Would NOT recommend. I do understand that effects of BC are different for each individual, but I know myself and that I am regularly a healthy, happy, up-beat person & Azurette made me the COMPLETE opposite!

I have been taking this pill for about nine months now and absolutely hate it. It makes me so emotional and I get upset for no reason. I snap at my boyfriend and my family when they do nothing wrong, and I have been super depressed. I am calling my doctor tomorrow to switch back to yaz.

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!!!

Comment:
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.
