    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 almost never write reviews for products but after researching Loryna and finding all these negative reviews, I felt that I should write my own to help reassure anyone who may have doubts about trying it. I, like many other reviewers, had originally been on Yaz then the generic Gianvi due to insurance reasons (for a combined total of about 6 months). I liked Gianvi a lot but CVS automatically swi ...

    As other women have commented, I feel this med has ruined my life. I have gained so much weight so rapidly, have zero libido and I feel like an absolute spaz...my moods, my concentration, my energy level...all have plummeted. If you have any doubts after you are put on this med (who knows, it may work for you), be sure to say something right away. I made the mistake of waiting and the weight just ... 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
