Azor side effects
Just wanted others thoughts before I decided on taking this med. Does anyone know if the side effects will remain in my body for long after i stop the med.
Following surgery I was recommended to get the Lupron shot which i allowed my gyno to do and give me this add back of aygestin. This drug led me to think I was having a mental breakdown. Gave me leg cramps and body aches that I wasted to much money seeing doctors trying to figure out if I have an autoimmune disease.
I'm just trying to figure out when the bleeding will stop. This was my first exposure to a progestin and the first birth control pill to ever work for me, emotionally.
Common Azor ide effects may include:
The choice of progestin, its dose, and its regimen may be important in minimizing these adverse effects, but these issues will require further study before they are clarified.
Of course, they also have the side effects listed above.
Progestins, once stopped, force a 'normal' menstrual bleed, which clears out the uterus so no further inappropriate bleeding occurs.
I wish I would start my period already so I could stop taking this crazy pill.
