    Before I started taking birth control my cramps were unbearable, I would even have to stay home from school or work they were so bad. The first pill I used (don't remember the name) gave me awful headaches, mood swings, hot flashes, etc. Viorele hasn't given me any of these problems!

    Apparently CVS has this as their preferred drug of choice. My prescription was changed over from Kariva (which I have had no problems with for at least 6 years). I was only on this drug for 4 days and had terrible headaches, bloating, and nausea. I am so glad I found these reviews, I felt like I was going crazy.

    I've been on viorele for 3 months now, going on 4 and i can happily say my cramps are gone, no weird side effects, the first week on it i did lose my appetite but now I'm perfectly fine.

    I've been on Viorele for about 2 years. Starting any birth control is going to make anyone emotional, so I expected all of that. I think I did gain about 5lbs, and it is not weight that will come off (I am extremely active) but I don't mind. No problems overall.
