VIENVA: FDA Approved Drugs and User Comments

User Comments:

For Birth Control “I was on Orsythia before they switched me to this and I was disappointed. I have taken Orsythia for months and I was doing great on it. When they switched me to Vienva I was feeling nausea and my heart was racing and my left arm was in pain and felt numb. I had to stop these immediately.”

For Birth Control “I was only on this pill for 1 week and it was terrible for me. I was put on it after having my baby. I didn’t have many issues with post partum it came and went quick. I was only on day 6 when I had a severe anxiety attack with with suicidal thoughts. I also had issues with anger I was angry at my fiancée and blew up at him for no reason at all. I bawl like a baby several times a day for no apparent reason. I asked for a low dose birth control pill because I have had issues with the higher dosed birth control, I am having all the same symptoms or worse then as if I were on Ortho tricyclen or the Depo shot. I have always had hormonal issues since I was 16 when I had grape cluster cysts cover my uterus so being on birth control is nothing new to me. I have used them to control the cysts for close to 20 years now. This pill by far is one if the worse. I stopped taking this pill right after my first sign of issues.”

For Birth Control “For the last year or so, my personality has totally changed. I am reluctant to go out and be around people as I’m fearful that I will have an episode of paranoia, anger, or just anxiety in general. I have been having aggressive outbursts and full blown panic attacks. It’s gotten to the point that I dislike myself and I know others don’t really care for my company. I was never like this before. I’ve racked my brain for months trying to figure our what event (graduating, moving in with my boyfriend, starting a new job) could have triggered this emotional change. ALL OF THOSE THINGS ARE GOOD THINGS. I finally asked my pharmacist for a list of side effects for my medications (Vienva and my allergy rx) today, finally thinking they might be to blame. Vienva’s side effects concerned me…turns out I started taking Vienva in February of 2017. I’m not taking it starting tomorrow morning.”

For Birth Control “I experienced nausea, sadness, and anxiety. I stuck with it, and the intensity subsided. However, depression and anxiety remained like a lowgrade fever. It became my norm, but I wasn’t the same me. I started experiencing severe muscle cramps, heart palpitations, tingling in hands and feet. It wasn’t until I forgot two days of pills and ended up taking four, I experienced all these side effects so intensely I thought I’d lost my mind. I felt extreme rage, sadness, panic, and the muscles in my legs twitched visibly. My hands were shaking. I was terrified and considered checking myself into a hospital. I called a pharmacist and he told me my body couldn’t absorb it at once and he had received calls like this before. That I would feel better after a day or so, as the hormone levels returned to normal. I realized the overdose was just a more extreme version of what I’ve been feeling on it. By the way, birth control is the only prescription I’ve ever been on other than antibiotics.”

For Birth Control “I was on Orysthia but they told me they switched it to vienva as well.This birth control has made me into such moody women my mood changes can go from 1 to 100 real quick which is not me and I hate it. It is not just that it makes me feel really down as well. Super depressed. I think I’m going to switch because after reading these reviews I’m not the only one that feels this way I don’t recommend this birth control.”

For Birth Control “I was switched to Vienva because of insurance reasons. (I was told no changes from Orysthia-which I was previously taking) I am rating this pill a 4, only because it does protect you from pregnancy. However, the side effects are horrible. I have had hair loss, racing heart, and extreme anxiety from Vienva. I’m so glad to read other reviews and realize I’m not the only one!”
