Comment:
I was switched to Tilia last month because my usual Tri Legest pills were not available.

I have been on this pill for a full month and like it. It has helped clear up the acne I was given while taking Loestrin FE significantly.

Comment:
I am only taking this for one month; the pharmacy was out of Tri-legist Fe (generic Estrostep - why does Estrostep have to be so expensive!?) Im on the second week and I am experiencing breast tenderness. I have never experienced this side effect before with any other BC pill...actually I have not experienced this kind of breast sensitivity since puberty! I also think the packaging is a wast ...

Comment:
Some months I feel fine on this, but some months I have a lot of breast tenderness and severe mood swings and depression. I was a little skeptical about switching from Estrostep to this generic, but I really want to go back to Estrostep. I have had bad breast tenderness for days and very low energy and bad mood swings.
