- Wedding: May 2011
I just transferred my Ocella prescription to Walmart (we just moved & there’s a Walmart across the street from us) & went to pick it up today. No one said anything to me when I was picking it up & I just took a look in the bag a little bit ago, & they gave me Zarah. I asked FI about it since he works in a pharmacy & said that it’s just another generic of Yasmin, just like Ocella.
I looked it up online & am really apprehensive about taking it after hearing the awful side effects people have had (being super emotional & having crazy mood swings was the most common recurring theme). I was on Yaz all through college & had no issues with it at all, but there wasn’t any real reason for me to be on that instead of Yasmin, so I switched to Ocella right before starting grad school to save money. I don’t think I really had any issues with Ocella, nothing that stands out, anyway, so I’m a bit apprehensive to start a new pill when the other was working just fine. The last things I need, 3 weeks from my wedding, are bad mood swings, weight gain, and bad acne coming out of nowhere..
Does anyone on the Bee take Zarah? Anyone have anything GOOD to say about it? Or is it just all bad? :-
