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.

    Loestrin Uses:

    The lolo birth control pill (loestrin) is a low-dose combination birth control pill that takes a 3-way approach to reducing a woman’s chance of becoming pregnant. Using lolo birth control means the medication will prevent the woman’s ovary from releasing the egg, as well as thickening the vaginal fluid so that it is difficult for sperm to contact an egg if one is present there. 

    Lolo birth control also works by changing the composition of the uterus lining, and this makes it more difficult for a fertilized egg to implant itself in the womb. Lolo is often referred to as lolo estrogen birth control, but it actually has two hormones - estrogen and progestin - and that makes it a combination birth control medication. 

    Lolo birth control reviews suggest it is a popular and proven-effective birth control pill for women, and it can also serve to regulate the menstrual cycle or treat symptoms of menopause or other conditions as determined by a doctor.
