What is Generic?

What is a Generic Drug?

A generic drug is a copy of the brand-name drug with the same dosage, safety, strength, quality, consumption method, performance, and intended use. Before generics become available on the market, the generic company must prove it has the same active ingredients as the brand-name drug and works in the same way and in the same amount of time in the body.

The only differences between generics and their brand-name counterparts is that generics are less expensive and may look slightly different (eg. different shape or color), as trademarks laws prevent a generic from looking exactly like the brand-name drug.

Generics are less expensive because generic manufacturers don't have to invest large sums of money to develop a drug. When the brand-name patent expires, generic companies can manufacture a copy of the brand-name and sell it at a substantial discount.

Desogen is a birth control medication available by prescription and used to prevent pregnancy when women choose to have unprotected sex with their partner. It is a combination birth control pill with both progestin and estrogen hormones, and it works by preventing the release of an egg from the ovary as well as thickening the cervical mucus and uterine lining so that any egg that might still be released has no chance of being fertilized by sperm. Using oral contraceptives like Desogen is also known to make periods more regular and less uncomfortable for women. Buy Desogen from Canada and Canpharm and get the best price on it.

What is Contraception?

Contraception is the act of preventing a woman from becoming pregnant, and it can be achieved by use of RX birth control medications but IUDs, birth control patches, birth control shots, and barrier methods like condoms can also be used for contraception. The only method that offers reliably 100% effective birth control is abstinence, but most oral contraceptives are reported to be up to 99% effective.
