So today I was talking with two of my friends who are both on birth control, and one of them said something about "finally getting back on the name brand instead of the crappy generic." And I asked, "if it's a generic, isn't it the exact same drug?" To which she replied "No, generics are crappier quality and sometimes different doses." I don't know what brand she was using. Is this true, that generics are different from the name brands? I always thought that to be called a generic they had to be the same chemical makeup and same dosage as the name brand, or it wouldn't be considered the generic OF the name brand, if that makes sense.
