Methinks the Doc is full of BS...

So yesterday my friend was with me when I went to the pharmacy to pick up my BC prescription.  I am on the Generic brand of Alesse, I believe its called "Aviane".  Anyway, my buddy saw this and remarked that a couple of weeks ago his girlfriend was at the doctor and the doc told her that the generic birth control pills have a higher failure rate than the name brand.

The first thing I said was "Bullshit.  No one would be taking them if that was the truth." of course he said "Well thats what the doc told her".

It sorta pissed me off cause not only is that going with "Well if a doctor says it, it must be true" mentality, but after pondering it for a while, I wonder if that doctor is being paid by a drug company?

Anyway, what do you guys think of this?  I don't for a second believe that there is any truth to it.
