My daughter is 18 years old and has suffered for years with severe resistant depression. After many years of juggling meds, she finally feels better. She is on Prozac, buspar, and seroquil. She also has many problems with her period and her doctor wants to put her on a progesterone only birth control pill. I'm nervous about her taking this, because we don't want to upset her "feeling good". Has anyone had any good/bad depression with this form of birth control pill?

Hi, sorry no one has answered your question yet, i've only just come across it. I also would be very wary about starting your daughter on the jolivette. It can cause depression, sometime severely. I understand how difficult it can be to find the right combination of meds to get depression and psychological issues under control, and to risk unbalancing this now is certainly something to worry about. I would strongly advise you to go back to her doctor to discuss your concerns. I don't know if this post has come too late? Maybe you could let us know how your daughter is getting on?
