I have only taken Reclipsen for three months and it's been miserable. My anxiety resurfaced, my headaches are more frequent and more severe, and in the first couple days of taking it, I got this odd, uncomfortable rash on my face and neck. I didn't think anything of it until recently, when my migraines were so severe that they triggered me going into full blown panic attacks. Nothing abo ... Show Full Comment

Been taking this drug for the past several years, and a very similar birth control before that (switched due to insurance), totaling 9 years - never pregnant, never had any noticeable side effects (still weight the same I did in high school), no acne.

I was actually planning to go off the pill in a few months and just deal with menopause. However, one month into the Reclipsen, I landed in the hospital with a large pulmo ... Show Full Comment

My daughter 28 years old was on Reclipsen for one year and developed a DVT in her leg which traveled to her lung and now has a pulmonary embolus. The ER doctor and her pulmonologist both state that her birth control pill caused the blood clot and BOTH highly told her to get off birth control pills. She now is on Coumadin and Lovenox while they are working on getting her INR safely elevated. Thi ... Show Full Comment

Comment:
I took it for about two months and I have never felt so hungry in my life. I actually gained about 5 pounds (that's a lot on my tiny frame). I count calories and saw the numbers increasing daily since starting Reclipsen. I had a loss of libido too(probably from feeling like I was starved all the time). I would have to eat every hour on the hour and still did not feel full, it was awful. I deci ... Show Full Comment
