User Reviews for Mono-Linyah to treat Acne

Flora · Taken for 1 to 6 months July 28, 2020

“I have been on 4 different types of birth control pills and Mono-Linyah was the only one that worked for me. It cleared up my skin and caused less breakouts. It didn’t change my sex drive or chase mood swings. When Mono-Linyah ran out of supply in my pharmacy and I got switched over to a generic, I changed back to Mono-Linyah just after a month because the side effects were so bad. Definitely staying with this. Also works great as birth control.”

“Cleared up my acne wonderfully—however the reviews saying it makes you gain weight are probably true. I haven’t gained weight, but I also have been making huge efforts to lose weight (working out everyday, counting calories, etc.). However, the scale won’t budge. Before I was taking this specific pill, I was on a different one, weight was coming off at an expected pace, it literally came to a screeching halt when I started taking mono linyah. Again, I haven’t gained weight because I’ve been staying (generally) in a calorie deficit—but if I wasn’t, I could definitely see this aiding weight gain.”

“This birth control Momo-Linyah has been absolutely HORRIBLE for my acne. I started taking this when Mononessa was discontinued. I regret taking this pill. My complexion had been cleared thanks to previously taking Yaz/Yasmin but this has messed it up. I have cystic acne and post acne scars. I am now trying to get back on ocella/yas/yasmin to clear up my complexion ...”

“I guess everyone’s experience is way different . Everyone seems to have had a bad experience with Mono Linyah but for meI on the other hand have been on this BC for the past 5 years and it has done wonders. I have never gotten pregnant and I use this for acne. I had really bad acne as a teen and this was able to control my acne , and my oily face . Of course I get a break out here and there when I’m about to start my period but nothing major. I then got off of Mono Linyah for about 4 months and my oily face came back and I broke out like crazy. I just got back on it because this was the only medication able to help with my acne.”
