I have been on this for a year once Loestren 24 was discontinued. I now realize this has been the cause of my sever mood swings, which eventually turned into severe depression. I now have a full period, which I haven't had in several years and the wonderful debilitating cramps that go along with it. I am taking myself off of any BC once this pack is done. No more hormones for me!

While using Glidess Fe 1.5/30 I have experienced, mood swings, anger, crying fits, release of tissue, and horrible cramps. I have never experienced these symptoms so I asked my pharmacist about it and he said it was time for me to switch.

I am generally a really happy person, so I knew something was wrong which led me to read these reviews and I am SOO glad I did! I just took my last pill of the pack today, and you better believe that i will neve ... Show Full Comment
