I've been on this pill for almost 2months.I am also taking lexapro, for depression/anxiety.The 1st mon. was fine. However, now I'm having my insomnia symptoms again and I'm emotional. I was doing amazing and noticing a diff. w/lexapro till I started this BC, and now its just gone down hill. On the bright side, I'm not pregnant.

I've been on BC for a long time. I started on Lutera about 8 mths ago because it was cheaper. This has been a horrible experience for me this drug made me feel sick and extremely moody. I would not recommend this drug.

Comment:
This birth control is horrible. I started 3 months ago and have been bleeding for 3 months. It caused bad acne and I know its from the medication because my face was clear and I"m older and I feel like I'm a teenager again that needs acne treat. The only good thing that came out of it was a bigger bra size.
