I only used Mylan.

I see you are also on a valium taper. Hope it is going well. We have that in common. I tapered off valium. I did it very slowly. I'm convinced it contributed to my severe insomnia problem, but I can't prove it.

Benzos are known to contribute to Insomnia. I did a sort of Ashton taper when I went off. I did it very cautiously and my taper took two years. My psychiatrist gives no credence to the benzos contributing to my insomnia, but another doctor does. My sleep has been so atrocious since tapering and stopping the benzos, I think there is a connection.

Same for me there is a manufacturing shortage of mylan. I am afraid to take the Teva. Called lot of pharmacies and none have Myland. The name brand is about $300 a month can't afford that of course. I think it's a gradual weaning of the drug companies to eliminate them hence no mylan. First was the opiods now the benzos

Are you saying that Mylan is not going to manufacture it and just curious why afraid to take Teva?

Every pharmacy have called keep saying that there is a lack of something they need to manufacture the Mylan.. With the 10% error on either higher or lower content of active ingrediant I just don't trust them. Call me obsessive this is my own though. Better question with Mylan or Teva has the best reviews from patients
