Anyone having a bad reaction to the generic brand of Yasmine called Ocella?????

I've been on it one month (only because Walgreen's will only give the generic, which just came out in July) and I've put on a couple of pounds...yet I exercises 5-6X a WEEK! Ah! I'm constantly hungry on Ocella too. I was nauseous and dizzy as well. Ocella Sux!

And it's not pregnancy because I got a blood test! This is how bad this stuff makes you feel.

I don't know about that..
I was on YAZ and i had HORRIBLE side effects! I was only on it for 5 months but i had weight gain, depression, panic attacks, paranoia, and NO sex drive (i was a newlywed virgin!) and i was always vaginally dry!

UGG i hated it! and my doctor never warned me!

Yasmine was the first BC I ever went on. I didn't have the generic though. But after 3 months I switched to Ortho Tri Cyclen Lo. Yasmine made me feel really sick.

OMG I am taking the same thing! I pretty much am having the same things going on as you. Thankfully no dizzy spells...yet (hopefully never). I do not like this, I have only been on it for one cycle so far. I am however wondering if it works as well as yasmine did. I am not 3 days late for AF and I had taken the pills correctly after my last cycle. So who knows, now Im in the waiting to see what happens...grrr. I don't like this. I agree Ocella suckss!!!!!
