    I've been using Alyacen for over 3 years now, and have had no issue with it. It works; it's easy. I haven't had dizziness or nausea. I can't say my moods don't swing, but who's to say that's from the medication. I haven't had any depression nor increased anxiety. Any weight gain has been minimal and from my own laziness and/or bad habits. Overall, I've thought t ... Show Full Comment

    The first week or so definitely took some getting used to. I have been very dizzy and nauseous but if you are new to any birth control, these are common side effects. I have had a bit of a mood difference but nothing too abnormal. Weight has remained the same due to increase in fluids, exercise, and watching what I eat.

    Comment:
    TERRIBLE! Would comment on its effectiveness but I had to stop after ONE WEEK. I was having allergic reactions to the patch so my Dr switched me to Alyacen. Much like several other reviewers the depression, anxiety, and mood swings were just too much for me. I wouldn't wish those feelings and thoughts I was having on my worst enemy. It's taken about three weeks for me to chill and be abl ... Show Full Comment
