I have been on this pill for about 2 yrs, since Walgreen's switched. I have had many of the symptoms the others have:no energy,depression, NO sex drive, bad headaches,many bouts of bronchitis, inconsistent periods, night sweats, extremely vivid dreams, and tremendous hair loss!!! Until reading this, I didn't make the connection. I'm done...Calling my Dr tomorrow!

I just got off of this birth contol. I became severly depressed, angry all of the time, had no energy, and was constantly sleeping because of lack of motivation to do anything else. Within a week of going off of it, I am myself again! I laugh, have so much energy, am not sleeping all of the time, and am not depressed at all!!! It is a miracle. :) Please do not take this birth control.

Just finished my first pack of Azurette so far so good. Only one complaint my period is longer and heavier. Tried other BC's and had severe migraines. I would recommend Azurette.

I was originally taking Mircette with no issues. Walgreens switched me to Azurette 2 years ago. I lost a LOT of hair and have hot flashes all the time. First I blamed it on age...but I'm only 33.

Terrible. I have never taken a birth control that CONVINCED me that I was pregnant from day one of taking it. I switched from Loestrin 24 to Azurette to get away from the mood swings and the feeling pregnant feeling and I totally got a phantom pregnancy! I'm taking myself off this to go back to something else.
