A patent currently prevents any generic Angeliq from being manufactured in the United States. The earliest expected date that a generic version of the medication could become available is in August 2017, when the patent expires. However, several companies may claim to sell a generic Angeliq product, but there is no way of knowing whether you are getting genuine Angeliq.
An Overview of Angeliq GenericAngeliq® (drospirenone/estradiol) is a hormone replacement therapy medication approved for treating menopausal symptoms, such as hot flashes and vaginal dryness. Angeliq contains both an estrogen (estradiol) and a progestin (drospirenone), and is only approved for women who still have a uterus (who have not had a hysterectomy). Angeliq is the only hormone replacement therapy that contains drospirenone.
Angeliq is made by Bayer HealthCare Pharmaceuticals. It is currently under the protection of a patent that prevents any generic Angeliq from being manufactured in the United States. However, if you search the Internet for "generic Angeliq," you may find a number of companies selling it. The fact is that these medicines may be fake, substandard, and potentially dangerous. There may be generic Angeliq available from another country, but there is really no way of knowing if you are getting genuine Angeliq or not. You should not buy any generic Angeliq until there is an approved generic available.
