Birth Control/Switching from Loestrin 24 to Lo Loestrin

Apparently, the manufacturer just stopped manufacturing Loestrin 24 FE, which may be the real reason your doc switched you.  May have had an advance notice.  I am also switching right now to Lo Loestrin FE because I can no longer get the Loestrin 24 FE.  I remember horrible depression and mood swings when I first started the Loestrin 24 FE, which ended after a few months.  Hoping I don't go through it all over again with the new one.  Never had that experience with any other pill.  Hopefully your issues will equalize after a few months.
