Asking for ONFI® (clobazam) by name
Generic versions of clobazam have become available. If you or your loved one prefer to continue taking brand-name ONFI, talk to your healthcare provider and ask for ONFI to be specified in your prescription.
DISPENSE AS WRITTEN
If your healthcare provider decides that ONFI is what is best for your loved one, the provider may include the words “Dispense as written” (DAW) on the prescription or follow your state's rule for prescribing branded products.
KNOW WHAT ONFI LOOKS LIKE AND CHECK YOUR PRESCRIPTION
If your doctor has prescribed brand-name ONFI, there is a chance that the pharmacy may fill your prescription with a generic clobazam instead.
A generic version of clobazam may look very similar to brand-name ONFI. If your doctor has prescribed ONFI, make sure to check the medicine when you receive it to determine if you've been given brand-name ONFI as prescribed by your doctor or if the pharmacy has substituted a generic version of clobazam. If you think you have received generic clobazam, contact your doctor.
