Is anyone else having an issue with this?

I've been on Kl0n many years now. Small dose, prescribed. I've been on [email protected] brand for about a decade, maybe longer.
I've tried just about every other generic, and tried brand name a few months, and actually preferred the [email protected] Each work differently, in a matter. I'm quite sensitive to my medication, however.
Doing some research on [email protected] and the differences between other brands, it's been found that basically the only difference in ingredients is povidone. Not a single other brand has this, including name brand. Basically, from what I've gathered is that this helps make the medicine last longer, so you aren't needing to dose as often. [email protected] acquired [email protected], which made I'd say top 3 after [email protected], but I can't for the life of me understand why they would stop making their own brand and continue on with [email protected] ingredients. Not only this, but I believe they are changing it as well, so older [email protected] pills won't be the same as the new ones.
It's been about 2-3 months now, and I am having problems with it basically stop working faster. It kind of feels like a [email protected] XR or something.. hard to explain, I suppose.
Now for a question..
[email protected] is still making [email protected] So I asked my Dr. about switching, but I don't know if her conversion is correct. Let's say, I get 2mg a day of K. I've read I'd need about 20-40mg of V. Which is a big difference. I was told by Dr max would be 15mg of V. Is this correct? I've always been interested in getting prescribed V instead, but [email protected] K worked so well, I didn't want to change what wasn't broke, so to speak. Now, with this new change, I am not sure if I should give this a go. After so many years of K, will 15mg be enough?
Thank you guys.
Hope everyone is doing well!

Didn't know that [email protected] acquired [email protected] - thanks for that. As to your question about is 15mg enough- I would say every1 would be different especially with something new. maybe follow ur Dr advice here would be appropriate...………………………..good luck...………..Folken
From my experience, you will need 20mg of Valium to do what 1mg Of klonopin will do. That’s my experience and I have used them all. Actually even 20 mg of Valium wouldn’t exactly feel like that because klonopin just has a way of totally removing anxiety where Valium doesn’t. Valium dulls it whole klonopin removes is. Klonopin is a high affinity benzo.
I get away with Rivitrol Klon 2mg @ X2 or MSJ Daz 10mg @ X2 interchangeably. No issues at all and no noticeable difference, for me. Very happy about that as I was unsure about switching.
Are MSJ's any good?

I find they work fine. I usually take 15mg of premium brands but these are so small I don't bother cutting em in half. Also their roughly half the cost, so why bother.
You should be okay ratio and dose wise....But be aware of the generics you may wind up with. DO NOT, under any circumstances accept mylans generic diaz, they are notoriously bad. Ive had an MD specifically write "do not substitute" because the brand version of this is just so much better. Teva and Mayne's version should be suffice but I would just have the place you shop at order brand. They are just so so so much better.

I haven't had bad luck with any us fda generic recently. i have not gotten any infjorerior generics at all in some time now.
Hi andyb! There are conversion tables for benzos on-line and have found them to be accurate. Very interesting info about the Teva Klon's. Unlike 40 or so years ago when Valium was scripted for anxiety, it has fallen out of favor with Doc's to treat anxiety since we have K-Pins and other B's. It is still the go to med for muscle relaxant when folks dislocate joints and Doc's need that effect to enable them to relocate the joint. I don't usually recommend mixing these meds but perhaps a small 5mg dose of V may extend the effects of your K-Pins a bit? I find V, even after years of use, to cause some drowsiness and lethargy so I only use after work when I have muscle issues in lower back. I have a lot of Teva stock and it is worth half of what it was just around 5 years ago. Glad to hear they acquired Activis, maybe that will get them going again. Correct me if I am wrong but I believe they are the Worlds largest manufacturer of Generic Meds? Best Wishes Friend-FF
Ive recently suffered the coincidences of teva discontinuing what used to be a top notch generic, now im stuck with damn actavis and there just not as good.
