switching from yasmin to ortho lo

I was on Loestrin 24 for awhile but switched because of too much breakthrough bleeding. Right now I'm on my sixth pack of Yasmin but am switching to ortho tri cyclen lo after this pack. The Yasmin stopped the breakthrough bleeding but made me crazy, so I'm finally able to switch.
Has anyone made the switch from yasmin to ortho lo? I'm afraid that going down to a slightly less amount of estrogen is going to make me start bleeding a lot again.
Anyone who is on ortho lo, what was the beginning like?

I've never switched from a monophasic pill to a triphasic pill, but I have used both (monophasic between pregnancies and triphasic prior to pregnancy - they were planned pregnancies and not the result of ineffective pills).
