Is there a difference???

My consultant prescribed me MAEXENI 150/30 microgram in May and I have nearly finished my last packet so I asked my GP for a repeat but neither of the chemists in my town can get them from their suppliers the one pharmacist said that it is the same tablet as microgynon 30... Is there a difference? Because the MAEXENI makes me bleed for a week before and during and a few days after my 7 day gap which isn't great but is the best result I've had so far from different contraceptives (vomiting, 9 months of solid bleeding, migraines etc...) so don't really want to have to try a difference pill again the pharmacist said MAEXENI is just a brand but I don't know.

  • Yes, each contain 150 micrograms of the progestogen levonorgestrel and 30 micrograms of the oestrogen ethinylestradiol.
