I have been taking Beyaz forever and then was switched to Gianvi like more than a year ago and noticed no changes, no anything and I really liked it. Then all the sudden Medco sent me Loryna which my Dr. said it was exactly same... WRONG! I have been so nauseous every morning to the point I feel like I am going to vomit everywhere (havent yet but worried I will), but yet still have been wanting to ... Show Full Comment

I've been on yaz and other generic versions of it for couple of years now. I have NOT had one problem with this drug at all. I have no had any severe mood swings, nausea, or weight gain. Every person who takes this medication may not respond well with this drug and every woman is different.

I have been on Yaz and then Gianvi for nearly 6 years now with absolutely no side effects. When my pharmacy switched me to Loryna earlier this year I thought that I would respond in the same way I did to the first generic of yaz, Gianvi... WRONG. I have had anxiety attacks, acne (which I never had before), felt depressed, snapped at people for no reason and worst of all gained 3-5lbs of what must ... Show Full Comment

I pretty much have the same story as everyone else. I was on YAZ for a long time then about a year ago the generic GIAVANI came out and when I went to refill my prescription last month, Medco sent me Loryna. I have been on it a week now and I really feel like a crazy person...I cry for no reason, Im moody, emotional,depressed...I just feel like a hot mess! I called my GYNO and left a message with ...
