Horrible experience with Viorele. I was prescribed Miricette and like other reviewers, CVS gave me the generic Viorele. I gained 10-15 pounds within the first two months (I am 5' 7'' and went from 140-155 within weeks). When I visited the doctor she told me it was probably not the drug, but could be a combination of factors. I continued to use it and experienced depression and change i ... Show Full Comment

I read about this drug and saw that the reviews were terrible but I tried it anyway because kariva was too expensive and the only pharmacy that carried it was 15 miles away almost. I am on the beginning of the second week and have no complaints. It works just like kariva but I actually get full really quickly and my cravings are not bad at all. I recommend trying this and disregard the bad reviews ... Show Full Comment

I've been on a few different pills and this one by far is the worst. I thought I was going crazy, I would get dizzy, didn't want to get out of bed, became paranoid and would wake up in night sweats with my heart racing. I had trouble breathing, started questioning my relationship and would cry uncontrollably. I thought I had lost my mind at 23, then my mother read the side effects and foun ... Show Full Comment

Comment:
Being newly married AND diagnosed with PCOS (poly-cystic ovarian syndrome), my doctor prescribed Mircette. The pharmacy suggested the generic version, Viorele. I'd never had bad experiences with generic meds before, I went along with it. The experience was not much different than other oral contraceptives I'd used in the past, though I'd never used any for more than a month before. My ... Show Full Comment

If you are reading all these other reviews do not panic like I did. I am 25 years old and I am just over my first month taking this pill and I'm having very positive results. I've been on the pill for over 10 years and have tried a few different ones. Most recently, I had been taking Loestrin 24FE, until it was replaced by a different pill that my insurance wouldn't cover. My Dr. sw ... Show Full Comment
