Ask TEVA to bring back their old Clonazepam!

ProblemTEVA Pharm recently got rid of their old Clonazepam recipe in favor or Actavis' formula. Even though this drug sometimes gets a bad reputation, the TEVA brand has helped many people, including myself, for years with panic disorder, agoraphobia, anxiety attacks, seizures and even sometimes insomnia due to anxiety. The new brand simply does not work! For some its caused a resurgence of their symptoms, for others it has plain made them sick with horrible side effects. Some have experienced a return of their seizures, some a return of their anxiety and even suicidal behavior.The old TEVA brand worked, why change it?SolutionBring back the old TEVA recipe that they had for so many yearsPersonal storyI was given the actavis brand on my most recent refill. I take these to deal with my anxiety/panic disorder with agoraphobia. I thought nothing about the change, it happens. A few days later I started to fill ill, headaches, light sensitivity, vomiting, nausea, stomach cramps, extreme anxiety. I couldn't work and was sent to the ER 4 times.I had muscle twitching that kept me from sleeping, and didn't sleep for 4 days straight, this caused me to attempt suicide.Thankfully I was saved.I took a TEVA brand that I had left over and my symptoms went away with a day.I have tried every other generic there is, with no luck. I am currently on the name brand and even those are not as good as the old TEVA brand.I am off work and trying to heal, I now have 4 ER visits to pay for, and expensive name brand medicine.This is only my story, a simple google search will show there are many others.It's not fair for a company to give us a medicine that works, then take it away without warning.

Tell Teva Pharmaceuticals to keep producing Vincristine to save lives of children!

Teva has been working in the best interest of patients and offering the FDA assistance since the company was first made aware that there was a shortage being caused by manufacturing delays of the available product. Offers included importing product from other countries and to begin manufacturing in the US again as quickly as possible. We were assured they would let us know if they needed us to assist. Because vincristine is such a lifesaving medicine – and there is no reliable single supply anticipated in the near term – we will re-introduce the product and plan to manufacture it in our plant in the U.S., which provides the fastest route to market. Product will be available for patients in the U.S. as early in 2020 as possible. It is important to note that Teva has a history of being a strong, responsible corporate partner and when Teva removed vincristine from the market earlier this year there was no indication at all of a possible shortage. In fact, the company was only supplying 3% of the market and without any information to the contrary, anticipated that could quickly and easily be absorbed by the brand manufacturer supplying the other 97%. And as noted, we offered importation from other countries but were assured that was not needed. Teva takes its responsibility to patients seriously, and I encourage you to read more about our efforts in our latest social impact report: https://www.tevapharm.com/files/responsibility/teva_social_impact_report_2018.PDF
