I prefer lutera than orysthia
| Xogirl
I started off with lutera and I was nauseous for the first few months but it soon got better. However that was the only side effect I got. My pharmacy then switched me to orysthia and i experienced nausea, acne, and really crazy mood swings. I am now back on lutera and I love it even more because my acne went away and I am feeling a lot better emotionally. I hope to stay with lutera from now on. I'm still amazed that my acne cleared up after a week of going back to it !

Lutera is great

I was first on lutera and at it made me nauseous for the first couple of months but it soon went away. I was then switched to orysthia because the pharmacy I went to didn't have lutera and I noticed a major difference I became nauseous all the time, I had really bad mood swings and got acne. Now I am back on liuters and instantly noticed a change. My acne went away and I don't feel as depressed as the orysthia made me feel. I like lutera way better than the orysthia
