Every time I go see my psychiatrist I am perscribed 1mg of Clonazepam. Everytime I fill my script I recieve a different looking pill. Do all the colors of Clonazepam 1 mg do the same thing or is one more stronger than the other? The imprint on the one im taking now is TEVA 833
My question pertains to the different varieties of Clonazepam 1 mg?

Pill imprint TEVA 833 has been identified as Clonazepam 1 mg. Clonazepam is used in the treatment of anxiety; bipolar disorder; panic disorder; seizure prevention; periodic limb movement disorder (and more), and belongs to the drug classes benzodiazepine anticonvulsants, benzodiazepines. There is positive evidence of human fetal risk during pregnancy.
Clonazepam 1 mg has a low potential for abuse. The drug has a currently accepted medical use in treatment in the United States. Abuse of the drug may lead to limited physical dependence or psychological dependence relative to the drugs in schedule 3.
Since the active ingredient is now off patent so many companies manufacture Clonazepam, all the pills in an any approved color would have the same function. The strength of the pill is ascertained by the contents of the active ingredient it contains, colors have nothing to do with strength, it is perhaps meant for identification.
