... here can be a differnt percentage of chemicals than in another pill that comes in the same package...I know that there have been people who have been on generics and the brand name and have said that there is a difference... ... (3 replies)
... Don't be worried. The drugs are chemically identical. In many cases, generics are even made by the same company that makes the brands. Although I've never used Alesse, I have switched from brands to generics when generics were introduced to the market. I've never had a problem. (3 replies)
... Hey all - I have been on alesse for approximately 3 months now -- however aviane (which is the generic) is 3x cheaper than alesse, but I was just afraid to go on it because generics make me nervous. now, I know that everybody has their different opinions on generics (believe me, I've done a lot of research on the viewpoints since I'm scared like that lol) but I was...

... I'm currently on Zarah (generic of Yasmin) and plan to switch to a different pill when I see my dr in 2weeks. I'm debating on Alesse,Levlite or Micrette. And if I do switch I'm sure walgreens will give me the generics of those wich are.. -Levlite-Sronyx & Lessina -Alesse-Lutera & Aviane -Micrette-Kariva & Azurette (0 replies)
... the person who prescribed those pills to you wrote "DISPENSE AS WRITTEN" then more than likely you will get a generic substitution as well. I have both negative and positive things to say for this pill. ... (1 replies)
... years previous to the switch. The pharmacist told me that Aviane was a generic for Aleese and that they were exactly the same. It seems as though I've started my period 7 days earlier than normal. ... (0 replies)
... w other pills out there. I noticed an immediated difference in my moodiness upon stopping! I used to be very emotional for about 3 weeks of the month. I tried Alesse which was okay, but I experienced breakthrough bleeding. Other than that, I realized that a monophasic pill was best for me. ... (2 replies)
... The side effects aren't horrible but they're definitely really annoying. For one thing, I have my period for two weeks out of the month now, and I have cystic acne which I never had before taking birth control. I am also an angry bitch, but I'm still not sure if that's just my personality or what. ... (2 replies)
... I am also taking Aviane right now. I was on Alesse for almost a year, but the doctor switched me to a one hormone pill because of my headaches. ... (5 replies)
... I am on my 2nd month of Aviane. I did start getting a yeast infection towards the end of my first pack but luckily I had a difulcan handy and it cleared right up. I have heard that Aviane can cause yeast infections. Who knows. ... (5 replies)
... I am on my 5th month of Seasonique. It has been great except for the weight gain which is depressing me terribly. I diet and work out and do 45 minutes of cardio 5 days a week and the weight will NOT budge. Normally I can lose weight when I want to but this pill is making it impossible. ... (2 replies)
... Hi, I have been taking a generic form of Alesse Called Aviane 28. I have been taking it almost 2 months now. ... (4 replies)
... Thanks for the reply! I'm not worried so much about having children - so I guess I'm more worried about other types of medical malfunctions (laugh) like cancer and/or other things. The 'regular doctor' I talk to (and maybe that's my problem) never really says much about the concerns of long term usage. They simply ask me to 'persue' other methods of birth control....
