My gp has prescribed microgynon to help with pmt (thats what we guessed it was...bad mood swings and anxiety).

I have started seeing my therapist as I have been a pnd sufferer and have issues that I find talking to her don't seem like issues iykwim.

I have been on microgynon for around 3 months now and moods are up and down. Today I have decided to try eating bananas (apparently contain potassium which helpts pmt) and have bougth vitamin B6 and agnus castus..

The pharmasist said I was ok to take the vitamins with the pill...

is this correct..? says AC is herbal so fine although I managed to find on Kira's website that they don't recommend taking it with hormonal contraceptive , pharmasist put it down to the fact they they want to "cover themselves" should problems appear further down the line..

Advice appreciated please. x

I take AC and it works brilliantly but I would ask your GP about taking it with the pill. The herbal shop workers are not medically qualified afaik.

I would still check with the GP.

I have had contradictory advice.
