Basic Information On Activella
Activella is used for the treatment of mild to serious symptoms of menopause (like hot flashes, itching, dryness or burning sensation in or around the vagina). It also helps in preventing osteoporosis (weakening of bones) in females after menopause. Activella is a combination of progestin hormones and estrogen. It helps in replacing natural estrogen and progestin in women who are unable to produce enough of these hormones after menopause and can be purchased only with a doctor’s prescription.
Precautions / Side Effects for Activella
You should not take Activella if you are allergic to its main ingredients Estradiol/Norethindrone. You should consult your doctor before taking brand or generic Activella if you are pregnant or are planning to get pregnant. Also, it is important that you ask your doctor about taking the drug if you are breast-feeding. Other conditions where you should not take brand or generic Activella before consulting your doctor are if you have undetected unusual vaginal bleeding, liver problems, estrogen-dependent growths, history of blood clots, breast cancer, heart attack, stroke or other severe blood vessel problems.
The Activella drug should not be taken to prevent heart attacks, heart disease, dementia or strokes. Estrogens, with or without progestins, can increase the risk of heart disease and heart attack, dementia, stroke, severe blood clots in legs or lungs, breast cancer and cancer of the uterus in women. This medicine should be consumed for the shortest time possible and at the lowest effective dose in order to reduce the risk of the above mentioned side effects. You should consult your doctor on regular basis while taking Estradiol/Norethindrone.
Activella tablet should be taken once every day. If you are suffering from mild to severe vasomotor symptoms related to menopause, you should start with the dosage of Activella 1.0 mg/0.5 mg or Activella 0.5 mg/0.1 mg. If your doctor has prescribed Activella solely for the prevention of postmenopausal osteoporosis, he would generally start your dosage at 1.0 mg/0.5 mg or 0.5 mg/0.1 mg. For prevention of postmenopausal osteoporosis, the medicine should be given only if you have a major risk of osteoporosis. If you are suffering from mild to severe symptoms of vulvar and vaginal atrophy, your doctor may recommend the dosage as Activella 1.0 mg/0.5 mg.

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.
