Ask Dr. Townsend Q&A's
Name: Ashley

Hi, I am a 20 year old mother of 3 with Panic Disorder. I was on Yasmin for 5 months and I began getting depressed. After I came off I got a lot better. Is it possible for me to find a different pill that will not make me feel so down. My Dr. Wanted me to just keep trying different brands, but after 3 I just to irritated! Do think any pills are better for people with mental health issues than others?

I have no idea. it may be related to the amoun tof hormones in the pills. perhaps an endocrinologist could answer your question.
