Bravelle and Fostimon

Hi Dr. Smith:

Are the above two brand names for FSH medication completely interchangeable? Would different manufacturer add their own spice to the same medication during the process?

I was asked to order Bravelle, but found the same medication on line at a lower rate, but the brand name is Fostimon. Please advise.

Both are the hormone FSH. Bravelle uses a little older technology to extract FSH from the urine of menopausal women. Follistim is made in the laboatory using genetically engineered yeast cells. I use the 2 interchangably.
Good luck.
