Birth Control Board Index

I've been on Ortho Novum 7/7/7 for three months now. The first month the only side effect that I experienced was nausea. After awhile that went away.

Lately I have felt down, and anxious. I am not sure if this relates to what's been going on in my life, or the birth control, or a combination of the two. I was recently in a car accident on the interstate, which has since made me avoid interstates, and has added anxiety to my driving. Any time that I have driven the interstate since, I get very anxious/sweaty/heart races. I only take it if I absolutely have to, otherwise I avoid it.

I've read around the internet that birth control can cause these symptoms, and I'm wondering at what point I might need to go to my doctor. What options would I be given? Would they supplement my BC with anti-depressants/anti-anxiety? Another BC? (But aren't most BC's hormone based?)
