I took cyclessa for about a year and a half and stopped taking it for about 3 months. When I went to receive the birth control again, I was given caziant instead and have seen no ill effects. I've been taking it for about 5 months now, no bad cramps, no weight gain(as thin as I was in high school glory days) regular periods, and no babies! I'm satisfied, and with insurance, it's only 1 ... Show Full Comment

I have been on this drug for about 6 months now and the only bad thing that I can say is I have cramps, sometimes they are intense but it only usually happens the first day of my cycle and lasts only a few minutes. I was on tri-nessa for about 7 years and then all of a sudden began getting extremely emotional while on my period, i.e. crying over anything and everything.

Comment:
I switched to caziant since the generic version of Ortho Tricyclen Lo went off the market. I did some research and this seemed very similar - same levels of estrogen, different type of progestin. I've been on it for about 6 months and my side effects seem to be getting worse. PMS mood swings, nausea, back pain, and really heavy periods. To be fair, though, I have no spotting, which I often had ... Show Full Comment

Comment:
I started taking this almost two months ago and have had no side effects. I could not afford Ortho Tri Cyclen Lo and this was as close as I could get to the dosage in Ortho. I started taking it to shrink a large cyst and will continue to take it as an affordable and easy form of birth control.
