Unlikely: if you never had insomnia before you took Beyaz (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol and levomefolate) then you need to also look at the social circumstances that may have surrounded your decision to take oral contraceptives. many factors can make worse our inability to sleep it is unlikely beyaz (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol and levomefolate) is the single factor. Try not having a TV in your room and always put down the iPhone.
