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.
Known as Levonelle in the UK

Plan B One-Step is an OTC emergency contraceptive medication used to prevent pregnancy after unprotected sexual intercourse. Medications like this are often referred to as "morning after pills" and used to prevent a pregnancy from beginning. The Plan B One-Step tablet needs to be taken within 72 hours of having unprotected sex, but most women will be taking it the day immediately following given the importance they place on not becoming pregnant. This medication works by temporarily delaying ovulation so that sperm do not meet an egg like they would if this emergency contraceptive is not used.
You can buy Plan B One Step without a prescription, and your best Plan B One step price will be when your order medication online from Canada Pharmacy.
Take one single tablet by mouth with water within 72 hours of having unprotected sex

Medication is only to be used for a single episode of unprotected intercourse, and you will need to use a barrier contraception method until your next period. Wait 5 days after using emergency contraception medication before you resume use of hormonal birth control methods. Do not exceed dosage regulations of 1 tablet at one time, and be aware that this medication is an emergency contraceptive and is not used for ongoing birth control.
Be aware that unprotected sex not only increases the chance of unplanned pregnancy, but also puts you more at risk for STIs (sexually transmitted infections)
