I have been taking it for abotu a year now. At first, it induced migranes around the 2 week of a pack. I stopped taking the blue and white placebo pills though and I haven't had a migrane in a few packs. Like others, I have experienced irritability at the same time every month and have missed many periods.

My MD prescribed this to me say its a low dosage and that i should have any side effects. Well, my PMS has been worse and I feel like I want to jump off the roof. Im going to call my doctor because I dont think im supposed to be feeling this way.
