    Do not take this pill! I have been extremely emotional, irritable, insecure and have had crazy mood swings. It caused such emotional problems that it nearly ruined my relationship. It has also caused me to gain weight. I am so glad I found these reviews, I though I was going crazy!

    I too had my prescription of KARIVA filled at CVS and they switched me to VIORELE and just said it's the generic brand, it works the same, yada yada. I've had headaches ever since (2 months) so after reading the comments on here, I called my CVS pharmacist and asked why I was given Viorele instead of Kariva and she said that drug is a special order.

I started taking this birth control about a year ago (switched from Kariva by Rite Aid) and the worst side effect has been headaches. The headaches started out every month and now I get them almost everyday. I started to get nervous, thinking I had a serious medical iss ... Show Full Comment
