    TERRIBLE! Would comment on its effectiveness but I had to stop after ONE WEEK. I was having allergic reactions to the patch so my Dr switched me to Alyacen. Much like several other reviewers the depression, anxiety, and mood swings were just too much for me. I wouldn't wish those feelings and thoughts I was having on my worst enemy.

    I am on my second pack right now and I've had my blood pressure checked twice since I started it and it's through the roof! I'm normally just below 120/80 but just yesterday it was 159/98. About a week ago I went to the med stop and it was right around the same thing. I've also gained weight and been very moody. I'm calling my doctor in the morning because the blood pressure th ...

    Alyacen has been great. I was switched after Necon was no longer available and have had the same great results. I've never experienced any of the side affects associated with some birth controls and I have been on it for 6 years.

    I've had a similar experience to the other users, but have switched by the pharmacy from Cyclafem to this. I have been an emotional wreck, bloated, and am getting acne on strange parts of my body, such as my neck. My poor boyfriend has had to console me as I am frequently crying or angry. Stay far away from this!
