Other than that I haven't had any other symptoms. Overall pretty good for the money.

This pill was prescribed as a generic to me for the Lo-ovral. I had the most intense mood swings, and thought I was literally going crazy.

My advice, do not even mess with it, even if your Dr. tries to push it on yo ... Show Full Comment

I've been on this pill for about a year now. I switched to this because it's cheap. But now i'm starting to realize that my SEX DRIVE IS GONE.
