For Acne "I've been on this medication for 6 months already and my skin is worse than before taking it. I'm have suffered from acne for 17 years, but I had not had any breakouts on my forehead for a long time until I got on this pill. I won't even talk about my chin because it's terrible. I really feel frustrated because I have spent thousands of dollars trying to find a solution for my chronic acne and I have not been successful. I've tried antibiotics, ointments, scrubs, etc... my last resource was this pill and it didn't work."

For Birth Control "I have been on this medication for over 9 years and it works great for me. My periods are way lighter and the pain is much more manageable. It causes no mood swings or weight gain for me. Overall, works great and is very affordable; my insurance covers all of it, but even without insurance it's only $9/month."

For Birth Control "I was originally put on OrthoTricyclin Lo for my acne, but I couldn't afford it so I was switched to trisprintec. Like I said, I was originally put on this for acne, but then my boyfriend and I started having sex so I was using it for it's BC effects too. It has worked WONDERS. My acne has cleared up, I'm not pregnant (you need to take it regularly though! don't forget!), no mood swings, and my periods are shorter and lighter. However, I didn't experience the GOOD side effects till after 3 months in! I was moody, bloated, and nauseous, but my body needed to get used to it. I encourage you to try and stick it out for a bit if you just started and are feeling that way. keep up with it and maybe you'll like it too!"

For Birth Control "Please, listen to you doctor and do not read reviews. I was scared to death when I was reading all these horrible reviews. I've been on this pill for a month now and it's been wonderful. Not moody, I feel it has actually made me more relax and layed back. No bloating. Have not gained weight. Take it correctly and take it at the exact time and everyday."

"I'm into my second month of tri sprintec & I'm always moody, depressed, nausea & cry for no reason. My relationship has gone downhill & I easily get upset. I used to be a cheerful person but lately I don't even smile anymore. I started out on ortho tri cyclen & only switched to tri sprintec at Wal-Mart because it's $9 there & $29 1st Publix. I'm ready to go back to depo but I read it causes calcium decrease. Just not sure anymore about these birth control methods."

For Birth Control "I had been taking ortho tri cyclen lo but had to switch to this generic tri lo sprintec. I started it on vacation with my fiancé in Hawaii and it made me SO moody, irritable, angry, and crazy! Not much can ruin a vaca in Hawaii, but it definitely caused me to start a lot of fights with my s/o. Seriously, these side effects are so real. I'm sure it affects everyone differently, but I'm switching right away. That's the first thing my fiancé said to me too- caused me to not act my normal self, cry about everything and make everything a difficult situation. Such a terrible experience. No babies though.."

For Birth Control "I have been taking this birth control and I can tell you that it is working for me. I used to take another birth control that made me always moody and depressed. But with this birth control I have been the same (actually even more relaxed). I was surprised when I saw so many people talking about the side effects because I've got almost none so far. Sometimes a little headache but that is it. My skin has been getting better and my boobs are also getting a little bigger so that's a plus. My weight has not changed but I am also very active. I hope this helps people to understand that any pill you take, will have a different effect on each individual."

For Birth Control "Well I not pregnant but this pill has killed my sex drive. I had no prior problems with being "turned on" now there's nothing and sex is just painful now. Also pretty sure it's the reason I've been having constant yeast infections for months now."

For Birth Control "I went on this medication because I needed to regulate my periods. I've been on it since January and everyone can tell in depressed. I used to be outgoing and talkative but now my boyfriend can just ask me a simple question and I'll break down and cry."

For Birth Control "I have been on tri sprintec for almost 3 years now. It was pretty bad for months after starting this pill. I had mood swings, I had moments were I felt depressed. I changed for a few months to the patch and depo, I liked the patch which I lost weight on, but I constantly worried it would fall off and the adhesive gave me a rash. Depo made me way to emotion and hungry. I gained weight on the pill but I'm not sure if it was because of the pill or because I started college. I have lost some of the weight since. I love that my periods are predictable and regular as well as short. I still get a few cramps and acne, but that only happens the day before my period. I no longer feel depressed or have crazy mood swings."

For Abnormal Uterine Bleeding "This is the best birth control I've been on. No weight gain at all. And it doesn't make it hard to lose weight. My boobs have gotten bigger. My skin is so clear I get compliments on it ( i used to have bad acne). And most importantly, no babies. I have sex with my SO without condoms so I know it works. I know exactly when my period will come every month. That's a relief because I used to get my period anywhere from every 2-9 months apart. Only side effects is occasional nausea on the first week of each pack. And random headaches but that's not often."

