This medication is horrible! I got a script 3 months ago and all 3 months Ive spotted to the point of wearing tampons. That is not what I expected and I just took myself off because this is not normal at all.

Comment:
I was taking Loestrin FE/24 for years, before and LOVED it, due to it being "discontinued" and dispensed under a new & generic name, i.e. Gildess FE, I had to be switched over to Gildess. I'm on my 3rd week of Gildess and I feel as though I'm losing my mind. I'm all over the place with random emotions, from rage, to paranoia, to depression, to manic. I have already conta ...
