Anyone who tells you "they're all the same", is simply ignorant.
I hate to say this, but stay away from these forums to anyone who is worried that the generics don't work as well. They will mess with your mind via the Placebo Effect! I had a conversation with the pharmacist the other day and she told me that Generics HAVE to be within a margin of around ~ +/- 3% ~ Bio-availability of their brand name counter part. If anyone is getting all the money it's clearly ROCHE! Everyone seems to be flocking to them for comfort since the generics aren't working.
However, I will say that everyone IS different and our bodies react differently to medication formulas so take it with a grain of salt. Don't let the placebo effect get the best of you. If I switched to Roche from TEVA brand 1mg pills ( I take 3mg a day ) it would cost me almost 35 times what I am paying now; no insurance.
Honestly, why are there so many complaints for Clonazepam? Usually, people are picky about Xanax.
