I have been taking Camrese for almost 3 months & I'm not happy. At all. I've been on worse pills, but this is still pretty unbearable. I have become depressed while taking this, to the point where I cry myself to sleep and want to remain in bed all day. Sometimes I go a week without a shower because of how bad the depression has gotten. Also for the past month, I have been bleeding non ... Show Full Comment

Comment:
I would not recommend this pill for anyone who already has depression. It made everything worse and now I have severe anxiety. It did its job, I'm not pregnant. But I do have my period early by one week. The only positive things that happened that I never spotted and period symptoms are better, and a period every three months is nice. However, there are far too many cons than pros and overall ... Show Full Comment

I took Camrese for the entire three months as it is a three month pack. I had a lot of spotting for the first two months. So much so, it was almost like a regular period - only a period that wouldn't stop. By the third month, the spotting finally stopped, and I didn't have my period again until the last week, when I was supposed to. During that last week, when I was on my scheduled ...

Comment:
I was on Amethia before my pharmacy switched generic brands. This pill has been absolutely horrible. Within the first week I was severely depressed to the point that I didn't want to get up and do anything. Luckily, the second week I started feeling better, but some days I really have to fight the urge to not sink back into depression. On top of that I have never had bad acne and this pill has ...
