Are all the ortho micronor (norethindrone) pills alike?

Supposedly: However, while the generics are supposedly alike are definately tolerated differently by the same patient so there are some differences. I sometimes have to specify a specific generic that is tolerated so the brand of generic is not changed each month or so.
