... I was recently on Loestrin 24 FE. I was on that for about 2 years. I had to stop taking those because it was giving me terrible breast issues. My breasts were so sore for about 6 months. I was NOT pregnant, no tumors, no sign of cancer (I was assured that cancer doesn't hurt). Upon stopping usage, I felt 100% better. The doctor prescribed that I possibly need to take a lower...

... I've been on Junel FE (a generic brand) for two and a half years and i like it a lot. i took it for irregular periods and pregnancy prevention, but it helped with my acne too and had very mild side effects otherwise (nothing negative, just larger breasts, lighter periods, the good stuff). i'm on a low dose version of it, which could help a lot with the appetite increase if...

... Hi, I am on the generic brand of Alesse (21 day) and I skipped my period two times in a row by starting the new pack right away. I stopped taking my pills after the third pack on Saturday so I could have my period this week but I didn't get it. Is this normal? I can't afford a pregnancy test for another two weeks (I just started a new job and have no $$) and I'd rather... (1 replies)
... hinking we're out there trying to push brands. I push generics. If we can sell them, the FDA is clearly certain that they do just as well of a job. I'm taking generic Alesse, in the form of Barr Labratories' Aviane, and it works wonderfully. ... (14 replies)

... I have been taking oral contraceptives for nine months now and I have been through three brands: Yaz, Aviane, and Loestrin 24 Fe. After suffering from a sever outbreak of hives, I had to discontinue Yaz. I had only been taking it for a couple of days and I was very disappointed because Yaz is reputed to be one of the lowest-impact birth controls. In September I began... (3 replies)

... more or less from the brand name and this is considered acceptable by the FDA. If you have problems with the generic version, tell your doctor. ... (14 replies)
... I promise you, generics are the exact same thing and they work the same way... I was on Aviane for a while and had no problems. Anyone who contests that is imagining things. I guess things could be different in countries other than the US... but here the USDA mandates that generics be the exact same chemical makeup or 'bio-equivalent' of a brand-name drug. Look up generic... (14 replies)
