I am so relieved to see many others having the same experience as myself. Walgreens switched me from Kariva to Azurette without contacting my doctor. I just assumed it was the same, but I was wrong. My migraines starting coming back, and I noticed major mood swings. I was very irritable and always tired. My doctor finally realized what had happened and switched me back to Kariva. I went to ...
