Mercilon is an oral contraceptive for women. The active ingredients: Desogestrel and Ethinylestradiol.
One of the active substances of Mercilon tabs, Desogestrel, has a concentration effect, which is achieved mainly by inhibiting ovulation and also increases the viscosity of cervical mucus. The use of Desogestrel reduces the level of estradiol in the liquid part of the blood to a level that corresponds to the early follicular phase. It does not affect carbohydrate and lipid metabolism and changes in the biological system that ensures the maintenance of normal blood viscosity. After entering the body, it is quickly absorbed into the chemical Etonogestrel, the bioequivalence of which is reached in the blood after about 2 hours. It binds more to blood proteins and less to globulin, which impacts sex hormone binding.
Another active ingredient of Mercilon is Ethinyl Estradiol, which also has a rapid and absolute absorption effect, whose bioequivalence in blood fluid is reached within 2 hours. Complete absorption of the substance during presystemic metabolism is about 60%. This active substance has a strong binding effect with serum albumin and increases the increase in serum concentration of sex hormone binding. The distribution of Ethinylestradiol takes place in the mucosa of the small intestine and in the liver. The level of presence of this substance in the liquid part of the blood decreases during the day. It is excreted from the body in an altered form with urine and bile.
The combination of these two active substances in Mercilon tablets increases the effectiveness of the drug

In patients who tend to disturb the formation of melanin pigment in the direction of increasing, it is necessary to avoid direct sunlight and not to use a solarium during the use of the drug.
It should also be considered that the use of any hormonal contraceptives may affect the effectiveness of other drugs. Because of this, the concentration of the liquid part of the blood and tissues may both increase and decrease. When prescribing this medication, the prescriber should discuss the possibility of various complications with each individual patient and determine the likelihood of risk versus benefit of the medication. If the patient decides to take the drug, it should be monitored regularly and in case of deterioration consider its discontinuation.
Mercilon should be taken on the first day of menstruation, one tablet a day, at the same time, for 21 days. The sequence of intake is indicated on the package. Mercilon should be taken without crushing, with water if necessary. After 21 days of taking Mercilon, take a one-week break. During this seven-day interval, a menstrual-like reaction occurs, which may be less abundant than usual and longer. Menstruation usually occurs on the 2nd or 3rd day after the 21-day course. After a one-week break, you should restart taking a new pack of Mercilon. You may also start taking Mercilon tablets immediately after a pregnancy termination in the first trimester. If you miss taking the tablets, you can use the following recommendations:
Take the last missed pill immediately after mentioning the omission, in which case 2 pills are taken at the same time, after which the normal intake is resumed according to the scheme, and in addition, you should use protective measures such as a condom. Remember, the more you skip, the greater the risk of pregnancy.
If you miss taking the pill in the second week, you should immediately take two pills at once, and then resume taking the regular regimen. If in the first week the pill was taken strictly according to its scheme, no additional protection is required.
If you break the schedule frequently, there is an increased risk of falls protection against pregnancy, in which case you should use additional barrier protection, such as a contraceptive cap or condom.

What you should know about brand and generic drug alternates.
Prescription drugs are a costly medical expense, especially for the elderly, those who are chronically ill and those with no or minimal drug coverage on their Health Insurance. However, each state in America has a law that allows pharmacists to substitute less expensive generic drugs for many brand name products. Depending on your prescription needs, your savings could be very significant. Before you talk with your doctor or pharmacist about switching, there are things you should know about generic drugs.
What is the difference between a generic and brand name drug?
Nothing except for the name, packaging, and the price, a generic drug is called by its chemical name; manufacturers assign their own brand name. The generic products have the same ingredients. Standard practice and most state laws require that a generic drug be generically equivalent to its brand name counterpart. That is, it must have the same active ingredients, strength, and dosage form, be it a pill, liquid, or injection. The generic drug also must be therapeutically equivalent. It must be the same drug chemically and have the same medical effect.
Do all drugs have generic equivalents?
No. Some drugs are protected by patents and are supplied by only one company. However, when the patent expires, other manufacturers can produce its generic version. Currently, about half the drugs on the market are available in generic form.
Will my doctor automatically prescribe generic drugs?
It depends on the physician. You can ask your doctor to write a prescription permitting substitution of a generic drug product when appropriate or to define the chemical name for the prescription. This will ensure you are purchasing the correct Mexico drug. Generic products will be as effective and less costly. Or, you can order only brand name products if you wish. www.mexicanrxpharm.com Mexico pharmacy offers a wide selection of both Brand Name & Generic Mexico medicine. Our Mexican generic drugs are of the highest quality, selected only from the most reputable manufacturers, and are safe to replace brand name medications costing much more.
