I absolutely cannot stand this pill. I've never had such harsh side effects from a pill that affect me on a daily basis. I have extreme nausea and dizziness spells that go in and out. I have had a huge headache for the past two days that I have been unable to get rid of. Don't even get me started on the mood swings. I complained 2 weeks into taking this pill and they told me to wait 2-3 mo ... Show Full Comment

I was on this and Cesia (another generic of the same name brand) for about 4 years. I recently decided I no longer wanted to take an birth control pill. 3-4 months after I stopped take this pill, my hair started falling out at an alarming rate.

As for mood swings and such, I haven't had any that are irregular but hey everyone's different. I say give it a shot. I'm usually the type of person that whenever I start a new prescription all th ... Show Full Comment

Comment:
I've been taking this pill for about 8 months. I've never taken birth control before, and my doctor recommended Caziant to start out because of the cost. She told me that some of her patients felt "bitchy" while taking it, and if that happened to me, I should contact her so she could switch me to another pill. As another review said, the first week can be a bit sensitive for me, ... Show Full Comment

Comment:
For the first few months on this bc I had absolutely no side effects. After a few months I started getting mood swings and occasional nausea. The mood swings have progressively gotten worse to the point that I will randomly start crying at work for no real reason. The nausea has also gone from not bad to absolutely unbearable and lasts all day. I kept thinking it was something else causing all of ... Show Full Comment
