Hello, Funmomof2! How are you doing? I'm so sorry about the problems you're having.

It sounds like your just getting a bad hormonal balance from the Minastrin, from the symptoms you list, it's most likely too much estrogen.

Your should be able to suggest one you can switch to that has a lower amount of it and will be closer to the LoEstrin. If they really want you to have the extra iron a few days a month, then just ask about taking an iron supplement on your own.

Is there anything else I can help with?

I have been reading around and found out that Lomedia 24 Fe is the generic version of Loestrin 24 Fe and just came out this January 2014
