Levlen (ethinyl estradiol and levonorgestrel) birth control gave me suicidal thoughts, thrush (first time), no libido. Is Norimin better?

Side Efects: If your side effects were definitely due to the BC, than any other BC with a different type of hormonal combination etc. would be a better alternative. With your all your symptoms I would question whether they aware all indeed due to the BC. Be sure to follow-up with your Dr. and get assessed and possibly treated for an underlying depression that was brought out by the situation. Best wishes. ...Read more

Add CBT therapy: Research shows that the CBT therapy optimizes psychological outcomes w/ or w/out medication. It's the component that can make changes in how you deal w/ the challenges (large and small) that are part of living. Unless we do that, we struggle w/ uncertain results. You need to find one you'll work well w/. It's a bit like a coach. Please consider this addition. ...Read more

Experienced hairloss/thinning & cystic acne. Taking ocella (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol) & spironolactone 25mg. Acne under control not thinning. Can i switch vitex for ocella (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol)?

Experienced hairloss/thinning & cystic acne. Taking ocella (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol) & spironolactone 25mg. Acne under control not thinning. Can i switch vitex for ocella (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol)?

NO: Ocella (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol) is a birth control pill which helps acne. Vitex is of no value ; is sold with false claims to take advantage of people: it will do nothing for acne ; it will not prevent pregnancy. The usual dose of spironolactone for acne is 50- 100 mg, sometimes 200mg. You will see improvement after 3 menst periods. Hair loss might improve with larger dose of spironolactone. See a dermatologist for help w. ...Read more

17yrgrdaughter HS bipolar, add, premenstrual dysphoric disorder.On vivanse 60mg, straterra 60mg.Risperdal2.5.She is unhappy/goes off.Wht meds cd work.Sad?

Patients on: Stimulants generally need Depakote to help prevent vyvanse from effecting the mood. Risperdal is cheap, but not approved for bipolar depression. A trial on Latuda (lurasidone) with Depakote would be warranted in my opinion. Vyvanse may need to be raised and i wonder if strattera is really needed. Pms may be managed by Prozac only when symptoms are present, or through the month unless racing thoughts set in. ...Read more
