Are headaches common while taking Triphasil for birth control and Effexor for anxiety or depression?
I don't know what the correlation is between birth control and anxiety/depression medication but I do know that one of the side effects of taking the birth control pill is headaches, especially when you first start taking it. I agree with anonymous above, headaches is a common side effect when first taking the pill. I am on my second pack and my headaches can get pretty bad. As far as the anxiety/depression medication, you might want to ask your doctor but if the doctor prescribed your pills knowing you were on that medication you might be fine because they prescribe the pill that would be right for you based on your medical history. ask your Dr or pharmacist. i take both, and i do get bad headaches sometimes. headaches and migraines are a side effect of Effexor also, along w/ the pill I believe that headaches/migraines occur with Effexor especially if you don't take it close to the same time every day. Being off by just a little bit seemed to cause major headaches and nausea when I was on it. Withdrawal.

Can taking birth control add to your anxiety and depression?
Get off the birth control pill! It is known to cause breast cancer, clotting and in some cases strokes. That little pill is simply not worth it. Talk to your doctor if you are sexually active as there are other options you could be using. YES!! I used to take Ortho Evra and I was a nut case. I was depressed and emotional all the time. My sister can't take anything so far or she is real emotinal. I started taking the shot and I think that because it has no estrogen it is better for me. Hormones make your body act in different ways and some forms of birth control have hormones that others don't. I would keep trying until you found the right one for you, you don't have to feel as bad as some will make you feel. Yes and no. Some can increase anxiety and depression, and some don't. I started birth control to help with my depression and anxiety, and it works very well. It varies from person to person. Talk to your doctor to find a birth control that would work best for you. I had to try a few different kinds of pills until I got one that helped reduce depression and anxiety. I would ask ablout a low hormon birth control pill,they are usually used in pre menapausal women .I was having a lot of trouble with my bc pills making my anxiety worse and then my Dr. put me on I forget the name but it helped.
