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.

  • Product Details


    Liletta is a long-acting intrauterine device (IUD) designed for pregnancy prevention for up to six years. It is also utilized in the management of heavy or irregular menstrual periods.

    This small, T-shaped device is inserted into the uterus by a trained healthcare provider. Liletta contains a synthetic progestin hormone known as levonorgestrel, which is gradually released into the uterus to prevent pregnancy.

    Liletta operates by thickening the cervical mucus and inhibiting ovulation. This thickened mucus hinders the passage of sperm into the uterus.


    Liletta should only be inserted by a qualified healthcare professional.

    After 3-6 years, Liletta should be removed, and if individuals wish to continue contraception, a new device can be inserted.


    The active ingredient in Liletta is levonorgestrel.
