Comment:
I had been taking Kariva for 2 months and seemed to be doing well on it. A couple of weeks ago my pharmacy gave me Viorele instead claiming it was the same. It's not! I have been trying different birth control pills in an effort to halt my spotting between periods, and after 2 months of being fine, I'm worse than ever.

I know the pharmacist told me that they changed manufactures and that these pills are n ... Show Full Comment

I want to give a warning to anyone that takes this drug. I took kariva for years and had great results but then I tried this drug and within the 4 days of use I gained 5 pounds, was crying and angry all the time as well as sleeping more. The pharmacy said it was the same hormone level as kariva but I don't believe thats true because inactive ingredidents which were claimed to be the only diffe ... Show Full Comment
