General Information on Fostimon
Fostimon is used to treat infertility due to certain causes in women. It is given to women who have polycystic ovary syndrome or those who are going through a conception treatment process such as GIFT, IVF or ZIFT.
Active ingredient in the medicine is Urofollitropin, and it belongs to the category of gonadotrophins. It is given to the patient in the form of an injection.
The medicine works by stimulating the patient’s ovary to produce eggs. Once the follicles have developed, the patient is given human chorionic gonadotrophin or HCG to encourage ovulation. In this way, pregnancy is attained with Fostimon.
Usually, patients would buy Fostimon if they have already tried Clomiphene treatment, but could not meet success in attaining pregnancy.
Side effects of Fostimon
Your doctor will not recommend you to buy Fostimon if you are suffering from uterine or breast cancer, ovarian cancer, tumors in hypothalamic or pituitary glands of brain, ovarian cysts, malfunctioning ovaries, enlarged ovaries, undiagnosed vaginal bleeding, physical defects in cervix, fallopian tubes, ovaries or uterus, blocked fallopian tubes, premature menopause or uterine fibroids. This medicine is also not meant to be used by women who have got their uterus removed by hysterectomy.
If you become pregnant with Fostimon treatment, you may have more risks of attaining multiple pregnancy or ectopic pregnancy. Chances of miscarriage or an abortion are also higher than normal. Therefore, you should be mentally ready for these and talk to your doctor about the risks involved and precautions to take.
Women may commonly experience headache, bloating, constipation or ovarian hyperstimulation during Fostimon treatment. Local area reaction can also occur, identified by pain, redness or swelling at the injection site. These side effects can be easily managed with or without medical help. But inform your doctor promptly if any of these become too troublesome.
Inform your doctor immediately if you develop lethargy, excessive dizziness, mood changes, hyperthyroidism, difficulty breathing, erythema, nosebleeds, pruritis, breast pain or enlargement, increased bleeding period, hot flushes, fatigue or urinary tract infection. These may be signs of a serious underlying condition and needs to be treated as soon as possible.
In some cases, the medicine may lead to blood clots in the blood vessels. This may lead to a condition termed as thromboembolism.
Dosage of Fostimon
Fostimon 75 or 150IU injection is given to the patient subcutaneously. The dosage recommended to you will depend on your age, severity of your condition, other medical conditions you are suffering from and other treatment procedures you have already undergone.
Usually, the injection is given in your abdominal region or on the front part of your thigh.
Drug Interactions of Fostimon
As you are trying to get pregnant with Fostimon treatment, stop using any barrier form or hormonal contraceptives. Also tell your doctor about any other hormonal medicines you are taking at present, as they may change hormonal levels in your body and may affect the way Fostimon is designed to work.
Apart from these, inform your doctor about all the prescription drugs or over-the-counter medicines you are taking at present. Depending on these, your doctor will be able to decide whether Fostimon is the right medication for you or not.

What is a "Generic" medication/drug?
Generic drugs are medications that have the comparable medicinal ingredients as the original brand name drug, but which are generally cheaper in price. Nearly 1 in 3 drugs dispensed are "generic". They undergo comparative testing to ensure that they are the same as their "brand" counterparts in:
- Active Ingredient (e.g. "Pravastatin" is the active ingredient in brand name Pravachol)
- Dosage (e.g. 10 mg of the active ingredient)
- Safety (e.g. same or similar side effects, drug interactions)
- Performance (e.g. 10 mg of a "generic" can be substituted for 10 mg of the "brand" and have the same therapeutic result)
- Intended use (e.g. both "generic" and "brand" would be prescribed for the same conditions)
What this means is that "generic" medications can be used as a substitute of their brand equivalents with comparable therapeutic results. There are a few exceptions (examples are outlined at the end of this page) and as always you should consult your physician before switching from a brand name medications to a generic or vice versa.
What differences are there between generic and brand?
While generics and brand equivalent drugs contain comparable active ingredients, they may be different in the following ways:
- Appearance (e.g. the scoring or markings)
The color, shape and size of the medication come from the fillers that are added to the active ingredients to make the drug. These fillers that are added to the drug have no medical use and do not to change the effectiveness of the final product. A generic drug must contain comparable active ingredients and must be comparable in strength and dosage to the original brand name equivalent. Generic drugs can be more cost effective than purchasing the brand name.
Why do generics cost less than the brand name equivalents?
When a new drug is "invented", the company that discovered it has a patent on it that gives them the exclusive production rights for this medication. Once the patent expires in a country, other companies can bring the product to market under their own name. This patent prevents other companies from copying the drug during that time so they can earn back their Research and Development costs through being the exclusive supplier of the product. After the patent expires however, other companies can develop a "generic" version of the product. These versions generally are offered at much lower prices because the companies do not have the same development costs as the original company who developed the medication.
The main thing to realize here though is that the two products are therapeutically comparable. They may look different, and be called something different, but they are required to be have the same active ingredient.
How are Generic drugs tested to ensure quality and efficacy?
The two most generally accepted methods to prove the safety of a generic version of a drug are to either repeat most of the chemistry, animal and human studies originally done, or to show that the drug performs comparably with the original brand name drug. This second option is called a "comparative bioavailability" study. During this type of study, volunteers are given the original drug, and then separately later the generic drug. The rates at which the drug is delivered to the patient (into their blood stream or otherwise absorbed) are measured to ensure they are the same. Because the same active ingredient is used the major concern is just that it delivers the common chemical(s) at the same rate so that they have the same effect. Please note that the methods that the manufacturers use may vary from country to country.
