Switched to this after Loestrin 24(which I loved) was not available. I usually don't have any side effects from medications but boy I did with this! Within the first month of taking this I was pretty nauseous, felt emotional, and just wasn't myself. The second month was a little better, but not much improvement.

Into the second month nothing got better, started breaking out as well, I finally had to stop because of how unlike myself I felt.

I was put on this to see if it would help my migraines caused by BCP. Not only did it make them worse, but I had severe jaw pain, couldn't sleep and would become so dizzy with vision changes I would almost faint. DO NOT TAKE THIS!

Terrible... This medication was substituted for another generic version by my pharmacy, a generic of a generic I guess you could say. Since taking it, I have had breakthrough bleeding each month at least a week in advance, extremely heavy flow, and post menstrual discharge up to a week after. I have switched back to Orth-Tri-Lo in hopes of correcting this mess.
