Medicaid will pay for brand when generic is available?!

I have generic klonopin (too lazy to go look right now) and it seems to do the trick.

Medicaid will sometimes pay for brand when generic is available, but will usually require prior authorization.

I can testify that for me, at least, the Teva generic (marked on my bottle as TEV) has been every bit as clonazepam-y as the brand. Actually (and I have taken clonazepam very rarely and for 1-3 days at a time), it seemed to last longer than the brand tablets. Never did a specific comparison test.

I've had a couple of different generic forms of clonazepam, including the Teva, and I've never noticed a difference, other than that they taste different. I'm not lucky enough to have ever been able to afford the brand name Klonopin, so I don't have much to compare it to.

Quite the contrary.

With the exception of their generic version of Wellbutrin (named Budeprion), their generics are normally viewed as exceptional, if not mysteriously like 'copies'.

Ariella,

The generic is just not working on my anxiety or akathesia.


You used to take the brand, K-hole Klonopin? (In that real Klonopin has a K punched all the way through it and the pill would be colored to indicate dosage.) Or was it another generic clonazepam? (And I think all the pills are white regardless of dosage from every manufacturer).

I've tried brand name, TEVA, Caraco, and Purepac. Stay away from Purepac - they suck really bad. Like sugar pill bad. I take TEVA, which seems to me to be the closest to the real thing in terms of keeping anxiety at bay. Not as sedating as the real K, in my experience. The Caraco is almost as effective as TEVA, but I did have a little breakthrough anxiety. Caraco is definitely sedating - almost as much as the real deal. Maybe you could call around and find a pharmacy that carries it and try it out?

Maybe different dose.?

I've had K from both Teva and Eon Labs. Both seem about the same 'cept Eon Labs is less grainy. This is the one med I just suck on. Not sure that speeds anything up, but it makes me feel like I'm doing something to help it along. :mad:

I mistakenly trusted a pharmacist into leading me to believe, though I had done extensive research on the matter, Activis was just as good as any other brand.

Wrong. It was approximately half the strength of the Teva's to me, which to my totally random figure of 85% of people that have tried Teva and Roche reportedly seeing no difference or an extremely minimal one, outside of saving forty dollars, meant that I should make it a point to stick with Teva (I've had brand Roche Klonopin long ago with no tolerance, can't say if they were better or not, outside of the fact it was like finding a little white pill that lifted 17 years of crippling anxiety off of my shoulders). I switched back to Teva, and everything is working fine again (provided I skip the caffeine and stick with my Adderall).

I've never had any other Teva brand products outside the Remeron, which I can't comment on because it was useless (believe it or not medical profession, there is such a thing as providing life-altering therapeutic value via controlled substances which are scheduled too high to start with; no side effects, maximum efficiency, highly flexible and fast acting, who would have thought it?)

The only problem I had with Teva is I was finding it was not putting me out cold or sedating me, which turned out to be the RIGHT thing that was happening, abation of persistent anxiety beats quasi first-month "I feel a little drunk" any day of the week for me.

Weeee, I like to post it up with a vigor the likes of which man cannot fathom, aren't we lucky?

I was prescribed Klonopin, and naturally got the generic on my first fill. It was a big bunch of green pills from Teva. All I can say is wtf! They have no quality control. Pills chipped easily, some weren't well packed and practically disentigrated! The dosage seems to vary from "pez is more effective" to "where am I and what's my name?", despite the fact that they're all allegedly 1mg tablets. Fortunately my insurance plan doesn't force generics. That extra $40 is a small price to pay for consistency and the ability to actually use all the pills I was prescribed. Judging from this forum, I'm not the only one that's disappointed with Teva's products.

Actually the only problem with a Teva product people have had is with the Budeprion XL.

Do the pills look like this?

That reads more like something happened during distribution or at the pharmacy. The pills got too hot or even wet.

Those are indeed the pills.

I'm beginning to think you're right. I live in the hot, humid south, and air conditioners do break down. I've gotten chocolate and other candy from there that was obviously heat damaged, so I suppose it's not out of the question their shelves of a few hundred thousand dollars worth of prescription drugs got baked as well. After taking this into consideration I switched to The Other Big Chain Pharmacy across the street, so we'll see how the refill of generic clonazepam goes when it's time to refill.

As far as brand versus generic is concerned, I see no difference between the generic Teva pills that were in good shape and name brand Klonopin.

Is the general consensus here that teva's generics bite? Should they just change their name to israeli sugar pill factory.....(hey nothing against israel, i love it, my family is from there).


As a general rule, Teva is one of the best generic manufacturers out there. They're only big screw(That I'm aware of) up was the Wellbutrin generic, and that's understandable given that drug's strange metabolism. Granted, people can have pretty profound responses to subtle changes in formulation, and god knows we get a lot of those on this site. You might talk to your doctor about upping your dose by a small nudge in the mean time, to see if that can put you up to a place where you're getting the response you need.

i like teva as well and find them a fine substitute for the brand klonopin-however there are so many colors and manufacturers of clonazepam now, they come in blue 1mg and also a light green-the green says 93 over the number 833-who makes it?
also, what exactly is the problem with generic wellbutrin? i've taken it. after years of klonopin, wafers, tablets and generics, my dose has been increased and my doctor is suggesting perhaps an ssri-but i've never reacted well from them or see them as a substitute for a benzodiapene. i have had no real issues with their shelf life either. my doctor once said they're fine even past the exp date-although i do not suggest in any way that anyone follow that. ever. ask your doc.

Oh, before I forget, in regards to the poster who commented on being happy about getting medicaid so they could get the "real deal" kpins, well, choose your advantage plan wisely.
Many insurance (especially Medicare Advantage Plans) will not pay for benzos. So, I'm still stuck with the generics, but I keep them in the veggie drawer and always get them from the same pharmacy, and they seem to do okay. (Caraco) I will not buy benzos of any kind from walgreens in my town, they've got teva crap and it doesn't dissolve the same for me.
