Comment:
I am on my fourth pack of pills right now. The first two months were not that good, but now my body has adjusted I think. The first two months I was extremely moody and irritable. I am surprised my boyfriend did not break up with me. I was also crying over everything. By the third month, I was less irritable and now I don't cry any more than normal. I definitely have an increase in appetite, b ... Show Full Comment

I've been very happy with Alyacen. I haven't noticed any effects on my emotions and it makes my periods super light, predictable, and easy. I had heard horror stories from others on "the pill", but this works great for me!

Like everyone else, I was given this drug instead of Necon because my pharmacy didn't prescribe it anymore. I haven't had any adverse reactions and feel the same as I did while taking Necon.

Comment:
After years on Necon, my insurance switched me to Alyacen. I had terrible panic attacks and did not feel like myself at all, and did not know what was going on. After switching back to Necon, these awful side effects went away. My husband later told me my personality was not the same while I was on Alyacen. Now my pharmacy keeps trying to give me Alacyen because they can't get Necon in sto ... Show Full Comment
