Side effects
I was in Loestrim FE for a few years with no side effects. I started Gildess 3 months ago and for the past 3 weeks I've had serious migraines, dizziness and nausea. I stopped taking it for 2 days so far and as if right now I'm feeling better. I called my ob/gyn and he insisted that he doesn't think it's not the pill. He said it's the same exact formula it just has the extra "sugar" pills. So now I'm doubting myself and thinking it's in my head. Now he wants me to go to my primary to get checked out. Anyone else experiencing a difference?
Sorry for the typos

Birth control gildess fe
I knew it wasn't the same! The stupid pharmacist convinced me that it was.
I have been taking the generic version Junel without any problems but the last time they gave Gildess. I'm experiencing a lot of cramps and am extra irritable. Thank you Taytay 123 for posting this. Good to know that I'm not crazy, even though that is how Gildess is making me feel. My poor boyfriend has been having to deal with it. I have an appt in January and am definitely changing my prescription.
