I've had to increase my dosage from 3 to 4mg.since switching to the generic. I feel I come out ahead since the generic is less than half the price of the brand. I believe there are two or more manufacturers of clonazepam. I'm taking the brand made by RH(don't know what it stands for). Like I said, I did have to make a slight increase in the dosage. The generic does seem to be less potent, and there appears to be much variability among different manufacturers of the generic. Good luck! Paul
