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.

    Merional should not be administered to patients who are allergic to menotrophin or to any of the other ingredients in the medication or in patients who have hypothalamic or pituitary gland tumors.

    In addition, Merional should not be administered to women with ovarian enlargement or a cyst not caused by polycystic ovarian disease, gynecological bleeding of an unknown cause, or ovarian, uterine, or mammary cancer.

    Merional should not be administered when a patient is unable to achieve an effective response, including:

    • In females: primary ovarian failure, malformation of sex organs that are not compatible with pregnancy, or fibroid tumors of the uterus that are not compatible with pregnancy
    • In males: primary testicular insufficiency

    • Pregnancy wastage by miscarriage or abortion occurs more frequently in patients who undergo stimulation of follicular growth for ovulation induction or ART compared to the normal population.

    • Cancers of the ovary and reproductive system have occurred in women who have received multiple infertility treatment regimens.
