    more side effects from generic birth control?

    has anyone noticed any new side effects after switching to a generic form of your birth control?

    Re: more side effects from generic birth control?

    I did. When I was on Ortho-cept, my ins. switched and I had to go on generic versions. I tried both. the apri wasn't as bad as the other but they both gave me bigger, sore breasts, both made me gain weight, 5 lbs. each, moody, bloated, ect. Now I'm on OTC lo, because it's one of the only brands that doesn't have a generic right now.
