If my girlfriend is on the pill and wants to change to another brand of pill, what is the process to follow.

She needs to see her doctor - not all pills are suitable for all women ( they need to look at blood pressure, family history, possible risk factors like high cholesterol etc) If she switches directly to another brand, it would not be a problem, she may get some breakthrough bleeds in the first few weeks on the new pill

I was on roaccutane in 2005, my matric year. I was on 50mg a day for 4 months, had all my tests etc.
My skin did have a remarkable improvement.
Since then i have been battling with acne again.
I changed pills:Jasmin to Diane,about a year ago, on advice from my GP, but his has not seemed to improve my skin at all.
I' m 21 and i can' t seem to get rid of it.
Please advise...
Thank you
