Could depression be side effect of diane 35?

Hi I have been taking Diane 35 since I was 17 years old, I m 41 now and I stopped the pill 3 weeks ago. I am a very active person but lately I have been feeling lazy, I don t have the desire to workout and I m feeling depress. Is this a related side effect to be off Diane 35?

Depression is a known side effect of Diane 35.

It is related to the change of hormones in the system.

These symptoms will go away on its own.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

My 17 year old son is taking Minocycline - 100mg for acne and has been taking it for years. He has also been suffering from mild to moderate depression for years but has recently been suffering from severe depression. Could there be a correlation between the two?

I have stage 1 breast cancer, non invasive of lymph nodes, had surgery to remove cells, followed by radiation. Now on Femara for about a month. I am 78 years old but been very active, ballroom dancing and competitions. I seem to have a sense of desperation, maybe just depression. I can t decide if it is just a normal reaction to all I have been through or the Femara that I have been taking. Lost interest in dancing and really uncomfortable around other people. Will see my doctor in about a week, do you advise trying another form of the pill I am taking?

I am 60 years old and have been on Premarin vaginal cream for 6 months. I have anxiety that pops up now and then during the day but is especially bad at night. I feel anxious before bed knowing I probably won t sleep and usually I don t sleep well. I will sleep for about 3 hours and then I am awake a good part of the rest of the night, my mind racing and sometimes my breathing more rapid and heavier than it should be. Heart feels like it is beating too fast and I usually can t remember what I had been thinking about just minutes before. I have chills during the day and feel like my mind is foggy most of the time. I also tend to feel depressed at times also. Could these be side effects on the Premarin? Or should I be looking at something else?
