Blue Vs Green Clonazepam... Plz Help Me To Know The Better Of The Two?


Hello all, I usually am given the GREEN #98 833 1mg clonazepam, but when I filled px today, she gave me the BLUE v2531 1mg clonazepam. Could someone please let me know which are known to be better?

What you really have to do is try them and see if one works better for you.

While they are technically the same medication in the same dosage, there can be fluctuations, however, what causes problems for some people might work great for you and vice-versa.


Are there any questions or comments?

Personally I have never heard of clonazepam being dispensed in a unit of 1mg; neither have I heard of or seen this drug in any other colours than peach or white.
I have been prescribed clonazepam for some years and, here in the UK, it is generally dispensed as the Roche brand, Rivotril, by far the most prescribed brand or generic in the world. I am on 2mg tds, reduced four months ago from qds. Other than the white 2mg tablets there are only the peach 500mcg strength. I am pretty sure that there is only one generic in the UK, by Auden Mackenzie, and their tablets, like those made by Galenika in Serbia, look almost exactly the same as the brand name Rivotril - white with a cross-score on the reverse. While Galenika & Mackenzie's tablets carry the strength only on the obverse, the brand has 'ROCHE 0.5' or '.2.' - the dots are to distinguish that face from 2mg Valium, which has no dots before and after the '2' & only a single score on the reverse.

I have only ever met one person prescribed 1mg as a unit dose, for which he would take 2 x 500mcg tabs. I am familiar with most of Europe and feel confident in saying there are no 1mg tablets of clonazepam available; certainly they are NOT made by Roche. As for colour, I HAVE seen an alternative to the white 2mg - light yellow 2mg CLONOTRIL by Torrent of India, a dispersible and fast acting clonazepam known as 'Bananatrils' on account of their distinctive flavour. They are also of excellent quality, as good as the Roche & Galenika products. Surely there can't be much call for 1mg clonazepam tablets? It isn't a strength that doctors would often consider, and, as I said, I've only ever heard of ONE person who was ever prescribed that odd in-between dosage. Is that the USA where 1mg tabs are made? I would imagine so; that's where most of the unusual strengths and combinations originate. Interesting. Yet it's also a country where ESSENTIAL meds, which it would be unthinkable anywhere else to deny doctors and patients, have been deemed to have NO MEDICAL USE and therefore scheduled I. I refer in particular to the analgesics Diconala (dipipanone) & H (diamorphine), which most docs would consider unthinkable not to carry at all times, being probably those with the most essential medical use of all!

Yet millions of prescriptions are issued for hydrocodone, a weak opioid antitussive made into a weak opioid analgesic by adding paracetamol (acetaminophen in the US) & sold at prices which can only be described as extortionate. Sorry. As you may be aware, I don't often get carried away but I was on a roll there and couldn't help myself... Anyway, 1mg certainly is a mild dose of clonazepam, especially as in my case where it's prescribed both as indicated and 'off-label' as a prophylaxis for panic disorder. My doc would prefer to script phenytoin, but thete is no denying clonazepam has powerful anti panic properties, whatever colour it is. You know, I'd LOVE to try the ones with the K shaped hole in them, if only one box, just for novelty value. Any idea how I could get those in the UK or would I have to come to a private arrangement and just swap with somebody over there? Min, getting carried away, but serious about the odd 'holey' pills!

The blue ones suck!!! They never work for me. Green ones are always on point. I think the blue ones have so much filler in them bc they are big for 1mg. Request the green ones

Dear SarahDeep, I'm on the 1mg of klonopin and they r green. I've been on them 4 almost 10 years now. Same dosage and color. Maybe, they gave u a different generic and that's why they look different. Sometimes, they will do that if they can't get the brand they usually get. Or, they switch companies.

They are the same thing, neither is better than the other although after being on them for 6 years, I prefer the blue ones because I let them melt under my tounge and the blue ones melt faster. Blue and green are the same things though. Hope that helps your question!

The differences between meds here in the US, and the ones overseas never cease to amaze me. But I've been on 1mg for years. Given to me by my regular primary physician. At first I was getting the green ones, and definitely noticed myself building a tolerance, then all of a sudden this Obamacare nonsense has changed the way doctors and insurance companies are allowed to care for their patients. When I went to get my meds this month the pharmacy told me that my insurance company switched which generics they give and mine will now be coming from a different manufacturer. So they are the same dose, but blue pills instead of green ones. Well I only happened upon this thread because I was looking for answers about whether or not I could actually feel a difference between the two. I'm glad I'm not the only person who says they feel one more strongly than the other. For a couple days I thought I was crazy. But taking 1mg twice a day is a very common dosage here in the states. The green ones I felt were no longer working. And after a few years on them I was almost about to ask him to up my dose thinking I'd built a tolerance. Once I tried these blue ones it felt like he already had upped the dose. But nope still 1mg pills. Which I found very confusing. But hey, if it means not having to up my dosage yet, then I'll take it. But those ones with the "K" shaped hole in the middle are not generally seen much here in the states either. For as many years as I've been on these, and known others taking them as well, I've never seen a person given these. Not even in hospitals. Its common practice here to give generics whenever possible, and if you are requesting the non generic name brand of a medication in most states your doctor has to specify that on your prescription and then justify that to your insurance company. Its all about what's cost effective, and not generally what's best for patients.

