Yes, this drug plays havoc with the cycles and hormones.

Please be very careful about birth control while on this drug.  It is highly unlikely that you could conceive but if you did it would lead to birth defects.

My aunt takes this med for arthritis.  She has had severe side effects but has opted to stay on as it is the only thing that gives her any relief.

I'm sending a prayer your way for a lifting of your pain.
