Hey all - I have been on aviane (the alesse generic) for a few months now, and I had my dr send in a prescription for a home delivery prescription service of my insurance company. I guess I was supposed to specify that I wanted aviane (b/c they carry aviane), but I just said "the generic for alesse" so they mailed me 'lutera'

i haven't really heard anything about lutera...when I do searches I come up with much more stuff for aviane than I do for lutera, so I'm assuming it's not as widely used as aviane is. This got me a bit worried (although I'm guessing I probably shouldn't be!)

I was wondering if anybody knew anything about lutera or had any experiences iwth it

or, has anybody went from one form of a generic to another form of a generic for the same type of BCP? any experiences?

I'm a little worried but I'm thinking I probably shouldn't be so any comments woudl greatly be appreciated :)
Lutera is just a new generic BCP of Alesse. It's made by Watson and they make a lot of other BCPs, so it's not like it's from an unknown company or anything like that. When you switch from one generic to another generic of the same brand name, your experience should be about the same. A few women will have different reactions to the inert ingredients, but this is rare. Take care!

No reason to be concerned. The active hormones have to be identical to Alesse. You probably won't notice any difference at all.

Most pharmacies don't carry multiple different generics for a specific brand, so you get what they carry. Even requesting a specific generic doesn't mean that they'll be able to fill your request.
