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.


Seasonique is a prescription medication used as a contraceptive method or for treating amenorrhea (absence of menstrual periods) and regulating menstrual cycles. It contains synthetic estrogen and synthetic progesterone.

The medication works by suppressing ovulation and thickening the cervical mucus, which makes it harder for sperm to reach the egg, thus preventing pregnancy. Unlike many other oral contraceptives, Seasonique comes in a 91-day pack with 84 active and seven inactive pills.
