>Also, about 10 people on this board have complained about "fake" benzodiapines made by a company called Mylan laboratories.

Mylan is a major generic manufacturer. I used their Xanax (alprazolam) which I didn't like as an anti-social phobia med, but that's just becuase Klonopin/clonazepam is so much better for that disorder. The alprazolam works just fine for me when I need a sleeping pill once every few months.

Mylan got in some deep doo-doo for conspiring with other companies to jack up the prices of the benzos lorazepam (generic Ativan) and clorazepate (generic Tranxene) by 2000%! There was a class-action lawsuit and settlement in 2001. (I received the lawsuit notice because I had a single prescripton of clorazepate almost two year ago.)

Mylan also makes some branded drugs such as Eldepryl (very expensive brand of selgiline), and is conducting trials to receive approval to import nebivolol, a new kind of beta blocker (nitric oxide based) that's been in Europe for awhile.
