I have some pills that supposedly are 10 mg diazepams, but there are no markings on them, and most unusual, no line down the middle to break them in half. This makes me wonder if it another dosage, like 5mg, or something else entirely.

They are from the company Terapia in Romania (eastern europe), which might mean thattheir pills are as generic as they come, which could explain the lack of any score.

 Has anyone ever seen diazepam pills without any imprints whatsoever?

 Thoughts?

 

Thanks!

Terapia Diazepam

Hi wingsofwax,

I notice you asked the same question several weeks ago and no one answered:

http://www.pharmer.org/node/11576

It's really impossible to identify an unmarked tablet without lab testing. And you're right - diazepam is usually scored.

We have a few images of foreign diazepam that don't have imprints but I think they are all scored. You might want to check them out:

[edited by me to add more info]

Here's a better link:

http://www.pharmer.org/images/foreign?page=8

Start with that page and look at the two following pages also.  And notice that the Bensedin made in Serbia has no score and no marks.

No

Have not seen what you are talking about. Mine are blue, scored and has a 10 on it.

Diazepam

Yes, I actually looked through your gallery and saw the pictures of the Serbian diazepam, so I guess it is very possible that these pills are the real deal, since they do come from the same area.

 Thanks for the help.

Diazepam

Tiedyed65, you do not say what brand or, if generic, manufacturer makes the blue, scored diazepam you are talking about. There are literally HUNDREDS of companies worldwide who make diazepam tablets of 10mg strength. Although most 10mg tablets ARE blue, there is a green one (Mylan, NOT recommded!) and a brownish one (Lederle), as well as the well-known Fabop FABOTRANIL (this too is a very good brand) from Argentina which is a tan/buff colour. I know of at least five that are white with no markings whatsoever, and many more white 10mg diaz with various markings, best-known probably being the Roche-licenced (They get in everywhere) VALIUM by Nicholas Piramal.

Kirby, here follows a couple of brands and generics which are NOT scored at all.

Galenika's BENSEDIN is probably the best-known. There are images on the site. Bensedin is a very high-quality diazepam and is the largest-selling Serbian brand by a long way.

TERAPIA/ROCHE generic (licenced) are Romanian and are legendary; or were before Roche poked their nose in. These two fit the description and are both excellent.

There is as well a generic, made also in Serbia by Panfarma, which are absolutely awful. They can be found offered for sale at ridiculously low prices. Unfortunately they feel more like about 5 - 6mg. If that! - despite box and blister stating clearly that they are 10mg diazepam.

I have no hesitation in recommending Bensedin and Terapia as top-class diazepam. Watch out for scammers though; it has been known for some unscrupulous vendors who send loose tablets to deliver Panfarma's dreadful weak tablets when you have ordered Bensedin. You can tell the difference though; Panfarma are a lot softer, and do not have the shinier coating of Bensedin. Otherwise they look almost identical, there being only a difference of around a millimetre in diameter between the two.

I have no idea where you heard that there are no unmarked white diazepam tablets. These three are just the best-known and most frequently encountered, and, as I said, Bensedin and Terapia are excellent quality. I use both, and consider them better than the average Roche VALIUM brand. IMO, only the (blue) APAURIN, by the Slovenian company Krka-EU, are better than Bensedin.

Thanks

That was a very helpful reply, Gaucho!

 These pills are most likely what I was told they were, since they do have a glossy coating, and as you say, Terapias diazepam are unscored. 

Thank for the help!

Terapia

I have had two sorts. One was white, round and rounded top and bottom. No markings what so ever from serbia. They were very strong, very nice .

I got some more from croatia supposed to be by terapia. They were Round, scored one side and looked better made. No markings again. They were normal 10 mg diazepam.

These  get and are very good quality.

There are photo's on here of them. They are round, no markings and rounded top and bottom. Without blister pack they are very hard to recognise. Could be mints if you didn't know.

re:

Diazepam
Generic Name: Diazepam (diazepamum)
Strength: 10 mg
Manufacturer: Galenica, Serbia
Trade Name: Bensedin (Valium)
Type: Antianxiety
Comment: No imprint, no scoreline, just a white pill that looks like it was dextrose. Hard to identify if not blistered.

Can you get scored terapia?

Can you get scored terapia? White round, no markings, but score line down them. Not the same as bensedin. Flatish top and bottom
