General Information On Azurette
Azurette is a hormonal drug used for preventing a pregnancy. As an oral contraceptive, it is a combination of two hormones: estrogen and progestin.
Azurette prevents pregnancy by working in three different ways. It prevents the release of eggs or ovulation and then changes the cervical mucus so that the egg (if ovulation has already taken place) does not merge with the sperm and induce fertilization. Azurette also changes the uterine lining so that an already fertilized egg does not attach itself to the uterine lining, and implantation does not take place.
Apart from preventing a pregnancy, Azurette can also be used for rectifying irregular periods, decreasing risks of ovarian cysts, and reducing pain and blood loss during periods. Note that contraceptive pills do not provide protection against a sexually transmitted disease such as chlamydia, gonorrhea, or HIV. For that, you will have to use a barrier form of contraception such as condoms, especially if you have more than one sexual partner.
Side effects of Azurette
Vaginal discomfort or irritation, stomach bloating or cramping, dizziness, headache, vomiting, nausea, breast enlargement or tenderness, worsened/improved acne, and increased vaginal discharge may take place after the use of Azurette. Some women may also witness spotting between periods, irregular menses, or a missed period, especially during the initial few months of Azurette treatment. Although these are common side effects of the drug, you should inform your doctor or gynecologist if any of these become worse or unmanageable.
Some serious side effects of Azurette include continuous spotting, missed periods, or sudden/ heavy bleeding, dark patches on the skin or melasma, problem wearing contact lenses, unwanted body or facial hair, weight changes, or swelling of the feet or ankles. In rare cases, the drug can also lead to blood clots which may result in a heart attack, stroke, or pulmonary embolism. Inform your doctor immediately if you experience sudden dizziness or fainting, coughing up of blood, confusion, left arm, jaw, or chest pain, sudden shortness of breath, pain, warmth or swelling on the calf or groin, unusual headache, tingling, numbness or weakness in the legs or arms, slurred speech, vision changes, or weakness on one side of the body.
Seek immediate medical help if you experience severe abdominal, pelvic or stomach pain, dark urine, unusual tiredness, yellowing of the skin or eyes, or severe mental or mood changes such as suicidal thoughts, depression, or difficulty sleeping.
Dosage of Azurette
You will have to take one Azurette tablet once a day, usually at the same time each day. You may become pregnant if you forget to take even a single tablet during the month.
If you develop nausea or a stomach upset after taking the tablet, try to take it at bedtime or after supper or dinner.

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.
