Hi, so I've been taking Lo Loestrin for 5 days now and ever since the day after I took the first pill, it's been difficult to swallow and eat without choking. I also have bad breath because of the dryness that I can't get rid of, no matter how many times I brush my teeth. If anyone is experiencing similar things, please let me know, and maybe we could work on a way to get rid of it or decide if it's better to stop taking Lo Loestrin all together.

Most medications can cause dry mouth, but I've never heard of it being that severe, from oral contraceptives. As reported by the FDA, other typical side effects may possibly include dizziness, headache, irritability and PMS-like symptoms.

Given the severity, I'd suggest speaking to your doctor about trying a different oral contraceptive.

Is there anything else I can help with?

When you stopped taking it did it go away?

I have been taking it for a month, and my mouth is so dry, that it is difficult to have conversations at times. I thought it was just me! Everyone says that it’s not possible! Well, tell that to my dry mouth!
