Cerazette and anxiety?

Hi guys,

Just wondered if anyone has had a similar situation.

I had the implant around 2 years ago but it caused terrible anxiety and depression. I had it taken out and saw such a difference.

My gynae has now put me on cerazette and I'm worried my anxiety is returning. Is this possible?

I got to such a bad place last time that it scares me that it could happen again.

Any advice would be really helpful. Xxx

I suffer from anxiety and have for several years. I had the mirena and it put me in deeper depression and anxiety that I had to have my meds increased. Once you experience anxiety it's pretty much not going to go away (hate to say). I had the mirena removed and I feel way better than I did but I still suffer from the long lasting symptoms I experienced. My anxiety is now controlled but only with medication. I'd advice that you speak to your physician about getting on short term anxiety medications instead of Zoloft or buspar. Good luck I know the feeling and it's not something fun to go through.

Sorry to hear this. I was the same, the mirena just made things 100% worse! I just hate the thought of taking all these different meds. It's a tricky one with no improvement without compromising something else. Will get there in the end. Thank you for your support. xxx

Cerazette and Cerelle are basically the same (from what I have been told). This might help in a search to see what others have said as there has been quite a bit of discussion about this pill. Hope this helps. Personally I would never touch Cerelle ever again! But unfortunately you have to try a few pills to figure out which is the right one for you.

Hi

Sorry to read this :(

I am on Cerazette and have to say that although I am an extremely anxious person anyway, every couple of months or so I get REALLY depressed. I can't even bare my boyfriend near me, don't want him touching me and a few times I've almost finished things with him :( I always wondered if it was the pill. Now I'm starting to think it is?

Perhaps go back and discuss things with your GP?

Hi,

Thanks for replying, I can completely relate. January last year I was not in a good way but had the implant out and saw such a difference. I haven't taken anything until my gynae out me on Cerazette. Can't win! I'ts supposed to help with my pain and other symptoms but I can't get to that place again. It scares me and I won't do it.

I will see how I am the next few weeks and if I feel I am slipping again it will be back to the doctors.

Thank you once again for the support and I'm sorry you have to go through this. It really does suck! xxx

Hi I'm on Cerazette as well, and I haven't seen much side effects apart from huge mood swings. I can go from calm to rage in seconds and my poor fiance is always at the receiving end of it. Overall though, I must say that I prefer Cerazette over the combined pill.
