Phil, I refilled my clonazepam (generic) yesterday, and it was written for .5mg tabs 3x daily (90qty.). I only take one of those at bedtime so I don't refill it very often. Anyhow, they changed bottles and had a new labeling system that shows the pill on the side of the bottle with a description (as part of the label). Anyhow, instead of .5mg tabs I got 1.0mg tabs instead! The manufacturer is "Caraco" instead of "Mylan". They are light blue and scored with a #1 on one side and #274 on the other. Are those the right ones? I thought perhaps they ran out of the .5mg and instead of hassle with ordering cheap meds and they just gave me the 1mg instead (qty. 45). But.. they gave me a full 90 of the 1mg tabs instead. Whatever! I guess I got away with twice the medication for the same price-I ain't saying anything, but I wonder if you or anybody else can confirm these are 1mg generic clonazepam tabs? Thanks for any help!
