All of these pharmacies said they are not receiving the drug now. I am curious as to why it not available and would like a suggestion for a replacement birth control pill that is close to Loestrin 24 fe.

YES, it is being discountinued... The makers of loestrin 24 are now making a new pill that is supposed to be the same thing but chewable. It's now called Minastrin 24... same main ingredients, same cost. This is what my pharmacist just told me and I looked it up on their website too.

LoEstrin 24 FE was discontinued because the manufacturers were facing a huge lawsuit because they had been preventing others from manufacturing a generic version of the contraceptive. making chewable minastrine 24 fe is their way of saving their asses. they cost the same, however, minastrine is not covered by most insurances, even if loEstrin 24 fe was covered. Be wise, be careful with how you proceed.
