Nor-Q.D. Generic Available from Mylan

Mylan has launched Norethindrone Tablets 0.35mg, the generic equivalent of Nor-Q.D (28-Day Cycle) from Actavis.

Nor-Q.D. is a progestin-only pill (POP) that is indicated for the prevention of pregnancy. This oral contraceptive prevents conception by suppressing ovulation in approximately half of users, thickening the cervical mucus to inhibit sperm penetration, lowering the mid-cycle LH and FSH peaks, slowing the movement of the ovum through the fallopian tubes, and altering the endometrium.

A table of available oral contraceptives categorized by pharmacological class and estrogen/progestin content can be found here.
