I'm so glad I found this site. It gives me hope that I can finally be free of the pill. I stopped taking my BC in September of this year because it was driving me crazy (anxiety, depression, loss of sex drive). I had been on it for 15 years. I am happy to say that so far, my periods seem to have hit a routine and the anxiety mood issues are gone. But I have insomnia now. I don't know what to do. I don't want to take yet another drug to assist with it, but fear I may have to. I've been reading on this site about melatonin, but do I have to take that forever? Does this insomnia go away?
