Is Nordette the same as OralCon, why has there been a change of contraceptives within clinics?

Yes, there are many tablets with the same ingredients but differnt names. This is because they are made by differnt companies and some are cheaper than others.

My daughter's pill has just been changed from Oralcon (which she has been on for 2,5yrs) to Nordette. After 2weeks, she has a rash on her face with white spots. Clinic says the pills are the same? If so, then why the sudden change in how her system reacts if the hormonal composition is the same? Should I try to obtain Oralcon from the pharmacy instead?
