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 is a medication that is prescribed to treat adult women who have infertility problems and have not achieved a response with clomiphene citrate. It is used to encourage the development of follicles in patients who are undergoing assisted reproductive technologies (ART), such as in-vitro fertilization (IVF), gamete intrafallopian transfer (GIFT), and zygote intrafallopian transfer (ZIFT). It may also be accompanied by human Chorionic Gonadotropin (hCG) to stimulate the production of sperm in men who have congenital or acquired hypogonadotropic hypogonadism.

Merional is available in a powder and solvent solution for injection.
