    Been on the pill (rigevidon) for 3 months now and the first week I took it I threw up and couldn't sleep and cried everyday - it was horrible. It's sort of died down a little but I'm just finding myself a lot more emotional and anxious than I used to be - especially with exams coming up but also especially getting paranoid about my relationship - my boyfriend would never do anything to hurt me but I just keep getting irrational thoughts and panicking about things + overthinking. I can't remember being like this before the pill so am thinking of changing pills?

    I know it's been a day since posting but I hope you'll read this.

    I was on Rigividon for a medical condition (I also have anxiety) and it made me feel slightly worse than what I was normally, but it was bearable and not as bad as you. If its making your anxiety as unbearable as it sounds then definitely see if you can change pills. I was moved onto Gederal after Rigividon which uses a different hormone that I've found to be slightly different. The pills all have different effects on us depending on who we are so its worth it.

    As for your boyfriend if you're sure its anxiety then keep telling yourself its just the bad thoughts. But gut feelings can sometimes be right.
