Qualitest is making lorazepam now. you should check out their site, as this is not a hoax.  i think Qualitest is great, so i want to switch off my Ranbaxy.   I ve tried all benzos & corresponding manfacturers and have found the Brand/Trade names are the best.   I like Actavis Purepac, Qualitest, and Greenstone as the best generics in the midwest USA.  Teva and Mylan are examples of terrible generics.  The  fillers, chirality, and storage factors affect the med itself. So in theory, every generic drug is a new drug in itself.   And i find it funny how the FDA does a recall, and that is their first trial with the drug. We all know the drug manfacturers are conducting their own 'independent' studies.  Thanks for your help and listening.  Big Pharma wll come down when state measures provide [filtered word] in place of many of your drugs.   If i wasnt BP I comorbid 3major anxiety disorders, i wouldnt take a #%^*! pill.   At least have some consistency and deliver the best addictive med.  i know this site is strictly to help people, but i find it egregious not to share this enlightening info.

I think Qualitest makes the

I think Qualitest makes the worst generics on the market. I don;t know how they do it but everything they make is horrible. It is like they have the perfect way to underdose their medication exactly around the 10% limit so their drugs are still allowed on the market. I would highly advise to stay away from all qualitest products! All of them are inferior. 

If you want the best generic benzos you can't just go with one company. You really have to know your stuff and have been in the game for awhile. with xanax you always want to go with Greenstone because you are basically getting name brand with a diffrent code on the tab. Sandoz is a easy second when it comes to xanax, sandoz is equally as good as greenstone-IMO but if you want a name brand tab for a generic price Greenstone is the way to go.

Now when it comes to klonopin or Ativan(lorazepam) I would def go with sandoz or purepac. Sandoz/purepac make great generic ativan and klonopin. I don;t know why you say the teva klonopin is not that great it is way better then what qualitest makes but try to stick with sandoz,purepac or Greenstone for your benzos. 

when it comes to oxycodone 30mg tabs even 15mg tabs qualitest have to be the worst tab ever made in history. 

The actavis tab is the most potent and the mallinckrodt a second. Qualitest are horrible! The only people I know who like qualitest oxys are the people who got qualitest their first script and have been getting them for years by then you can't talk people into the fact they have been taking a inferior tab for years. 

when qualitest came out with their xanax(alprazolam) people I know cried! The tabs just did not work like the greenstone brand or the sandoz brand. I know a lady who called her doctor crying and told her about how horrible the qualitest generic was she got called in a whole new script. their were alot of complaints about the qualitest generic xanax on the forums and at the local pharmacys.

when rite-aid switched from greenstone to qualitest their customers all complained. Stick with Greenstone,sandoz and purepac. some benzos sandoz and purepac team up and make. all the xanax,ativan and klonopin are top notch made by those 3 companys. rite-aid didn;t switch to qualitest because they were better they switched because they got them cheaper. 

I have nothing good to say about Qualitest except they have sold nothing but inferior product. I can't think of one good generic they make where I can say that is a good generic. there is always another generic company who makes a way superior generic

LOrazepam

Unless You get Wyeth name brand Ativan, all the US generics stink. The 2.5 mg Argentian, & Serbian Ativan, under different names, are by far the best.

There is a klonopin tab with

There is a klonopin tab with the K cutt out of the tab I believe made but roche that are decent and there is also rivotril(klonopin) those are the only 2 foreign klonopin tabs I have seen. Sandoz makes good klonopin and I think teva makes respectable Klonopin. I would stay away from anything qualitest makes. Qualitest should be fined for having such poor gnerics on the market.Some people do not know just how bad they are because they have not tried as many diffrent brands and some people have got started on qualitest and never have tried a diffrent generic so all they know is qualitest but I will tell you from years of experience qualitest makes just junk gneric tabs, 

Pharmacys pick up qualitest brand generics because they are super cheap to buy from their whoelsalers. Pharmacys are cheap. Some good indepedently owned pharmacys refuse to carry qualitest and they actually have numerous good generics and name brand and will go as far to order whatever brand you want,.

