Comment:
I have been taking Azurette for 3 weeks after not being on birth control for a little over a year, due to hormonal interactions with my thyroid medication. Previously, I was on Ortho Tricyclen Lo, which worked as a birth control medication but made me really moody once I started Thyroid treatment. So far on Azurette has given me terrible acne on my upper back, night sweats, and fits of crying for ... Show Full Comment

I started taking this bc about 3 months ago recommended by my reproductive endocrinologist. I tried the nuva ring as a teenager but I hated it. Anyway, 10 years later (I'm 24 now) here I am. The first week of pills I break out, but not badly, just like one or two pimples around my chin. I have difficulty remembering to take it... I take mine at night now with dinner, the first time I tried it ... Show Full Comment

After having no side effects except acne from lo loestrin, this was a slap in the face. I am almost done with my second pack of azurette and my breasts are so tender, I have horrible mood swings, will lay in bed and cry all day with n ... Show Full Comment

Comment:
I originally was prescribed this medication to control skin acne and thus birth control would be more of a nice side perk to it, however, I saw no effect on my skin and about a week or two after using it I got strong CHEST PAINS. I have no history of blood clots or any issues with my circulatory system and neither does anyone in my family. You should know that blood clots are not to be underestima ... Show Full Comment

Comment:
I LOVE Azurette! I have been taking it for about four years. I know most people review meds to talk about how bad they are, but I honestly have not had any trouble taking this. The only bad part is, lately, it has been really hard to find. So, every month, I have to call all over town, and someone usually has to order it. My mother in law is a pharmacist though, and she just located a box of it, s ... Show Full Comment
