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. Does anyone have any suggestions or know why or if this will become available again. ## Have you tried calling around to different pharmacies? I know that Modicon is the brand name for Necon. You can also contact the maker of the Necon you were taking and find out who they distribute to. I have found that the small mom and pop type pharmacies are very willing to work with you and help you get the type of meds you want. Good luck ## There have been several posts about this recently and it having been discontinued. Have you tried asking your doctor about a comparable alternative? I...

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.
