I realized that this pill was actually ruining my life. My anxiety was constantly so bad and I realized I wasn't even myself since I started taking this over a year ago. I immediately stopped taking it but am reading a lot online of people saying they got horrible side effects coming off, but no one ever mentioned this pill. I am hoping I am not in for months of torment before I get back to my natural self. Please any experiences good/bad coming off this pill because of anxiety and if your life is better now being off of it.
I was on Lutera for a year. It was making my depression worse. I also have anxiety & depression when I'm not on the pill. I was nauseous & had more headaches than usual for a month. I think stopping any hormones there is an adjustment phase. I did start my next period on day 31, which is very unusual for me. I'm have very irrational periods without hormones, usually are 26-42 days apart, and of course terrible cramps. It can take up to 3 months, sometimes longer for your body to go back to "normal" with any hormone pill use.
I just stumbled upon your comment from June. I was on Lo Estrogen fe before losing my mind. I have been off of it for three weeks now but have been having awful anxiety, depression, and irritability. To the point where it is almost unbearable. I am hoping you have some insight now that you have been off of this crap for 6 months. I have never had a single mental issue prior to this pill. Please tell me there is light at the end of the tunnel. I wouldn't wish my worst enemy to take this.
Appreciate your insight!
