Is there any relationship between reclipsen and tachycardia. I am 17 years old and on the drug for 8 months. I developed tachycardia, unknown cause 2 months ago.

Comment:
I started taking Reclipsen about 4 months ago, and I would not recommend this birth control to anyone. First, my period has been continuing for over a month now.

Comment:
I've been taking Reclipsen for 2 months. The only problem I've experienced is severe pain while on my period. Which is part of the reason I'm not completely satisfied with it ,but the birth control does do its intended function of preventing pregnancy.y acne hasn't changed and I haven't experienced any weight gain at all. I plan to continue taking it.
