Okay the birth control works, but like the other reviewers even after less than a month on Loryna--horrible breakouts, emotional mood swings, lowered sex drive, just do not feel like myself. Definitely going to have to spring the extra cash to go back to the Yaz brand name. I know in theory generic brands are supposed to be the same thing, but they just simply aren't.

I decided to use Loryna for both birth control and to help clear up my acne. It definitely is did not help my acne at all. And I have become an emotional mess... It will effect all people differently but it didn't work very well for me...

I have used the brand name version of this BC for years but can no longer afford it. Pharmacist first offered Gianvi as a generic alternative, then switched to Loryna, saying they were all the same.

Comment:
So far since i switched over to loryan I've gained the most weight, i have been on birthcontrol for roughly 2 years and on loryna for roughly 3 months. The pill works, but the weight gained since taking it is to me unacceptable if I can take other pills and not get this side effect. I am small, but so far this has made me gain weight to the point of light small stretch marks on my legs.
