Comment:
Unlike other reviewers, I was not previously taking loestrin. Minastrin 24 fe is my first experience with birth control, and I finished my first pack only a few days ago. So since I'm not exactly experienced with bc, I didn't think that the side effects I've been going through were abnormal. The first few weeks were extremely emotional, and my anxiety worsened to the point of daily att ... Show Full Comment

Comment:
For those wondering, the reason they switched to manufacturing minastrin is because after a certain number of years other companies are able to make generic brands of a drug. In order to stop a generic brand from coming out they discontinued loestrin and created minastrin. So it really comes down to stupid pharmeceudical politics.

Comment:
I was on loestrin FE 24 for 3 years and loved it, no side effects (except for being moody the first month). Now after being on Minastrin 24 I can honestly say nothing has changed. It's like I'm taking the exact same pill. The only reason I didn't give ease of use 5 stars was because I hate the fact that I have to chew it and drink water with it but it's fine. I was skeptical to ... Show Full Comment

I also had some slight weight gain. But I am very impressed with the way things turned around during the 2nd month. I had a normal period. no spotting. no acne. my moods are better. my weight is regulating. the ... Show Full Comment
