Re: Severe Ortho Tri-Cyclen Lo symptons?

sounds like a panic attack. I had them on Estrostep, so i just stopped taking it. now im on another pill and i dont have them.
but yeah, its freaky if you've never had a panic attack before. i was sitting in class in college (ironically in one of the most boring classes ever) and i felt that fight-or-flight response.. and i tried to ignore it. but then i just got light headed and dizzy. i went to the student health center after class and they said my blood pressure was really high (obviously from the panic attack and being worried, its not that high usually).
you should ask your Dr about switching pills.. that might be all you need. there are so many pills out there to choose from too.
