Question Nortrel Vs. Necon

Hi Everyone,

I'm new here, and just have a question about my BC and was hoping someone could help. I've been on Nortrel 1/35 for 8 months now, and today when I went to pick up my refill they gave me 1/35 Necon, I realize they're both the same thing, just two generic names - but could there still be a difference? The regular pharmacist wasn't there, so I couldnt ask why they changed it, but I'm due to start a new pack tomorrow - but I'm wondering if I should wait, and ask for the Nortrel. I don't want to risk any sudden side effects, since I seem to have no problems with the Nortrel other than fatigue which I always have anyway.

thanks so much!

Re: Nortrel Vs. Necon

Re: Nortrel Vs. Necon


I'm hoping someone will respond to this question. I've had major sleep issues since switching from Nortrel to Necon. I made the switch 9 months ago and just put the connection together today. I'd like to know the exact differences between Nortrel and Necon as I feel this has affected my sleep patterns (averaging about 2 hours of sleep per night for the past 9 months).
