Default depression

I am relieved to read some of the comments re: the patch. I have been on the patch for about a year and a half now and over the last 4 months or so the side effects have been getting worse and clockwork, about two days after I take the 3rd patch off I get horrible headaches that cause me to throw up and they usually last at least 3 days. Really bad depression the week I get my period- almost suicidal- way more severe than it's ever been on the pill... not to mention I am fiercly irritable the week I have the 3rd patch on. I realize that these are common and sometimes expected symptoms of pms but I have never experienced these symptoms so bad before. I thought I was losing my mind!!! I thought the patch was great at first but like a number of women have mentioned the symptoms get worse and worse the longer you are on it.
