Is Estradiol/Norethindrone a Generic CombiPatch?
The answer is no. Estradiol and norethindrone are the active ingredients in CombiPatch (and other medications); they are not a generic version of CombiPatch. What can be confusing is that, oftentimes, the active ingredient of any drug is referred to as the "generic name." The generic name is different from a generic version of a medicine. In order for there to be a generic version of a medicine, the original medicine must have gone off patent, and another company besides the original manufacturer must make the product.
