I had to switch to this medication because of the whole Loestrin 24 Fe patent thing. I loved that pill, this one not so much. I never have issues with medication, therefore I noticed right away how different my mood was after taking it.

Comment:
The only problem I've had on this medication is the increase frequency of cystic breakouts. My doc says we need to wait longer to see if things will clear up to change anything (ugh).
