FDA Approved Drugs and User Comments: BLISOVI FE 1/20

User Comments:


For Birth Control “I know there are a ton of bad reviews about this specific birth control but I have no complaints about it. For the first couple of months I had a couple of pimples here and there but nothing serious, and I’ve never had that much acne excluding during periods which is normal. There is breast tenderness a week before I would get my period but nothing super painful. if you can manage to get though the first 2 months it should work well with your body.”

For Birth Control “I have been healthy all my life until I started this pill. I’m 20 and in perfect health. One day my arm randomly turned purple and became weak and numb, this continues for a couple days. After the second day i went to the hospital where they told me it was all in my head even though my left arm was twice the size of my right. My primary care doctor referred me to a very good cardiovascular surgeon who found a blood clot. A week or so later my lips had begun to swell along with my tongue and throat. After one more test and a visit to a neuro doctor I found out I now had two blood clots one in my neck. This doctor connected it all to this pill. It happens that I’m that 1 in a thousand, 20 years old and in perfect health this pill would have slowly killed me if I would have listened to that first hospital or never would have done anything at all. I warn everyone be careful because I would hate for this pill to ruin anyone elses health in the ways it has mine.”

For Birth Control “I was switched to this after my pharmacy stopped carrying my prior BC and it has been rough. I’ve taken two different prescriptions since I started taking BC and I’ve never felt side effects the way I did with Blisovi. Almost immediately I saw mood swings- getting angry/emotional about EVERYTHING along days where I couldn’t find anything to be happy about (I do not have depression). When it was time to actually have a period the flow was worse than I’ve ever experienced and it came with terrible headaches. I couldn’t handle the idea of even a chance of feeling these side effects another month so I changed pharmacies and went back to my old prescription. I struggled with everything about this pill, definitely not for me.”

For Birth Control “I was on this birth control for a few months and it was great for my acne (I’ve always suffered with lots of acne and it cleared my skin right away!!!) and it was effective in preventing pregnancy. However, my period became really irregular and would last like 2 weeks even. It would never come when it was supposed to. I had to stop due to the uncontrollable periods 🙁 bye clear skin”

For Birth Control “DO NOT TAKE BLISOVI!!! My pharmacy switched me over from Microgestin Fe to Blisovi Fe due to insurance reasons. I had no bad symptoms on Microgestin bedsides gaining a few pounds which is fine because I am very thin. But anyway since taking Blisovi I have had horrible anxiety, am exhausted all the time even though I sleep enough, NO libido, blurry vision, always feel like I am in a fog, and horrible migraines. It did work effectively as a birth control but that is mainly due to the fact that it caused me to have ZERO desire for sex. It was horrible. On top of the anxiety and constant state of EXHAUSTION. I’m telling you I felt like I never got any sleep when I was sleeping 8-10 hours a night. But luckily my new insurance covers Microgestin so I am switching back ASAP!!”

For Birth Control “I was prescribed blisovi after taking another birth control pill because the pharmacy I go to no longer held it. I did notice that after taking blisovi, the acne I did have before did come back after being cleared by the previous pills I was taking. I have also been told that I am just horrible to live with compared to before, and I noticed I do get agitated a lot easier than I normally would. The reason I started taking birth control was to regulate my periods, but I have missed a few periods and I get super paranoid. Aside from those negatives, I have lost my appetite for a lot of foods I usually crave (fried foods, sugars, and large amounts of red meat) so I have come to actually lose weight on blisovi. I also no longer have to worry about getting cramps on my period, bloating and my boobs no longer get sore. I basically lost all symptoms of my usual periods. When I do get my period they are usually 4 days long and tend to be light.”
