What is the medication sold as Ortho Tri-Cyclen?

Ortho Tri-Cyclen is a brand name of the oral contraceptive medications based on two active ingredients, Ethinyl Estradiol and Norgestimate. The brand is owned by a single pharmaceutical company and cannot be used by other medications manufacturers but it the same composition and formula can be found under different trade names. These medications are usually cheaper and can be found if instead of the branded Ortho Tri-Cyclen you will look for a way to buy Generic Ortho Tri-Cyclen.

The action of the medication is due to two hormones - Ethinyl Estradiol and Norgestimate. They render the effect on hypothalamic-pituitary system inhibiting the production of gonadotropic hormones, which leads to the suppression of ovulation. These agents also Influence the cervical mucus, increase its viscosity, reduce the transport function of the fallopian tubes, change the implantation ability of the endometrium, and help to regulate the menstrual cycle.
The branded medication and its analogs sold under other trade names are included in the group of combined birth control medications. This group of medications is the most popular means of contraception in the developed world because it is even safer than barrier contraception, i.e. condoms. Nevertheless, if you opt for this option, you need to keep in mind that it doesn’t guard you from the sexually transmitted diseases which spread can be stopped only by a condom.

What are Generic Ortho Tri-Cyclen pills? Why are they cheaper than the branded medication?

The generic version of the medication is absolutely the same as the branded one. It has the same compound, indications for use, effectiveness and safety level. The different name on the package and a lower price are due to the fact that these pills are made by another drug making company. The medications sold as generics are usually made by the companies who do not develop the formula but either get for free or a buy a license to use it and make their own medications. This practice and policy is encouraged by the World Health Organization to make all medications available worldwide as a single manufacturer wouldn’t be able to satisfy the world demand for the medication. Besides, the majority of the medications are invented in the developed countries where all medications are priced accordingly so that people with the average incomes would be able to buy them while in the developing and underdeveloped countries the incomes per capita are much lower and people wouldn’t be able to afford the branded medications. However, over that past ten years, more and more people from the developed countries also prefer generic medications over the branded ones because of the branded medications’ ridiculously high prices that aren’t justified by anything besides advertising of the medication.

When you order Generic Ortho Tri-Cyclen, check that the amount of the active ingredients per pill is the same as in the branded medication and if so, you can take the tablets in the same manner:
A single pill is taken a day. The first pill is taken on the first day of menstruation. Then, every day at the same time a pill is taken for twenty days. After twenty days, you should do a seven-day break. The menstruations usually start a few days after you took the last pill. Once the seven-day break had passed, you should start using the tablets as you did before for 20 days. The time of the first intake is irrelevant but you need to take the following tablets at the same time daily, preferably, after a breakfast or dinner.
