Generic Triphasil

There are a few generic Triphasil products that are also available by prescription. These generic birth control pills, which are sold under the names Enpresse, Levonest, Myzilra, and Trivora, are equivalent to the brand-name version. However, it is important to know that generic Triphasil may contain different inactive ingredients than Triphasil (which could cause problems for people with allergies or sensitivities).

Is Generic Triphasil Available?

Triphasil® (levonorgestrel/ethinyl estradiol) is a birth control pill (oral contraceptive). It is available only with a prescription. It belongs to a group of birth control pills known as triphasic combined oral contraceptives ("combined" because it contains two different hormones and "triphasic" because it contains three different phases of hormone doses in each pack).
 
Brand-name Triphasil is no longer available. It was made by Wyeth Pharmaceuticals, Inc. Generic Triphasil is sold under names that look like brand names (rather than the usual "generic" name).
 

Generic Triphasil Naming

At this time, generic Triphasil is sold under the following names:
 
  • Enpresse® (made by Barr Pharmaceuticals, Inc.)
  • Levonest™ (made by Novast Laboratories, Ltd.)
  • Myzilra™ (made by Qualitest Pharmaceuticals)
  • Trivora® (made by Watson Pharmaceuticals, Inc.).
  •   
The generic names of birth control pills can be very confusing, since the names are long and multiple products can have the same generic name (even though they are different). To help avoid confusion, manufacturers of generic birth control pills give their versions a "brand name." These products are still generics, even though they seem like brand-name products, due to their names.
