Can I switch from a no name brand of birth control to a name brand?

I was taking Aviane (the no name version of Alesse) but they stopped carrying it. So I am going to take Alesse (the name brand). Will it affect anything? I don't think it would make a difference because it's the just comparing the no name version to the name brand of the same pill (rather than just completely switching to a different brand of birth control). But I thought I would ask anyway! Thanks :)

    they are the same thing. pharmacies are legally obligated to provide people with the generic brand.

    as long as the active ingredients are the same, it should not change anything.
