self-prescribing...?

So my question is: how bad do you think it is to switch pills without consulting a doctor?

The reason for the question is that I'm living in Thailand at the moment, where doctors are often difficult to communicate with but birth control is all OTC.

I'm 27, have been on various types of birth control for almost 10 years now, go for annual pap tests, and I just had to go to the doctor a few months ago for health certificate so I know my blood pressure is still okay. Besides, in the past it has seemed like doctors were just kind of randomly picking a different pill if one wasn't working anyway.

I'm not suffering terribly on the current pill (Cyclen), which I have been taking for about 8 months, but I have felt a *lot* more moody and especially angry (over nothing) than i used to before I started taking it and think i've now given it a fair try...time to switch.
