Loryna Side Effects

Clinical trials have shown that possible side effects of the brand-name form of Loryna may include nausea, headaches, and a decreased sex drive, just to name a few. In most cases, reactions to this contraceptive are minor and easy to treat. However, contact your healthcare provider if you experience more serious problems, such a severe headaches, vision or speech changes, or coughing up blood.

Just like any medicine, side effects are possible with Loryna™ (drospirenone/ethinyl estradiol). However, not everyone who uses the contraceptive will have problems. In fact, most people tolerate it quite well. If side effects do occur, in most cases, they are minor and either require no treatment or are treated easily by you or your healthcare provider.