These independent pharmacys who are not a part of a chain will get you any brand you want within 24 hours if they don't have it in-stock. The sweet thing is they have no strict house brand like some pharmacys and are not rude about ordering a patient whatever brand they want,most pharmacys will not do that for a customer they just sell the house brand they carry. Qualitest is getting more popular due to the insane low bulk price from the pharmacys wholesaler

thanks

i guess every1 responds differently to certain generics.   ive been on 12 differents benzos made by various manufacturers.  i dont want xanax, its too hypnotic for daytime functioning, even tho my tolerance is around 12 bars to get a high---thats why i take what im prescribed lol.    ativan is strictly anxiolytic.   so it works the best for me, b.c it doesnt have all the other uses some benzos might carry.    i agree on pure pac.   teva is horrible and mylan.  i cant re-iterate that enough.  i have 3 drs for my psy stuff.   im sensitive to meds yet have a high tolerance so its confounding.   anything made south of the border is garbage.  i have a good friend in diagnostics for big pharm, and they say the same.  so sandoz and caraco and all those x*#& for many people.   just a little chemistry here---every generic is different due to chirality.  so every time you pop a generic---its not the same drug as the trade name.  so understand if there are 5 manufacturers including the name brand, you have 5 different drugs in front of you.  qualitest doesnt have a filler im allergic to in it so therefore it is superior to most if not all generics for me.   if teva, mylan...work , power to you.   thats why its hilarious how i got shot down prmoting qualitest.  i know every maker on the map. they dont do this in 1st world countries in europe.   there are standards, much higher standards.   these companies in the u.s.  dont have to have an independent studies to pass fda regulations.   unless there is a recall.

best answer yet

ive been to 8 different pharmacies and have tried all they have to offer.   they dont even allow you to get Wyeth even if you pay full price, at any pharmacy in ohio.   im on ativan so there aer limited choices.  actavis purepac is good but only at walgreen and i go to rite aid and target.   target is the best pharmacy in the area.   there is even actavis-watson which is terrible.  qualitest makes my ambien and way better than teva.  the pharmacies carry teva for almost any med made now and its scary.   im  entering a class action against teva so F em.   lol  i guess what im saying choices are limited.   im already on 6 meds, so i cant just go to a different pharmacy for the best generic.

cool, good alternative

if you can get me a short list(if you have time) of independent chains in NE ohio.  im having a terrible time and if there is a pharmacy that actually wants to help me i will go there.   i hate the fact i cant find any. lol  Pharmacies  gain more money when they order a  bulk shipment they get, its just a fact.  so they dont want to order other meds on the formulary, bc they lose money and time.   they think you are drug-seeking too.   i have to make my mom go get my scripts b.c. they dont think she is just  drug addict.  there are so many hoops to jump through and if i can find a pharmacy that placates me, i will switch!

My Qualitist Clonazepam is

My Qualitist Clonazepam is the best I have seen in a long time......I have only tried APO once and Sandoz is a very good generic for klonopin and xanax. But as for ativan It just made me angry....Out of all the benzo's Klonopin is the best for what I deal with....And I have BP I and OCD. and a load of other &*&?.

thx sonic

you are in  a similar boat then.   i think ativan is the one for me.  ive had a bevy of cocktails in just 10 years.  ranbaxy is good, but i want to eat like 5 x 2/mg per day. the fda limit is 3 x 2mg a day, and thats what im prescribed.   im sick of running low so i need a more potent ativan generic ultimately.  the actavis klons get me angry.  and the valiums leave me blue as well as the actavis xanax, including the gold bars. qualitest is stronger than the average generic for me, and they have the best fillers, no cheap fillers that prolong the shelf-life, lol.    i take 6 drugs currently, and thats low compared to the  past.  here it goes:   /depression:lamicatal xr/   /mind racing at nite:seroquel xr/   /ativan: anxiety/  /Neurontin: anxiety/  /ambien:sleep/  /abilify: psychosis/delusions/     

best cockail for me.   now its just tweaking the generics and sticking to trade names b4 the 10 year patent is up and generics can be on the market.
