Sronyx Side Effects

Although most women do not experience problems when taking Sronyx, side effects are possible. Common reactions include spotting between periods, bloating, and headaches. Notify your healthcare provider immediately if you develop any serious problems with Sronyx, such as high cholesterol, migraines, or vision changes.

An Introduction to Sronyx Side Effects

Sronyx™ (levonorgestrel/ethinyl estradiol) is a generic version of Levlite®. As with any medicine, side effects are possible with Sronyx; however, not all women who use the contraceptive will experience side effects. In fact, most women tolerate it quite well. If side effects do occur, in most cases, they are minor and either require no treatment or can easily be treated by you or your healthcare provider.
(This article covers many, but not all, of the possible side effects with Sronyx. Your healthcare provider can discuss a more complete list of Sronyx side effects with you.)
