I am switching from Orthotricyclen-lo to Yaz mainly because of it's treatment for PMDD. I have been on the pill for years and recently have noticed a change in my emotional state the week before my period. Most prominantly an overwhelming feeling of sadness and lack of concentration/motivation. It's definitely not my personality... However to my surprise at CVS they give me the generic form. this happened to me once before with orthotricylen and it was horrible the way I felt and that generic pill actually got taken off the market. I want to try and help these symptoms not make it worse. Most of women's complaints have been emotional and appetite. I'm scared now! Idk what to do!
Hi NurseJenn7, I looked up the side effects of Gianvi, and I was amazed! This drug has so many side effects, I can't believe it's still on the market!! I would talk to my OB/GYN for a LONG TIME before I would take this medication... I'm afraid it would just make things worse instead of helping you... Good Luck...
