HATE HATE HATE. I think it's effective (I sure hope it is!) but I've been moody, nauseous, and worst, have been breaking out like crazy since being on it! I will never, EVER take Gildess again... I'm now insisting upon the Microgestin I was originally prescribed.

I was on Junel Fe for almost 2 years when the pharmacy said it was unavailable so for the same price 19.99 I got gildess. Besides extreme moodiness the first week I have been fine. This is only my first month but my period came regularly, I have minimal cramps and I'm not pregnant! wooo

My insurance upped the cost of Microgestin to pick up at the store so I was sent Gildress FE 1/20 instead. I have been extremely moody and I feel bloated 2 weeks out of the month. I have already renewed my microgestin... I will pay the extra.

Comment:
My pharmacy switched to gildess fe 1/20 after I've been on microgestin fe 1/20 since 2006. I hate it and it makes me highly emotional and I don't feel like myself. I feel depressed and angry. I am switching back to microgestin ASAP. If you've been used to a certain generic brand, I wouldn't recommend switching.
