I was on Quasense for many years- everything was great, last month the pharmacy switched my generic (thanks Obama).

I am on my 4th week and I have not stopped bleeding. It's very heavy, clots and the cramps are unbearable. I will be calling to get on something different.

Comment:
I have only been on this pill for not even a month and I have never been so depressed in my life. I liked the concept of only getting a period once every 3 months, but it is not worth the way it makes you feel emotionally.
