    Mine are that brand, but the lower version. 35 I think. Or the generic equivalent.

    not a good idea- have increased risks of all the bad things estrogen can cause. Why are you or whoever still on it? Breakthrough bleeding?

    I took them before I had my tubal ligation. I did take Norlestrin 50 but they quit making it. There was only 1 manufacturer of the "50" pills left which is why I had my tubes tied. Everyone in my family who took the lower dose pill got pregnant. The idiot physician I had when my first daughter was born insisted I try the lower dose pills. Nothing but problems for 2 months and I said that was it. Chucked the low dose pills and the idiot doctor. My blood pressure is on the low side and even when I took the "50", I barely hit 100 as the top number.
