Switching from minastrin to mibelas

I've been taking minastrin for about four years now. I was forced to switch over to the generic brand, mibelas. I haven't started mibelas yet but I will be in a few days. I'm worried because I don't want my periods to be affected or anything like that. I haven't really seen any positive reviews on mibelas so I'm pretty skeptical. Is there anyone here who has made the switch to the generic brand and can offer me some advice on if you've had any changes with periods or just in general? Thanks! ## Don't switch, it's horrible! I just made the switch too and wish i hadn't. I'm one month in and miserable. Depression, acne, moodiness, bloating, you name it. Don't switch if you can avoid it. ## Are you going to switch to a new birth control then? ...

Mibelas side effects of hair loss

I had been taking Loestrin for years with no side effects then switched to Minastrin when they stopped prescribing /manufacturing Loestrin . Now taking Mibelas. I've developed alopecia and am also experiencing hair loss. The only thing that I can trace back to any kind of change is this drug. Anyone else having those types of side effects? Thx so much. ## That can be a side effect of most hormonal medications, according to FDA reports. You may also experience nausea, dizziness, headache, weight changes, and mood changes. How much hair are you losing? You might need to switch to a different contraceptive. Are you on any other medications?

Mibelas 24 Fe, first time taking birth control

I am 26 years old and I've never taken birth control. My husband and I have always used condoms. I was prescribed this birthcontrol but am worried due to the lack of reviews. I am hoping someone has had some sort of experience they can share. I'm hoping this brand of birth control doesn't cause too many problems and scare me away from birth control all together. Any info/experience would be greatly appreciated! #supportyourlocalgirlclub ## I wouldn't recommend this birth control. I was on the former version of Minastrin for years but was just forced to switch to Mibelas since it is cheaper for my insurance. The switch was terrible. I'm having symptoms I never had before like depression and acne. I'd stay away. ## According to FDA reports, oral contraceptives can ...

Don't switch to mibelas 24 fe

I did not want to switch my pharmacist literally gave me the generic without informing me! It wasn't until I got home later that day that I realized that it was different. I called and complained and 1st I got the excuse that the pharmacy hadn't been receiving any and then eventual I was told that maybe my insurance didn't cover it ( this is a cvs pharmacy tech guessing). Long story short I've been on mibelas for 2 months and hate it. I've been getting acne- annoying but I can get over that. Random itchy skin specifically my ankles, feet, random areas of the body itch ( I do not suffer from allergies. Extra moody/ emotional. The worst part currently is the migraines- I can not deal with this.my headaches are killing me- I can barely move my head or let out a cough witho
