    I have had a horrible experience while taking this drug. My doctor switched me to this right before my wedding. I started feeling detached from my life a few weeks later.

I've never suffered from depression and have always been a pretty upbeat, positive person. ... Show Full Comment

    After reading all the reviews I realize that Junel is probably the cause of my symptoms and I am going to stop immediately. I, like so many of the users, have experienced feelings of "not being there," spaced out, detached and unmotivated and just generally feeling dull. Also have experienced extreme fatigue - I'm tired all the time and I get plenty of rest. I'm so tired I' ... Show Full Comment

    I had a horrible experience on this birth control. It was the first I had tried, and I found that it made me VERY nauseous even when I took it with a meal as I was instructed to do by my doctor. I took it with dinner every night around 7pm, and without fail I would wake up at 4:30am every night feeling horribly nauseous. I actually lost quite a bit of weight (that I didn't need or want to lose ... Show Full Comment

    While taking Junel I had moodswings. I didnt want to be around people and randomly felt depressed. My acne worsened and got a rash on my chest. I lost some weight. I would not recommend this birth control to anyone.

    Comment:
    I was so unsatisfied with this birth control that I am surprised that I had the toleration to stay on it for the 6 months that I did. Within the first 2 weeks of taking the pill I began to feel emotionally detached from my everyday life. My sex life became virtually nonexistent, and I began to feel completely numb and depressed. I am a migraine sufferer with an aura so I technically shouldn’t have ... Show Full Comment