I have been on the blue ones for years and there is a difference for me. The blue ones make me feel relaxed with minimal side effects and happy dreams. The green one are horrible for me, they're giving me nightmares and a erratic heartbeat. I went to a different pharmacy and I have to see what I can do to get another prescription because I believe there will be serious consequences

I've been on 1 mg. Clonazepam generic Klonopin for 20 years. The color variations are simply different pharmaceutical companies. They are all still the same drug. I've got blue now but have taken mostly green. I see no difference in the effect of the drug. I take 4x daily. Always have. Let's me go out into the world and sometimes at home without having a Panic Attack. I have had Anxiety disorder for 40 years diagnosed. Hit at puberty. I don't know what you all take them for but I am grateful for this medicine. They tried Valium and Zanex on me. Valium I was on for years but they got to where they didn't work and Zanex forget about it. They were horrible. Klonopin saved me. I had attacks that felt like heart attacks often. I was in hospital for hyperventilating until I passed out a few times. Only had 2 in public and in a few years and a few at home but it was always in summer and I've had a few heat strokes trying to mow yard. Whatever your need for this drug I hope it helps you like it has me. I was so tired of the panic attacks when I was given this medicine I didn't know if I would ever be able to function without 3 or 4 attacks per day. It was difficult then. Hope everyone is getting the medicine you need. I'm not a big pill popper but I'm so glad for this medication.

here in the US most ones we get prescribed are 1mg and they are green or yellow in color. If you can get the 2mg they have a K cut out of the middle like the valium does by Roche the baby blue color ones. Our Klonopin here that is 2mg and K cut are a dark orange but I have had white 2mg ones as well. We have 0.5mg here too all the way up to 2mg. and I have a long tme ago was invited to a site to get the banana flavor klonopin they came in a silver bubble pop out pack and dissolved on tongue 2mg taste like banana they were best I even had and I wish I could get and good too. If you so know of a place I can get any good benzo prefer klonopin or xanax my email is below I would love for someone to sharge one site with me so I know I am not being ripped off

In India I use to get a clonazepam I.P 1mg Brand Name is Lonazep-1 from sun pharma. small wite tablet with sun written on top. It is a sublingual tablet.I don't know I only get that brand from one shop it has NRx on Top left corner and The Shedule won't match. Since the schedule has already changed but according to manufacturing date it seems like it contains another tablet. It gives a opiate like euphoria when combined with other opiates no memory loss. Usually I hate valium, alprazolam,and other benzodiazepines. But I love that tablet. I usually take pentazocine i.p 60mg/2ml combined with avil 22.5mg/2ml. But it has a very short half life and very very addictive and less potent too and antagonist too so I take it with diazepam or clonazepam(euphoria happy). but it is somewhat similar to morphine and valium combined.

I have the blue ones and I can not sleep if I take one. I've tried three different time and it's ugly to have to stay up all night without sleeping. These were given to me for Anxiety/restless legs.

I prefer the Green. A few months ago I started getting blue. There is a difference in taste. The green when I have had panic attacks out of nowhere I put under my tongue and dissolve and slow my breathing and heart rate down. It slowly dissolves and has a sweet taste. The blue taste terrible. They are like aspirin if you have an emergency as soon as in mouth crumble and choke me. When I'm already having an attack which I tend to have bad ones when trying to shop in a busy store or am in large crowds Its not always easy to get help. It's very frightening to experience and I was much more comfortable with the green ones because of this. I also do not think the blue work as well. I've been taking them for 15 years. I believe the blue have a lot of buffer in them and that is why they crumble and break apart easily. Bring back the green. :D

Look at the blue ones and the green Klonopin milligram. I live in Puerto Rico and my mom sent me mine every month. It’s very easy. If you like to vape you put it in a vape package put the vape pack inside. That was the way we always did it and you can fit in there.

I have had green, blue, and I holes and they all seem the same, but here in the U.S., most prefer blue because I think they were given blue first. Any change in a drug drives people crazy. Louis, I've only seen white 2 mg ones.

Re: Vampgirl (# 66) Expand Referenced Message

I wonder… do you also have ADD/ADHD? I see a lot of people saying the greens work way better for them and blues suck. But I have only taken mine 2 times in the past couple years (for breakthrough panic) and the blue hit me so quickly and I was instantly calmed/felt better and even nice. The green had pretty much zero effect and I even took a 2nd one n it kind of only made me feel “mellowed” out after the 2nd. Soooo wondering if ADD/ADHD or other things may play part as to which one works better with each persons brain chemistry.

Re: Pinky (# 14) Expand Referenced Message

I've been on it 20 years... sometimes I've been allowed to take 1mg 4x daily for lengthy periods of time because I was diagnosed with agoraphobia and it's a horrible "social" anxiety disorder. After being on the right meds for my other disorders Klonopin is a PRN as it's intended to be. Certain triggers or times of year I take it daily more than once at times and sometimes I only need it once a week or so... my psychiatrist prescribes it because it's the least likely to become habit-forming of the benzoids... anyway my point is that it can be used as a daily med for years and years as long as it works for you. Also, I know a lot of young people that will take prescription benzoids to get 'high' and it's easy to tell who actually has anxiety/panic disorders because I've never felt high. Just brings me down to what is considered a "normal" level. On a scale of 1 being low and 10 being high anxiety, most people wake up at a 1 or 2...I wake up at an 11 and it increases from there. Klonopin has been a God send to let me function on what seems to be a more normal state of mind and body as often as necessary.

I have been on mine for 3 years as well, it is not good for your heart. But with that being said that's a small chance for those of us who NEED this to live a normal life. For me and others who live with frequent panic attacks its worth the risk. Our quality of life is awful without these meds. There is nothing wrong with our doctors, they are actually doing what is best for our quality of life.

Agree a thousand percent. The blue 1mg ones to me have a o.25 effect. The green ones 1 mg it's 1 and done lol. Definitely stops all the panic anxiety stress in seconds . In blue ones would take 5 tablets vs 1 green.
