Comment:
For those wondering, the reason they switched to manufacturing minastrin is because after a certain number of years other companies are able to make generic brands of a drug. In order to stop a generic brand from coming out they discontinued loestrin and created minastrin. So it really comes down to stupid pharmeceudical politics. I've had a terrible time on minastrin so far. On my third or fo ... Show Full Comment
