I only take the generic and I have had no problems.
Thanks for the feed back. I will continue with taking the generic.
There's an excellent post somewhere on here by Ryan whatever his number is. Try to find it.
Interesting. The generic I have been given is from a company call BARR. I guess I'm going to have to stick with it because Kolonopin no longer makes the .25 wafers as I'm told. Will have to see how things go.
Thanks all for your responses.
Thankk for this info. As always your comments are appreciated. I have to say I do prefer the brand name wafers simply because they for one taste better and are easly able to split. The generic I have found are like chaulk and taste horrible. I did inquire with the pharmacist at CVS and they were adament that the .25 wafers are no longer being made. I'm wondering at this point who I can contact. I will continue my search for them and continue to take the generic since that is all I have for now.
Once again thank you for you info
Be Well All,
After my last post I ended up contacting Roche in NJ and did verify that they are no longer manufacturing the wafer. So for those of you who are currently taking them, you will end up as I having to take the generic form at some point. Thanks to Ryans post I do feel much more relieved in knowing that...
" there are no inconsistencies between the brand and generic wafers. The wafers have little room for error, as they are very rapidly absorbed." (Hope you do mind me quoting you Ryans :) ).
Thanks Again Ryan.
I have always been on the generic and haven't had a problem with it...
While Ryan has excellent advice - Roche DOES NOT make any wafer officially and announced the discontinuation on August 19th. What was out there was recalled in June for being sub-potent. I too have struggled to find the best generic to taper off - Par is a sugar pill - Teva (Barr) seems closer to the brand but for me - hits hard but doesn't seem to last as long. My body can't deal with the tablets. I refuse to go the valium route but would be interested if anyone has had success with any other generic wafer.
