NORETHINDRONE CONTRACEPTIVE - ORAL

USER REVIEWS

Comment from: esp413 19-24 Transgender 1 to 6 months Caregiver Published: June 02

well it’s effective in being a good birth control because i can never have sex now. since switching from norlyda to incassia (forced by my insurance to do so), i have been bleeding almost consistently and when i’m not bleeding, i’m shedding just uterine lining like crazy. not only that, but my dry skin has now become oily and acne prone, i can’t lose weight, and my mood swings are much more intense as i’ve had way more breakdowns on the 5 months i’ve been on this pill than ever before. there is 100% a difference between brands and i recommend running the other way when you’re being prescribed incassia.

I’m surprised to see all the bad reviews! I’ve been on a ton of different BC brands and this is by far my favorite. I didn’t gain weight, my mood is normal and no period. I never get cramps either! I really have no complaints on this.

Two years ago my doctor prescribed me with Norethindrone. At 0.35mg. I never had a problem while on them. About 6 months ago my pharmacist changed My prescription to incassia at 0.35mg. They said it was the same pill, I can tell you that’s a lie. They told me to give my body at least 6 months when I tell you this has been a nightmare I will bleed and spot for about 3 weeks at a time. I hate I stayed on it this damn long. This pill should be taking off the shelves that’s how bad it is.

This pill did not work for me I was on Norethindrone 5mg my doctor would not put me back on it and they put me on Incassia 0.35. I suffer with very bad pain and Incassia isn’t working for me and it hasn’t taken away my pain. When I was on Norethindrone 5mg it took away my pain and helped me this pill hasn’t helped me at all.

Comment from: Anonymous 35-44 Female 1 to 6 months Patient Published: June 17

Taking it to regulate my period. Been on pills for 30 years. Been on POP mini pill for about 5 years. Pharmacy forced me to switch from Camilla to Incassia. Nightmare. I thought something was seriously wrong with me. Since starting this new brand I've had weight gain of 10 pounds for the first time in my adult life, pins and needles in my legs, feel like I can't get a full breath, short of breath often, anxiety and panic attack spikes, more hot flashes, etc. This stuff is poison. When they tell you the BRAND doesn't matter and they're all the same, look them in the eye and tell them to prove it and show you the formulation. Ive learned there can be a vast difference. Trust me. Stay away from Incassia. Demand Camilla or some other brand name. I'm going to give the pharmacy HELL for sticking me with these stupid pills!
