Melodene
Hi

I buy Melodene every month cash, which works out to R1200 per year I spend. Is there anything else available that is just like or very similar to Melodene but maybe cheaper or free?

Curious, you get what you pay for. Melodene® is a good drug with very few side effects. The cheaper older drugs are just as effective contraceptive wise, but you might experience side effects like weight gain, mood swings, pigmentation, etc. Good luck.
