I can't believe what I'm reading - the same thing happened to me as well. I had been taking Gianvi for 6 months and the pharmacy just switched me to Vestura.

Comment:
I was put on Gianvi 3 years ago to take with Accutane and continued to take it after the Accutane treatment concluded 6-7 months later. I never had issues and was switched this last month to Vestura.
