Quitting combi-patch

Posted by kp1013 (My Page) on

I have stopped using the combi-patch after a couple of years of use due to a mild heart attack. I have no risk factors or evidence of heart disease. My doctors think it was due to the patch. Since I stopped taking the patch a week ago, I have been experiencing severe headaches. Anyone know about the side effects of quitting?

Thanks do much for any information.

Hi there
I wasn't on the patch but on Activella for 2 years and when I stopped cold turkey had severe headaches for at least 2 weeks, now been off 4 months and haven't had anymore. Other symptoms of quitting are bad in the first 3 months but then they do start to ease off, just have to keep your body well nourished and take it easy, good luck!
