I’ve been on Yaz for about 5 years and I love it! My crazy RX company has started only dispensing name brands if it’s medically indicated, so this month they sent me the generic, Gianvi. I have never heard of this med before, so I did what any self-respecting person in the 21st century did. I looked it up on WebMD. I saw horror stories of how Gianvi made people gain 10+ pounds, break out like crazy, and lose their minds because of the worsened PMDD symptoms. One user likened it to randomly switching from Yaz to crystal meth. *Yikes!*
Has anyone taken Gianvi? Did it work the same as Yaz, or did you feel like you were losing it? I’m going to call my OB/Gyn in the morning, but I also wanted to hear others’ real life experiences.
