I had an argument with a friend who told me that my generic birth control pills are less effective than the brand name. I told her that if this was the case, they wouldn't be on the market.

Can you clear this up for me? Thanks [Smile]

Generic and brand name pills are equally effective.

There are all sorts of medications (and all sorts of other products, too!) that are marketed both under a brand name and as a generic,and they are all equally effective.
