Generic Prempro products are not available in the United States. The patent for Prempro does not expire until January 2015. In addition, the estrogen component of the drug is so complex that it may be difficult to duplicate it in generic form. Some Web sites claim to sell a generic Prempro, but these medications may be fake and potentially dangerous.
