I started having severe cramps and heavy bleeding for 4 days after taking for about 2 1/2 weeks - has slowed down and now is just dark, brown spotting. Is this normal???
I found this on drugs.com:
Because of the potentially serious nature of these side effects, there are a few symptoms you should watch for and report to your healthcare provider immediately if they occur. These include but are not limited to:
•Signs of a stroke, such as:
◦Vision or speech changes
◦Weakness or numbness in an arm or leg
•Signs of liver damage, such as:
◦Yellowing of the whites of the eyes or skin (jaundice)
◦Upper-right abdominal pain (stomach pain)
•Migraines (or changes in your migraines, if you have had them before)
•Signs of a blood clot in the leg, such as:
◦Pain in the calf
◦Leg or foot swelling
•Signs of a blood clot in the lung, such as:
◦Shortness of breath
◦Sharp chest pain
◦Coughing up blood
•Chest pain or heaviness, which may be signs of a heart attack
•Sudden loss of vision or vision changes, which can be a sign of a blood clot in the eye

If you are taking this for menopause, then you need to think this over. You really should research this drug as there are allot of problems with this.
