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.

      • If you are pregnant or breastfeeding
    • If you become pregnant, Kyleena should be removed.
    • Infections can occur after insertion of Kyleena.
    • Your risk of PID should be considered before Kyleena is inserted.
    • Uterine perforation can occur which can interfere with how Kyleena works. It may also require surgery.
    • Kyleena may be partially or completely dislodged and may go unnoticed, which can prevent it from working properly.
    • Any enlarged ovarian follicles or cysts should be evaluated.
    • Changes in menstruation can occur.
    • Kyleena can be safely scanned with MRI if certain conditions are met. Tell your doctor that you have Kyleena IUD before undergoing any procedures or diagnostic tests.
