After comparing the available information, I can not find the difference between the 2 pills. Then my question then becomes, how can they be the same if the patent on Yaz has not run out? In order to not have copyright infringement there has to be a difference somewhere.View Thread
The problem is, these two drugs have different inactive ingredients. They do have the same active ones, it is what the active ingredients are put in that can cause the side affects to change when switching between Yaz and it's generic. While psychological effects can make ppl exhibit symptoms that they normally would not have, this is not the case for all the women here. In short, there is a difference in the two medications and the effects it can have on them.View Thread
