diane35 & estelle35 - exactly the same?

Recommended Posts

hey guys, i was prescribed diane 35 ed about 2 years ago, partly for contraceptive purposes and partly for my moderate acne. everything was going quite well on the acne front on diane and my skin was clearing up wonderfully. however, i recently switched to estelle, the generic version of diane, and at around the same time i made the switch i again started developing large stubborn pimples which scarred and leaves my skin looking horrible. i wonder if it's just a coincidence or whether estelle is not as good as diane (altho the pharmacist swore they were exactly the same). i read on a vogue message thread that estelle is "not coated" although i don't know what that means, or if it would have any effect on my acne. does anyone know if diane is better than estelle regarding acne?
