3. OT, but what's the reason for prohibiting generics from having different

product info than the brand-name manufacturer? Seems more important that the advice and product info be accurate, regardless of who made the drug...

Because the Food and Drug Administration prohibits generic drug manufacturers from changing product information unless the brand name manufacturer makes a change, companies that manufacture generic versions of Plan B One-Step cannot update their packaging information unless Teva Pharmaceutical Industries, the exclusive manufacturer of Plan B One-Step, acts first. (The FDA has proposed a rule change that would allow generic manufacturers to update drug information independently.)
