General Information about Ortho Cyclen
Ortho Cyclen is a contraceptive drug. It contains a mixture of female hormones that help in preventing ovulation. Ortho Cyclen also affects the uterus lining and the cervical mucus, thereby making it difficult for the sperm to make its way into the uterus. This medication generally serves as a birth control pill, but you may also buy Ortho Cyclen to treat acne. The generic name of Ortho Cyclen is ethinyl estradiol and norgestimate.
Side Effects of Ortho Cyclen
Some of the minor side effects that users of Ortho Cyclen experience are as follows:
- Bloated feeling, stomach ache and cramps, and nausea
- Swelling and/or pain in the breasts
- Weight and appetite changes
- Fatigue, anxiety and headaches
- Changes in hair growth
- Significant irregularities in the menstrual cycle
Apart from the aforementioned side effects, there may be several side effects that require immediate medical attention. A doctor should be consulted immediately if any of the following major side effects surface after the use of Ortho Cyclen:
- Severe weakness on a specific side of the body

There are also some very important precautions that you should take before you buy Ortho Cyclen. For people who have had problems with blood circulation and the liver, it is recommended that they consult a doctor prior to using Ortho Cyclen. Pregnant women should never take this drug. For women who have recently given birth, it is advisable to wait for 4 weeks before taking Ortho Cyclen. Breastfeeding women should not take Ortho Cyclen either, because the hormones in the drug may affect breast milk, thereby causing harm to the baby.
Dosage of Ortho Cyclen
The consumption of Ortho Cyclen should be strictly based on what the doctor prescribes. Taking the pills in larger or smaller quantities may have adverse effects on the body. During the 28 day course of Ortho Cyclen, users may have to use other forms of contraception along with it at the beginning of the course. The pills must be taken on a regular basis. Missing doses might often lead to complications, and pregnancy may occur. Also, users of Ortho Cyclen are closely monitored by their doctors during the course of treatment. Users should be careful to not miss any appointments in this phase, as the doctor’s advice is crucial to obtain the desired effects of the drug.
There are several drugs that should not be taken during the 28 day course of Ortho Cyclen as they can react adversely with the medication and lead to harmful side effects or even hamper the effectiveness of this contraceptive. Some of these drugs are antibiotics, seizure drugs like butabarbital and phenobarbital, and HIV medicines. A doctor should be consulted before you take any other drug or supplement during Ortho Cyclen treatment.

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.
