Comments from related studies:

  • From this study (2 months ago):

  • Started taking Norinyl 1-35 for 28 days in Jan 2014, during first week of second month started getting skin itching/burning sensations. Then abdominal burning and nausea started, increasing daily. I stopped this medication for 3 doses. The burning decreased after the second day. So I tried 1 dose, the burning started again within 12 hours.
    Period started 2nd day of the 4th week, then again 2 weeks later(second day of missed doses).
    Increase in mental clarity and mood was nice, but restless leg symptoms returned.
