General Information on Climara
Climara is a transdermal medication used for the treatment of menopause symptoms like itching, burning sensation, and dryness in the vaginal area. The generic name of Climara is estradial, which is a synthesized form of the naturally produced estrogen hormone found in women. Estrogen regulates several processes in the body.
The onset of menopause leads to decreased estrogen levels in the body. Climara works by providing estradiol to make up for the missing estrogen in the system, thus helping a woman obtain relief from some of the symptoms of menopause.
Climara is also used for the treatment of infertility in women, abnormal vaginal bleeding, and ovarian disorders. It may also be taken for the treatment of post-menopause osteoporosis and for reducing irritation and urgency of urination.
Side effects of Climara
The risk of dangerous side effects on taking Climara may increase if you suffer from a blood clotting or bleeding disorder, circulation problems, abnormal and undiagnosed vaginal bleeding, a medical history of strokes or any form of uterine, hormonal, or breast cancer. You must inform your doctor if you suffer from high cholesterol, hypertension, heart disease, angina, asthma, liver disease, diabetes, migraine, kidney disease, depression, gallbladder disease, or if you have had a hysterectomy.
Climara is a pregnancy category X drug. It is known to cause birth defects, and must not be used if you are pregnant. You must use effective birth control measures to avoid getting pregnant while on Climara. This drug is also known to slow the production of breast milk. Do not take Climara if you are in the breastfeeding stage.
Climara may cause certain serious side effects in rare cases. These side effects would require the immediate attention of your doctor, and include sudden weakness or numbness in one side of the body, chest pain or heaviness that spreads to the shoulder and arm, nausea, sweating, pain, swelling and tenderness in the stomach, abnormal vaginal bleeding, and pain or swelling in the lower leg.
Climara may also cause certain mild side effects such as swollen breasts, loss of appetite, change in skin color or acne, migraine, decreased libido, vaginal dryness or pain, depression, and changes in menstrual cycle. You must, however, tell your doctor if these side effects turn severe.

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.
