    I was on Mircette for a year before my pharmacy changed me to Azzurette. I've been on it two months, and I just started my last 7 pills. For the past week I have been an emotional wreck and my breasts have been terribly sore. I've read other reviews by other users who have had the same exact side effects. I'm enraged that a pharmacy would change to the generic form of a medication just ... Show Full Comment

    I was given this instead of Mircette. BAD IDEA. I was on Mircette for a long time and LOVED it. I have been taking Azurette for about 6 months now and hate it. I am getting off of it. I thought the side effects would go away but they never have. Extreme exhaustion, headaches at least 4 times a week, bad mood swings, and now a blood clot scare! I may just come off BC pill for awhile and see how I d ... Show Full Comment

    I too, like many users, used Kariva and then Walgreens switched me to Azurette. I've been taking Azurette for over a year now and have no problems (other then a few hard to avoid side affects when taking an OC). Overall, I love this pill!

    I've been on Azurette since March 2010. I had my Mirena IUD removed in March because of continuous spotting, and now I've gone from one extreme to another. My last period was in March. I've taken a couple pregnancy tests to make sure I'm not pregnant. I've called my OB/GYN and expressed my concern. They said this was normal. So, I should be happy not getting a period, but ...

    First I want to thank all of the ladies who posted feedback here. Your reviews have made me feel so much better. I have felt like I was going crazy for the last few months and had a hunch that it was this pill, but wasn't sure. Your reviews, and identical side effects, have confirmed to me that I need to stop taking this pill. I was prescribed Kariva, like many others, and took it for 3 mo ... Show Full Comment
