Comment:
This birthcontrol made my skin clear up and stopped breakouts. It also made my periods extremely regular and a little lighter (took a couple months on it). It didn't cause me weight gain. IT MADE ME CRAZY. Right when I started it I would cry hysterically all the time. Depression and anxiety increased a lot. It made me super stressed all the time and self conscious. Bad mental side effects.

I was on neocon for 6 years due to very bad menstrual problems and it worked great for me. my doctor switched me to this brand and i absolutely hate it. i stopped taking it after 2 months, it made me so moody and my emotions were completely out of whack. I do not recommend this

Have been taking Nortrel 1/35 for nine months. Was nauseous for first couple months, but that has gone away. Extremely light, short periods, no weight gain (although I've noticed some water retention in my fingers), keeps my acne away. If you can stomach the first months of nausea this is a really effective pill.

Comment:
Nortrel is a generic for Modicon. I was on Necon, another Modicon generic, for a decade without any problems. Then CVS discontinued Necon & gave me Nortrel. I am now on my 2nd month of Nortrel & have had constant pounding headaches (on Necon I had only 1 per month, on the 1st day of my menses) & high irritability. I am so bitchy that I feel like my perception of things can't be tru ... Show Full Comment
