    I keep hearing this drug got recalled? did it or didn’t it cause I only know that walmart still carries it but meijer’s doesn’t anymore and if it is recalled how is walmart still selling it?

      I recently got mine at Target so I don’t think it got recalled.

    I’ve been having heart palpitations, anxiety attacks, tingling in the legs while trying to sleep at night, leg cramps, moodiness, tiredness. I’ve been on it for a few months. My doctor said give it another month or two. I have PCOS….i’m thinking of getting off of it soon though. These symptoms are driving me nuts. These generic birth controls really suck.

    • I’ve been having the same thing with these! I have way too many annoying symptoms, and I’m scared to keep taking them for the chance of a blood clot. The heart palpitations are HORRIBLE. It’s making me lazy and I can barely do anything for my 4 kids. I might have to get off them, but I have no other options! :/

    Do not take this birth control! I just got out of the hospital and I found out that this gave me blood clots in the lungs, neck, and head. Also it gave me complex migraines so now every time u get a headache I have stroke conditions
