Necon 1/50 not available

I have been on Necon 1/50 for several years and all of a sudden I can't get it anymore. I am having trouble finding something that is similar that works as well for me with my heavy bleeding and cramping.

Necon1/50 Uteran cysts/acne

My daughter had been taking Necon 1/50 to control her acne (cysts) caused by cysts on the uterus. When she goes to a lower dosage, the acne cysts return. Recently it has been impossible to fill her prescription with the 1/50 dosage. The only thing the pharmacies carry is the 1/35 which is too light of a dosage. Is there a substitute. Her gynocologist does not know of anything.
