Experience

I switched to Yasmin after being on Dianette for about 7 years. I never had any issues while on Dianette but as soon as I swapped to Yasmin I stopped being my usual self. 6/7 days in the week I would have horrendous panic and anxiety attacks. Any small thing could set me off into tears and then spiral out of control. I had visions of dying even though I am healthy and generally love life. My appetite also reduced. Sometimes I would feel starving and once I’d take a bite of food I’d feel nauseous. I also found it more difficult to sleep at night, whereas previously I never had any sleep issues at all. My issues stopped during my break week. After 3 months of this pill I went to my doctor to change to an alternative.
