Which is better Teva or Mylan Valium?

Posted by Phillipa on October 4, 2019, at 22:19:54

Taken mylan for many many years but can no longer get it as something about the company not having what is needed to manufacture it. So is Teva better or worse? If I were to purchase the brand name would be about 3-4 hundred dollars a month. Thanks pretty straight forward question

I can't comment on diazepam, but it is almost universally accepted that Teva was much better than other drug companies for the manufacture of generic lamotrigine (Lamictal). I can attest to that. I tried both Teva and Mylan lamotrigine. At some point, Teva no longer manufactured their own lamotrigine. They sold a product that was manufactured at a factory that they had bought from another company. People clamored for the original Teva product. They might be back to manufacturing their own now. I don't know.

Scott when googling this same question. I saw that many did prefer the Teva. I know that Mylan is the company with the medication that is tainted. Is it a blood pressure pill? Too many companies are being sold to other companies than sell to another company. Not good at all. Thanks !!

Joe was hoping you would answer as knew you were starting The Teva. So it works as well or does it work better than Mylan? Seems out of all the pharmacists that have asked that no one really knows. So no withdrawal as read that on some sites? Teva is weaker or stronger or same as break my pills? thanks

You mentioned this before a headache one I've not heard before. So no headache with Teva so that is a plus. Joe what decade of life are you in as after age 70 the body metabolizes medications much more slowly so doses of meds are reduced?

I'm a lot older than you are hence the amount of meds need to be reduced. Liver doesn't metabolize as well as used. So lower doses are prescribed. Thanks

Teva seems like a decent generic, judging by their xanax and lamictal. If I recall correctly, the generic has had a good reputation on babble.

Yes, weve been out for three days. Better than fire. PG&E should invest in underground cables. The traffic lights were out yesterday, backing up traffic. Today I hear is better, although I havent been out yet. Need to charge my phone at a cafe.

I agree with SLS that Teva is probably better.

But you never know. In my own journeys I found that sometimes brand was better than generic, and sometimes generic was better than brand, and sometimes one generic was better than another generic.

And so I think you just have to try different ones to see how it goes for you. Maybe request that your prescription order be filled in pieces rather than the whole thing at one time, requesting a different manufacturer for each trial, so you don't have to waste an entire month trying just one of them. For example, you could fill 10 days worth of your month with one company, the next 10 days from another, and the last 10 days from another one. Since it is a Benzo you should be able to tell within 1 to 4 days how it is working, I think.

You can request your pharmacy to fill your order from various manufacturers of your choice not theirs. I have done that.
