What are Generics?
Generic drugs marketed without brand names contain the exact same active ingredients used in their brand-name counterparts, but cost significantly less. The drugs are required to meet U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) standards for safety, purity and effectiveness.
Generic Alesse (ethinyl estradiol and levonorgestrel) contains a combination of female hormones that prevent ovulation; it is used for numerous different conditions, although it is most commonly used as one of the most effective birth control pills on the market today!
