Common Problems With Cryselle
Common Cryselle Side Effects
It is difficult to obtain much information about side effects from studies that do not use a placebo, since there is no way of knowing if any particular problem is actually a side effect of the medication. As a result, only vague information is available about Cryselle side effects. In fact, the side effects listed in the prescribing information for Cryselle are actually side effects of all birth control pills in general. Some of the common bothersome (but usually not dangerous) side effects of birth control pills include but are not limited to:
- Breakthrough bleeding and spotting between periods (especially for the first few cycles)
- Nausea and vomiting
- Changes in your eyes that make it more difficult to wear contact lenses
- Breast tenderness and swelling
- Skin discoloration, especially on the face (known as melasma)
- Headaches (although birth control pills can improve headaches in some women)
- Acne (although birth control pills can also improve acne)
- Changes in sex drive (typically a decrease in sex drive).
You may experience some or none of the Cryselle side effects listed in this article. Unfortunately, it can be difficult to tell whether any particular side effect (such as nausea) is caused by Cryselle or other factors. Therefore, make sure to let your healthcare provider know if you develop any side effects while taking the drug or if something "just does not seem right." While it may not be a side effect of Cryselle, your healthcare provider will be able to diagnose and treat the problem.
