That's really something best asked of the doctor who prescribed the pill for you in the first place. Everyone reacts slightly differently to different brands, so it's really a bit of trial and error to figure out which one works the best for you.

Also, this website: http://www.wdxcyber.com/ncontr13.htm
has a list of all the different pills available. It breaks them down into their progestin/estrogen ratio, and also has a chart that lists different side effects and suggests different pills that can help with each side effect, based on the progestin/estrogen makeup of each pill.
