Generic ribavirin brands

I picked up my meds for month 2 of treatment. The pharmacist gave me a different brand of generic ribavirin and pointed that out. I may be wrong but I thought I read or heard that one should stick w/ the same generic brand. Anyone know?

Not sure, mine are the little light blue ones from Three Rivers co, but I do know that my friend had been taking a larger white capsule for months, and then, last month, they switched him to the ones, like mine. When we compared notes, with other people, a few people had had their pharmacy switch Riba brands. Some had light pink ones, some light blue~
