    my doctor prescribed one set of pills for days 1 -14 of the month and then another set for the last 15...without any relationship to the dates of my period .. does this make sense to any of you. Also, i feel like crap since taking it with my mood during my period being in the pits. ANy help? Thanks.

    Usually the days they describe are in relationship to the dates of your period. I take my pills from day 14 through 28 and then have my period. My Dr initially had me take a higher dose for everyday except when I was on my period, but that made me about crazy. I was bleeding all month and crabby and weepy. First she halfed my dose, and then the next month reduced the days to only days 14 through 28. Now it seems to be working better.

    It's supposed to help with moods, but for me it didn't and it sounds that way for you too.

    Tell you dr what's going on, you may need a dosage adjustment.

    Good Luck!!!
