Anyone tried "generic " b/c pills?

I use ortho tri-cyclen and noticed that I can get generic brands as well, cheaper. has anyone had experience with these? I'm kind of scared... but they're supposed to be the exact same thing as the brand name one right?

yeah, its the same. or at least i think it is. im on a generic version of some low dose stuff. its just that my health insurance company wants me to get the less expensive version.

im not sure if its the same with how over the counter drugs work, but when a drug goes off-patent, they can make a generic version of it.

My friend went from Yaz to a generic version of it. She actually likes the generic version better. I think it's like with any other BC, you have to try it out and see how you like it.

I was on the generic version of Alesse (called Aviane) and I liked it. It was also like 1/3 the price, so win-win!

I'm on a generic too.

They are required by law to have the same active ingredients, so the only thing that can be different are the fillers that make the tablet and dyes. There are very few med's I recommend to pt's to stay with the brand name, and in this case the generic is just as good, imo.

I was on generic when I took the pill as well. Worked fine. Like Jessica said, there is only one med my dr ever recommended I used the brand name, and it wasn't the bcp.
