    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

    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.

    I was very hesitant due to some of the negative comments but I have come to find that it's nothing I can't handle. The first week of every month is a little more "emotional" but I don't cry or have fits or anything drastic. I just notice I am a little more sensitive. I have had zero break through bleeding. My periods are normal. My cramps are cramps...sometimes they hurt ... Show Full Comment

    I was recently on Ortho Cyclen Lo and loved it! I just had to start cutting costs and budgeting and decided that $60/month compared to $10/month was a good saver...boy was I wrong! Not only have I started to be more emotional after being on it for 9 months, but I have seen a huge increase in pilondial cysts on my inner thighs! They were on both sides at one time and take forever to heal! They woul ... Show Full Comment
