no they dont believe that a generic is better that another.its not a case of one brand being better than the other. generics are cheaper and will save you money so they recommend a generic.

My derm was really disappointed when Roche brand accutane got pulled from shelves. He said he normally has patients stay on name-brand for 5 months, whereas patients on generics stay on for 6 months before clearing up. He did say that all his patients on isotretinoin have cleared up *eventually*, so I take heart even though I'm on generic.
