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.

Description

Liletta is a long-acting intrauterine device (IUD) indicated for pregnancy prevention for up to six years. It may also be used for the management of heavy or irregular menses.

It is a small, T-shaped device inserted into the uterus by a healthcare provider. The device contains a synthetic progestin hormone called levonorgestrel, which is slowly released into the uterus to prevent pregnancy.

Liletta prevents pregnancy by thickening the cervical mucus and preventing ovulation. Thickening of the cervical mucus prevents sperm from entering the uterus.

Directions

Liletta should only be inserted by a trained healthcare professional.

After 3-6 years, Liletta should be removed, and women can opt for a new device if they wish to continue contraception.

Ingredients

The active ingredient in Liletta is levonorgestrel.
