Major difference in strength of Brand Valium vs Generics


Recommended Posts

I found this part of an article and wondered if anyone and experience changing from a generic diazapam to Brand Roche Valium . I was forced to do this because Teva made me violently sick. It’s an improvement but the sedation is worrisome. Could there be a 20% difference in active ingredient. I’ve taken Mylan and Teva and never had any sedation. This Valium is MUCH stronger.

Does anyone have any knowledge or experience with the Roche brand. It is missing 2 fillers that the generics have.




n order to get a stamp of approval from the FDA, a generic medication must be "bioequivalent" to its brand-name counterpart. This means that chemically the two must be pretty much the same, although makers are allowed 20% variation in the active ingredient from that original formula. "While the FDA does allow for up to 20% wiggle room, in reality the observed variation is much smaller, 4%," says Dr. Choudhry.
