Roche Klonopin, Valium, far superior to generics

In reply to Klonopin better than Clonazepam???, posted by bob on December 15, 2001, at 16:21:40

I have found that compared to the Walgreen's version of generic "Purepac" clonazepam, that the Roche laboratories "Klonopin" is superior. Also, about 10 people on this board have complained about "fake" benzodiapines made by a company called Mylan laboratories. Also, Mexico, India & Thailand are know for making "fake" benzodiazepines with less than half the potency of name brands.

I would not take any chances, especially considering that Klonopin & the other name brand Benzodiazepines made by Roche are not that expensive anyways, & if you have insurance the difference is only a $5 to $15 co-pay.
Somewhere I read that generic makers have trouble duplicating the secret formula that Roche labs made to make the Klonopin pill- after all Roche practically invented many of the benzodiazepines.

Also, the Klonopin magazine ad says that Klonopin surpasses USP requirements (manufactured to meet the highest standards).

Here is more proof about the superiority of brand name valium, which is another benzodiapine that Roche laboratories invented:
,"The proliferation of generic forms of Valium can vary quite alot in their availability. Tastetests run by your faithful author and others have proven to our satisfaction that only name brand Valium can be counted on to deliver as advertised, though some knock-offs do come close."

"This discrepancy is borne out by extensive tests by Valium's makers, which compared their drug to generic competitors using electroencephalographs (EEGs) to monitor the drug's effect on no fewer than 22 brain wave variables, and found generics seriously lacking. The FDA, in contrast, only monitored 4 EEG variables, & worse yet allowed a "leeway" of 20 minutes difference between swallowing of the pill and onset of action. To anyone with anxiety, this is far too long & encourages overdoses."
