Re: Rapid Weight Gain and Mood Swings with Loestrin 24Fe

I've never been on Loestrin personally. However, weight gain and mood problems are common complaints of the pill. The weight gain side effect seems to be an individual thing, though. Different pills seem to affect people differently with this. It's just trial and error. The mood side effects most likely are from the pill depleting many of the B vitamins. For this, you can try taking a B-complex vitamin every day. This should put back what's being lost and help you to feel better.
