I took Orthotri-cyclen for almost 8 years before trying a few other pills out there. I noticed an immediated difference in my moodiness upon stopping! I used to be very emotional for about 3 weeks of the month. I tried Alesse which was okay, but I experienced breakthrough bleeding. Other than that, I realized that a monophasic pill was best for me. I think the steady level of hormone (vs. the changing levels in tricyclics) makes a huge difference! I switched to Yasmin about 1 year ago and I love it! It is pricier for me ($40 month) because my insurance carrier doesn't cover it and there is no generic, but I highly recommend it!
Aviane is the generic form of Alesse.. same thing. I've been taking it for awhile with success. I have to be on low-dose estrogen because of my headaches/migraines.