For Birth Control "It's first time taking birth control, so I wasn't completely sure what to expect. I've been taking it for two weeks now and it has made me extremely emotional, nauseous every morning (I take the pill at night), I have no appetite, my boobs are very sore, and I've had spotting after my period for about a week now. I'd say the worst side effect is my emotional state. I went from being a completely optimistic and happy person to feeling depressed and off balance every day. I've cried almost every single day and for no reason. I hate this feeling. I don't feel like myself at all. I'm going to continue with the first three months (unless the effects worsen) only because I already paid for it, but I'll be talking to my dr about switching."

For Birth Control "I started taking this two months ago, I was told it was the generic version of ortho tricyclen. It sucks. I've never had mood swings or anxiety like this before. I get so mad and emotional over the most ridiculous things and usually Im pretty happy and upbeat. It also did nothing for my cramps during my period, they were terrible and that's not an issue I've had on my previous birth control."

For Birth Control "I went on this mostly to clear up my acne and regulate my period. Not worth it, it may have helped a little with the acne and regulating periods but the side effects are terrible. I have always been a chill person and it has made me crazy and gain weight."

For Abnormal Uterine Bleeding "I have been on this since switching from Minastrin 24 Fe mint chewable due to my bad insurance. I have been on tri-sprintec for a month and a half and have noticed feeling bloated and tired. I have gained a few pounds which is scaring me considering I'm 4'10 and never been over 100 lbs and my weight typically remains the same. I workout 6 days a week and eat right and the past few weeks have been hell. I would rather spend $150 a month on my minastrin than ever take this pill ever again. Which is exactly what I'll be doing."

For Birth Control "I have taken Tri Sprintec for 2 months and I refuse to start the third month. It makes me terribly nauseous, to the point where I will throw up about 4 times a day. (it happened so often I thought I was actually pregnant, which I am not). I have never been a sad person but since I started taking this pill I have been extremely depressed and have had terrible mood swings. It also causes tenderness of my boobs that I've never felt before and is extremely uncomfortable. Everyone's bodies are different but I had a horrible experience with this pill."

For Acne "I've been on this pill for 12 months, and I hate it. For the first 6 months I was super moody...I'm actually convinced it ruined my last relationship bc it made me nuts. But sadly I stayed on it because I was desperate for clear skin, and it pretty much gave me that. HOWEVER, beginning seven months, my poor face started to suffer. It's only gotten worse....the only reason now that I've stayed on it is because it's really regulated my period. But my skin is dead...cysts on my forehead (I've never broken out on my forehead), cysts all over my cheeks...jawline...occasionally nose and chin. It's really sad and takes an unfortunate emotional toll. I'm stopping tonight and won't go back on this pill again. Try Velivet, I've heard great things."

For Birth Control "It took me a while before I was able to find a BC that really worked for me. I had taken one that was supposed to give me 4 periods a year BUT instead I ended up spotting everyday and having mood swings. Then I tried the Depo shot (which I loved) but my mom was extremely terrified of what it might do to me because of the bad experience she had with it. I got off because of her. So, I decided to get back on the very first one that I was on, which was ortho tri cyclen lo, but my doctor told me about Trisprintec and how relatively cheaper it was compared to ortho tri cyclen lo and how it does the same thing (it%u2019s the generic brand of ortho). Let me say, it has been the BEST birth control that I have ever taken! I don%u2019t ever have side effects. It%u2019s like everything is normal and it%u2019s doing its job. It actually shocked me when I saw there were people who were having horrible experiences with this BC but everyone%u2019s body is different. It%u2019s extremely cost effective and works like a charm on my end."

For Birth Control "I started taking Tri Sprintec as my first birth control. I needed something that was going to take away my nausea and vomitting when it came time for my period to start. It did just that. But now I'm nauseous all the time, I have terrible cramps all of the time. I have terrible, terrible mood swings. Not to mention the weight gain and my boobs got bigger. Now the boobs getting bigger part isn't bad, it's painful when your breasts are just really tender all of the time. Not to mention sex became painful while taking this. I do not recommend this drug. I've been taking it for 3 months now and I hate it. 3 months of pure suck. I'll definitely be getting a different pill on my next appointment."

For Abnormal Uterine Bleeding "I started taking these after being hospitalized and given blood transfusions and iron. They recommended this and said it would help me. The first two weeks it did help a little. The third week is when everything started to change. I realized I had no energy to get out of bed. Simple things like brushing my teeth or taking a shower felt like the hardest things to do. I didn't want anyone to talk to me. I lost interest in my favorite tv shows and other things I always used to enjoy. My hair started falling out and I was always nauseous. I wouldn't eat ANYTHING! I started having heart palpitations and walking from one room to the next made me fatigued and dizzy. My body began to shut down. I do not recommend!!!"
