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.

    Description

    Prevent Pregnancy with Levlite:

    Chemical Name: LEVONORGESTREL(LEE-voe-nor-jess-trel)and ETHINYL

    Levlite (levonorgestrel/ethinyl estradiol)

    Levlite birth control is a combination hormone medication for warding off pregnancy. This medicine contains two hormones which are progestin and estrogen. This birth control pill functions by stopping the release of an egg during the body’s menstrual cycle. Furthermore, this medication also helps to make the vaginal fluid become thicker to prevent any sperm from reaching the egg. The lining of the uterus is also changed to prevent the fertilized egg’s attachment. The fertilized egg, due to remaining unattached, is expelled from the body.

    Levlite birth control can also be used for maintaining regular periods, decreasing the risk of ovarian cysts as well as for decreasing the intensity of painful periods.

    You can buy Levlite from Canada Pharmacy and have it delivered to you.
