Meow cosmetics is good I actually use that right now..I just don't enjoy how drying it is. I use the pampered puss formula because the heaviest formula they carry looks too cakey and dry. The mineral brand I use now instead has a semi matte finish which doesn't make my skin look dried out. And the best part is there's only three ingredients in it! Mica, titanium dioxide and iron oxides. The brand is called caren minerals. You can either order from their website or from amazon. And they offer samples to try before you order full sizes. Purpose is a good facial wash but its rather soapy which can be really harsh and strip your skin. If your looking to switch to all natural skincare I highly recommend ordering from etsy.com its an online shop where people sell handmade skincare and makeup. I order handmade cleansing oil from a shop on there and it works great.

I can recommend an amazing makeup line that causes no breakouts for you ! Wearing the right kind of makeup definitely will help. What types of products are you using on your skin? Also did you experience any weight issues with this pill? Desogen actually made me loose weight so I'm worried about that

In Topic: Switching From Yasmin (Causing Anxiety) To Spiro Instead?

14 January 2014 - 10:54 AM

I feel your pain. Except my issues are reversed. I went on Spiro feeling totally normal and as soon as being on it I developed severe anxiety and panic disorder . I was in and out of the hospital a lot because I felt like I was dying. Soon as I got off I felt right in the head again. No anxiety. It was a miracle. Spiro cleared me but I still have nightmares from what I endured. Which is why I can't try Yasmin because the progesterone in it is identical in composition to Spiro. Drospirenone is a Spiro derivative. I fear that if you go on Spiro it will still continue to give you anxiety but you can always try it.

Hi there! Hope I can help you out a little bit. 3 months isn't enough time in my opinion. I've been taking a pill called desogen and it took close to six months to really see results. I would try and hit the five month mark on ortho cyclen before switching. If you can't get Spiro i would go for Yasmin. Diane has terrible side effects from what I've heard. Keep in mind that the progestin in Yasmin has similar effects to spiro. If I were you if ortho cyclen doesn't work switch to Yasmin and add in a small to moderate dose of Spiro. Start with 25 then go to 50 if you feel OK with the side effects. You won't need to jump to 100 mg if your taking it with Yasmin because again the progestin in Yasmin is anti androgenic.
