I have just spoken to two different pharmacies and they are both telling me that TriNessa wont be available anymore... they switched me to Tri-Sprintec last month and i have NEVER experienced such horrible heartburn from a birth control pill (I've been taking birth control for 17 years). I'll be very sad if TriNessa is discontinued, I will have no choice but to take the brand name Ortho Tri-Cyclen. Does anyone know anything?
Are you sure nothing else is wrong? Tri nessa and Tri sprintec are the exact same medications with the exact same amounts of each. I would be greatly surprised if they weren't making it, didn't find anything on the FDA site. I would not be surprised if their supplier is limiting the number of different types they carry, since it seems every drug company makes their own brand, and many are identical. I would find the manufacturers website and get contact info, and call them and ask if they are discontinuing it.
I don’t know where you are located but im in Mississippi’s and my pharmacy told me the same thing!! And I googled it and found on a website “due to commercial reasons implant decided to discontinue”. I can NOT take the tri-sprintec either! I had heart burn and it didn’t stop my cycle! I called my doctor and they said although the “drugs” are the same different companies use different additives and it can cause different reactions for different people!
