    Wondering if anyone can help me.. I have been on Yasmin for nearly 8 months for birth control and to help with acne. However, when I recently went to get another pack of pills, they told me Yasmin is now called Lucette. After some research I found out that Lucette is actually a completely different pill that has the same active ingredients as Yasmin but is much cheaper to produce and therefore more cost effective for the NHS. At first I was annoyed that I was lied to by the doctor, but I'm willing to give them a go. Has anyone experienced any side effects changing to this pill? I'm particularly worried about my acne coming back

    Same exact thing happened to me. I've been using it as contraception as well so I'm worried about how effective it is. I havent seen a drastic change in my skin, however I started heavily bleeding in between periods. I've also suffered insanely low blood pressure since I started using it. It was so bad at first that i couldnt leave my bed.
