NIKKI: FDA Approved Drugs and User Comments

User Comments:

For Birth Control “This is the first birth control I’ve tried and I am a fan of it! However, for the first day or two days of taking it, I was in a terrible and irritable mood. Luckily, since then, I have been completely normal. Additionally, some of my acne has cleared up. I have not noticed any weight gain or loss, change in appetite, headaches, etc. I’m very happy with this med and will continue to use it!”

For Birth Control “I’ve been on Gianvi for years. Loved it- and it worked perfect. I steadily was 115 pounds, 5’4”. A month, not even the entire full month into taking Nikki (our pharmacy stopped distributing Gianvi and supplemented for this)- I am now a whopping 143 pounds!! I am constantly cramping in my lower right quadrant. It’s unreal. I’m going off this on my own and talking to my OB next week. (I gave it a three month trial and thought it may take a few weeks to kick in — nope, it’s worse).”

For Birth Control “I will switch from vestura to this medication and ever since I have stomach ache all the time. I always have to eat something before I take it if I don’t I will have the worst nausea and stomach pain. My acne got a little worst and I cramp when I get my period which it didn’t happen with my other medication. Nikki is not so good”

For Birth Control “I was switched to this from Vestura because Walgreens stopped carrying it. I didn’t notice much of a difference. Seems to work fine (not pregnant), I get the occasional headache, and my period has remained regular and has become very light. Don’t ever spot or get crazy acne. I like that the Vestura came in a little pouch and this one is a pack with a cardboard flip front.”

For Birth Control “I had the WORST experience with this birth control. I have been taking Gianvi for years, which is another generic form of Yaz. I had to switch pharmacies and my new pharmacy doesn’t carry Gianvi, so they gave me Nikki instead. I took one pill and within 12 hours I saw all the side effects. I woke up and my heart was racing, I was sweating, and I had severe nausea. I would rather pay extra for the name brand Yaz than ever take this again.”

For Birth Control “I️ was on this birth control in high school and ended up switching back to I️t in college. Everything was great. I️ has no side effects and my skin is flawless!! The only reason I️ am switching after being on I️t for about a year is I️ would experience spotting every two weeks-heavy enough where I️ would have to use a tampon. I️ am sad to be switching from this pill because I️ liked I️t a lot, but just cannot take having my period every 2 weeks. I️ think my body just may need a higher dose.”
