What is a generic medication?
Generic medications are significantly discounted copies of brand name medication that have the same active ingredients, intended use, dosage, side effects, effects, and route of administration as the original brand name medication. In other words, generic medications have the same pharmacological effects as their brand-name counterparts. Over half of all prescribed medications are for generic medications.

Medroxyprogesterone is used to prevent pregnancy. Medroxyprogesterone is like a natural hormone made by the body. Using Medroxyprogesterone does not protect you or your partner against sexually transmitted diseases (such as HIV, gonorrhea, chlamydia).
Medroxyprogesterone may cause serious bone loss which may not return to normal after you stop using it. The risk of bone loss increases with longer use of Medroxyprogesterone. Medroxyprogesterone should not be used for longer than 2 years unless other birth control methods will not work for you. An important time when your bones continue to build up is during your teenage and young adult years. Use of Medroxyprogesterone may increase the risk of weak/brittle bones (osteoporosis), which can lead to broken bones when you are older. Talk with your doctor about the risks and benefits of Medroxyprogesterone and other birth control choices. Do not use Medroxyprogesterone if you smoke cigarettes/use tobacco and are over 35 years old. Smoking raises your risk of stroke, heart attack, blood clots, and high blood pressure from hormonal birth control (such as the pill, patch, ring). The risk of these serious problems increases with age and with the number of cigarettes you smoke. Do not smoke or use tobacco.
How to Use Medroxyprogesterone
Read the Patient Information Leaflet provided by your pharmacist before you start using Medroxyprogesterone and each time you get a refill. If you have any questions, ask your doctor or pharmacist. Medroxyprogesterone is given by injection into a muscle (upper arm or buttock) as directed by your doctor, usually once every 3 months. To make sure you are not pregnant, the first injection is usually given during the first 5 days of your menstrual period. If you have just given birth or had a pregnancy loss or abortion after the first 3 months of pregnancy, talk with your doctor about the best time to start using this form of birth control. If you are using Medroxyprogesterone at home, learn all preparation and usage instructions from your health care professional. Before using, check Medroxyprogesterone visually for particles or discoloration. If either is present, do not use the liquid. Learn how to store and discard medical supplies safely. It is very important that you use Medroxyprogesterone regularly to get the most benefit from it. If more than 13 weeks pass between injections, you could become pregnant. Use a form of non-hormonal birth control (such as condoms, diaphragm, spermicide) to prevent pregnancy until you can get the next injection. Your doctor may direct you to first have a pregnancy test before your next injection.
Before using medroxyprogesterone, tell your doctor or pharmacist if you are allergic to it; or if you have any other allergies. Medroxyprogesterone may contain inactive ingredients, which can cause allergic reactions or other problems. Talk to your pharmacist for more details. Before using Medroxyprogesterone, tell your doctor or pharmacist your medical history,blood clots (for example, in the legs, eyes, lungs), unexplained vaginal bleeding, asthma, abnormal breast exam, personal or family history of cancer (especially breast or cervical cancer), daily use of alcohol/tobacco, depression, diabetes, eating disorder (anorexia), heart problems (such as heart failure, irregular heartbeat, previous heart attack), high blood pressure, kidney disease, liver disease (including tumors), high cholesterol or triglyceride (blood fat) levels, migraine, seizures, stroke or mini-stroke (transient ischemic attack), personal/family history of bone disease (such as osteoporosis). Before having surgery, tell your doctor or dentist about all the products you use (including prescription drugs, nonprescription drugs, and herbal products). It may take longer for you to become pregnant after you stop using Medroxyprogesterone. Consult your doctor. Medroxyprogesterone must not be used during pregnancy. If you become pregnant or think you may be pregnant, tell your doctor right away. Medroxyprogesterone passes into breast milk. Consult your doctor before breast-feeding.
It is important to get each dose of Medroxyprogesterone as scheduled. If you miss a dose of Medroxyprogesterone, ask your doctor or pharmacist right away for a new dosing schedule.
Drug interactions may change how your medications work or increase your risk for serious side effects. This document does not contain all possible drug interactions. Keep a list of all the products you use (including prescription/nonprescription drugs and herbal products) and share it with your doctor and pharmacist. Do not start, stop, or change the dosage of any medicines without your doctor's approval. Some drugs may cause hormonal birth control to work less well by decreasing the amount of birth control hormones in your body. This effect can result in pregnancy. Examples include griseofulvin, modafinil, rifamycins (such as rifampin, rifabutin), ritonavir, St. John's wort, drugs used to treat seizures (such as barbiturates, carbamazepine, felbamate, phenytoin, primidone, topiramate), HIV drugs (such as nelfinavir, nevirapine), among others. Tell your doctor when you start any new drug, and discuss if you should use additional reliable birth control. Also tell your doctor if you have any new spotting or breakthrough bleeding, because these may be signs that your birth control is not working well. Medroxyprogesterone may interfere with certain laboratory tests (including certain hormone levels, blood tests for clotting factors, thyroid/liver function tests), possibly causing false test results. Make sure laboratory personnel and all your doctors know you are using Medroxyprogesterone.
Medroxyprogesterone Side Effects
Nausea, bloating, headache, changes in appetite, weight gain, tiredness, swelling, acne, hot flashes, breast tenderness, or irritation/pain at the injection site may occur.

If any of these effects last or get worse, tell your doctor or pharmacist promptly. Your periods may stop completely after you have been receiving Medroxyprogesterone for about a year. If this occurs, your periods will normally return after you stop using Medroxyprogesterone. If you miss a period and have missed an injection, or if more than 13 weeks pass between injections and you think you might be pregnant, contact your doctor for a pregnancy test. Remember that Medroxyprogesterone has been prescribed because your doctor has judged that the benefit to you is greater than the risk of side effects.
