That's handy because Actavis are
COX which were bought by Alphapharm which in turn were acquired by Actavis and this happened maybe 10 years ago or so. That's why the pill looks identical with the markings if I recall the front have DA | 2 - White, DB | 5 - yellow, DC | 10 - blue. With the other side being blank and no longer has COX imprinted in to them for obvious reasons. So if you ever come across "COX" they are fake and have been for some time.
Teva are an Israeli pharmaceutical company and make quality pharmaceuticals, in fact they all do. I really don't see what difference it makes, I really don't. They are all generic anyway are they not? Valium as a brand don't exist any more right? At least that's my understanding.
Since this is the US we are talking about and not the UK I can't really think of any manufacturers apart from Mylan
, that's all I can think of in the US. There are many
pharmaceutical companies both international and domestic but there are even more who simply repackage.
All reputable pharmaceutical manufacturers will produce quality products and they are obliged to follow the standards of the United States Pharmacopoeia and National Formulary so I really don't think it's going to make that
much difference. The only thing I can think of is the cost, I was horrified when I learned that someone pays $1 for one single 1mg generic aplrazolam tablet at a pharmacy, I had no idea
it was so expensive. Cost is not an issue in the UK but the same standards must be followed only we have to follow the British Pharmacopoeia. That being said people do have their preferences and if it's placebo or real then what's the harm. I know I preferred Sandoz temazepam
to the alternative which was called "Generics Pharma" or something, I can't find it on Google because the results are all about generics generally and not about the name, those in the UK may be familiar with the tablets with a G on one side, well those ones.
