I recently wrote a post about how my drugstore switched my birth control pill to a different generic of the same pill. Since I've been on it, I have felt a little nauseous on and off, and then last night, I had a really bad headache, nausea and weakness. It went away went I went to bed and woke up this morning. Do you think the pill could be causing this stuff or could I just be getting sick?

Since the generic has the same active ingredients as the brand name pill, I'd really really doubt it has anything to do with the switch. I'd guess that it's related to illness or something else.
