Like others, I was switched to this after Loestrin 24/Fe was discontinued (why was that discontinued??) Anyway I've found myself feeling really tired, depressed, and emotional, like I could cry for no reason, which is not like me at all. I am stopping usage of this drug ASAP.

After being on Loestrin Fe24 for almost 5 years now, I was switched to this medication because Loestrin was discontinued. I have been on this birth control for less than 2 weeks now and could not be more dissatisfied. I have been EXTREMELY emotional and exceptionally anxious, depressed with mild panic attacks.
