I was originally on Gianvi for about four months. It was fantastic! I actually LOST weight and looked the best I've ever looked in my entire life. Then I was switched to Loryna. Oh man, it's AWFUL. I've been spotting nonstop for about three weeks here lately. In the span of four months on Loryna I gained fifteen pounds even though I didn't change anything from before (same amount o ...

I have been taking Yaz for years. I was switched to Gianvi and saw no difference. Then Medco sent me Loryna and I HATE it!

I had to go on migrane medication which now I am connecting the two together ... 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.
