I have been taking Mircette and then Kariva for at least 10 years with no problems whatsoever. In fact, I have been thrilled. Suddenly, a few months ago, my pharmacist gave me a new generic -- Azurette. I immediately felt different, but dismissed it as unrelated. The symptoms of deep depression, sadness, anger, weight gain, worsening migraines have continued and finally led me to try to compar ... Show Full Comment

All that for the went away after the first month or two, however I have had very little consistency as to when my period starts each month. And unfortunately, just recently my periods hav ...

Comment:
I tried taking Azurette after stopping Seasonale, which wrecked my libido. It's been a little over two weeks on Azurette, and I feel like an emotional wreck- I experience irritation and rage several times a day, as well as feelings of sadness and depression. I am fatigued, and my skin looks worse than it has in years. I am done with this pill as of today.
