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.
Pregnyl is an injectable, highly purified preparation of human chorionic gonadotropin. It mimics the normal surge of luteinizing hormone (LH) that occurs mid-way through a normal menstrual cycle, and causes ovulation to begin.
It is the next step after follicle stimulation with Follistim AQ Cartridge (follitropin beta injection). Although follitropin beta in the Follistim AQ Cartridge causes the follicles to mature, it does not induce ovulation. Pregnyl helps to induce ovulation and release the mature egg from the follicle.
