Comment:
My old insurance no longer covered Yaz so I was switched to Loryna a little over a year ago. I hated it, so talked to my doctor and she switched me to the new Beyaz. Now my new insurance won't cover Beyaz so CVS once again switched me to Loryna. Thought I would give it another try - big mistake! 3 months on it and I've had terrible mood swings, anxiety, depression, fatigue, concentration i ... Show Full Comment

Comment:
I normally take Yaz, however CVS messed up my mail order and sent me Loryna. I had no choice but to take it seeing as CVS said they couldn't send me the new prescription until June 7th. I started taking Loryna and for about 3 weeks now I have had horrible spotting. It's annoying and frustrating. When I have intercourse it hurts and the day after I feel crampy and bloated. My mood swings ha ... Show Full Comment
