@MrsRevolutionize:  hmmm, that’s weird.  I don’t know for sure.  You should be able to request the brand name if you want it – it just depends on if your insurance will cover the non-generic.  I know my doctor used to specify that I was not to have the generic version of whatever it was I was on at the time.

Whenever I have spotted (for example, when I was switched to a generic I also spotted), it was never, EVER as heavy as a period.  Often times I’d get light pink throughout the day. Sometimes I’d get a little heavier, but it was always brown (old), not deep red. 

They tell you it’s the same, but I’m saying NO WAY.  I went from Seasonique which worked excellently for me, to Camrese which took about two packs (that’s 6 months) to get used to.  Then they tried putting me on this generic of the generic and my body went into some kind of nuclear meltdown.  I was emotional, impossible to be around, and I spotted HEAVILY (still not as heavily as you, but enough that I went back and bought Camrese).
