Does Tiva now own Actavis?

Hi After 3 months bad experience with Tiva changed to Actavis from Boots the Chemist.

Just read something online re Teva business now in trouble and laying off staff further to this it was said trouble was as a result of taking over Actavis.

Has anyone else any info re this news ans more importantly are Actavis now Tiva?

Really worried my Actavis may be made by Tiva!

Kind regards kate

Yes, the aquisition took place in 2016

I'm hoping the Actavis Levo forumula wont change.

The formulation did recently undergo some tweaking - reading between the lines it was to improve the physical quality. In the past, I regularly found I could not get all 28 tablets out of the blister pack without breaking at least one. More recently, none have broken. Whether the ingredients changed at all, or if this was just the settings of the pressing machine, I couldn't possibly say. :-)



Teva own Actavis and a number of other brands. Why is that a problem?


Problem is felt really ill on Teva as many others have also reporte so changed to Actavis

Hoping Teva do not manufacture Actavis dont want to feel so ill again

Teva do NOT own the UK Actavis Generics company. They did, transiently, but it was part of the whole deal and regulatory approval process that they disposed of the Actavis Generics business.

It is unclear whether Accord will re-brand any products - but they do not seem to have changed any so far.


Accord Healthcare is one of the fastest growing generic pharmaceutical companies in the UK & Ireland and has an extensive supply chain through its four UK based sites, helping to ensure a consistent supply of life-saving medicines for patients, whilst supporting customers to react quickly to dynamic market conditions.

Acquiring Actavis UK and Ireland in 2017 facilitates Accord’s aim to become the largest supplier of generic medicines in the UK & Ireland and a leading player in the industry at European level.
