Your hormones may be: having an impact on your mood, anxiety and sleep. The orthotricyclen may have been stabilizing your hormones and moods which would explain destabilization 2 months after stopping it and restabilization after restarting it. An evaluation is necessary to determine cause and solution for your consideration. Best regards for good health.
