    When first taking BC this time around I was on Mircette and things seemed to go well, as far as I can remember 3-4 years ago. Insurance changed and then came Kariva and about 10lbs in year one. Also came was more emotions, feelings or paranoya and more sensitive than usual. But the symptons were not overwhelming except the weight gain and in another 6 months gained another 5-7lbs in year 2.

    Thank you everyone, for your comments! Azurette is awful! When I switched from Rite Aid to Walgreens, they automatically switched my prescription from Kariva to Azurette. I began spotting, needing more sleep, having mood swings, depression, and weight gain! I called Walgreens yesterday and they are special ordering Kariva for me. Ladies, don't take Azurette!

    I am so relieved to hear the many complaints about Azurette. I have had no problems on Kareva.

I am getting off this pill today. Thank you so much for everyone's feedback, I thought I was go ... Show Full Comment

    I am 19 yrs old and this is the first time I have used any form of birth control. My biggest complaint about this pill is fatigue and drowiness. I sleep so much, and could sleep all day if I let my body have its way. I'm a runner, and I even feel fatigued when I run now- making it difficult to maintain interest and speed during my running workouts. This is the first pill I have ever been on, a ...

    Walgreens switched me a few months ago and told me Kariva and Azurette are basically the same thing with no real reason why. Now that my body is adjusting I have a really bad temper, can switch moods on the drop of a dime and I have absolutely no interest in anything sexual. Now I'm back on my period again after only a week and 1/2 and kinda wondering why? It's not heavy but feels like ... Show Full Comment
