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.

Micronor (same as NorQD)
The Micronor pill works by preventing the release of eggs from the ovaries (ovulation) and changing the cervical mucus and the lining of the uterus. Progestin-only oral contraceptives are a very effective method of birth control, but they do not prevent the spread of AIDS and other sexually transmitted diseases. M
icronor contraceptive tablets contain the active ingredient norethisterone, which is a synthetic progestogen, similar to the natural progestogens produced by the body.
You can buy a Micronor 28 pill packet online from Canada Pharmacy with hassle free shipping.
For the best results, you should take this pill on day one of your menstrual cycle (the first day of your period). Micronor contraceptive tablets must be taken every day without a break, including when you are having a period. Micronor tablets must be taken at the same time each day for them to be effective at preventing pregnancy.
If you are more than 3 hours late in taking your pill, you will not be protected against pregnancy. If this issue occurs, you should use an extra barrier method of contraception for the next two days while continuing with your normal pill taking.
