Loestrin FE to Microgestin 1/20
Yes, I have had similar issues. I've been on microgestin for a month now & I'm extremely moody/sensitive. Loestrin was perfect for me and I hate that it's been discontinued.

I have had the same experience.I also have had some shortness of breath when at the gym.I also noticed this while taking another gereric not sure which one. I read that a loestrin generic is being released in jan 2014.
