Grr.... Yaz....

Alright, I'm bummed. I'm on my first week of Yaz and I feel like I'm going crazy. I cry for no reason at all. I'm depressed all the time. I'm extremely irritable and impatient, two characteristics that are not like me at all. My husband can't do anything right in my eyes. What's the deal?

It seems like Yaz is good for those who suffer solely from severe PMS or PMDD, NOT for people who already have anxiety problems/disorders (such as myself). Has this been the case with anyone else?

I'm trying to decide if I can stick it out for the month, or just quit. This really blows.

Re: Grr.... Yaz....

I definitely had a horrific experience with YAZ. Keep in mind that I am usually even-keeled, happy, and sleep well. Two days after I began the pill, I had some horrible mood swings. The third night after I took the pill, I didn't fall asleep until 7:30 am. Four days into it, I was really really depressed. I had uncontrollable crying fits for no reason. I didn't sleep that night either. The following night, I broke out in hives. I fell asleep at the normal time, but woke up at 4 am and didn't fall asleep until that night. I took multiple doses of Tylenol PM in increments, and it didn't help. I was also "talking crazy" about killing myself and all kinds of stuff. I quit taking the pill that day, and all of the side effects subsided by the end of that week. Now I'm back to normal, but I'm really shocked that the doctor gave that stuff to me without warning me about the serious side effects.

All birth control pills deplete the B vitamins, hence your depression, irritability, etc. Try taking a B complex vitamin with your pill, it should help, it helped me when I was on the pill. Good luck.

Re: Grr.... Yaz....

I responded horribly to other birth control pills and antidepressants.
Yaz is the first one that has worked for me.
I will admit, I do cry at the drop of a hat, but nothing really affects me to do so, it just kind of happens.
Take a Stress B-Complex and drink lots and lots of water with it.
No caffeine(it makes the irritability and emotions much worse)
But I have horrid anxiety issues, and panic disorder and have had no additional problems upon taking it.
