Horrible mood swings, headaches, crying spells, acne--within 1 week of switching to Ocella from Triphasil. MD advised to finish the month, but I will not take this medication again.

I've been on Ocella for about 3 months. And, since being switched from Yazmin to Ocella, I've had extreme soreness in my breasts, bloating, increased appetite, nauseous, and have been tired a lot.
