... but it stopped. About the 4th month of taking Lutera I experienced a lot of anxiety, depression, paranoia blurry vision and numbness in my arms and legs. I stopped taking it a couple of days ago but I still have all the symptoms. Does it take a long time to get out of your system. I went to the doctor before getting off the pill but they gave me anxiety medicine and antidepressants. I feel like the anxiety medicine made my anxiety worst.i also went to a counselor but all he gave me was anxiety exercises. I didn't take antidepressants because I'm scared. I just feel so depressed and tired all the time and I don't like it. I want to be back to the old me. Are these normal side effects of Lutera?
