Terms & Conditions of Program
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.
Levora (generic name Nordette-28) is a combination birth control pill usually prescribed to females to prevent pregnancy. However, many patients use oral contraceptive pills like Levora for the noncontraceptive benefits, which may include:
Levora works by suppressing ovulation preventing the release of a fertile egg. It also thickens the cervical mucus, preventing entry by spermatozoa.
You should take one tablet each day at the same time, as directed on the pack unless otherwise directed by your physician. Missing a pill will greatly increase the chances of getting pregnant, so Levora must be taken every day. Take the pills in order and do not skip around in the pack. The placebo pills are designed to be at the end of a normal ovulation cycle to simulate regular menses.
Levora contains 21 active tablets and 7 placebo pills. The active tablets each contain 0.15 mg of levonorgestrel and 0.03 mg of ethinyl estradiol.
Levonorgestrel is a synthetic progestin that suppresses gonadotropin hormones involved in the process of ovulation. Levonorgestrel binds to androgen and progesterone receptors to decrease the release of GnRH (gonadotropin-releasing hormone) from the portion of the brain that regulates hormone release, the hypothalamus. Decreasing GnRH causes a subsequent decrease in luteinizing hormone (LH), preventing the required LH surge that normally leads to ovulation.
Ethinyl estradiol is a synthetic estrogen that works in conjunction with levonorgestrel to prevent GnRH secretion. Estrogen binds to estrogen receptors in many tissues including the reproductive tract, mammary gland, and hypothalamus. Synthetic estrogen is typically added to contraceptive tablets to prevent androgen-like side effects from synthetic progestin alone.
Levora is CONTRAINDICATED in the following situations:
Levora and other combination contraceptives can increase the risk of clots. Speak with your physician if you have a personal or family history of stroke, heart disease, deep vein thrombosis, or pulmonary embolism. Do not take oral contraceptives if you are over the age of 35 and smoke tobacco products as it may significantly increase the risk of clots.
Potentially serious and rare Levora side effects may include:
