If you're taking generic pills, you might want to consult your doctor... like NOW.
This is the third recall of birth control pills due to different issues since September of 2011, and the first recall which now directly relates to generic pills made overseas, calling the production practices of the drug manufacturers outside of the United States into question. Doctors often prescribe generic brand drugs since the costs are less burdonsome on the patient than the brand name drugs, which often times are more pricey due to manufacturing costs, marketing and packaging costs which drug firms build into the cost of the product on the consumer.
It's unclear who regulates overseas drug manufacturing for import to the United States.
