... 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)

... 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)
