I was prescribed tri-spintec in August. It cleared up my acne, but gave me disgusting mood swings and my boyfriend and family and even I couldn't deal with how angry and horrible it made me at certain times. Recently, I broke out a little and I have had a heavy period for over a week now. I am switching due to the mood swings, mainly. I suffer from severe depression and tri-spintec helped me a lot with it and I have not felt depressed in months. I am about to begin gildess fe 120. I am concerned for myself due to the reviews that are mostly terrible-although birth control affects everyone very differently. My main worries are: Will it make my depression come back/more severe (based on anyone that has depression and uses this), does it make lots of people breakout? Should I avoid this pill completely, are there any others that are well known for being great for acne and mood swings? Thanks so much.
alllilesley7; These two brands of birth control are so close to being the same formulation hardly and difference, You should get the same relief you had gotten of the first one. The way they word the side effects etc is what scares some people you should not be anymore worried about this pill then the other one. The side effects would have been the same or very close I know I dispensed alot of both of these and did not hear or see a problem.As long as you take them right and see your doctor for a yearly exam. You might have to talk with the doctor about the big mood swings and try a regular medication for just that at some point but if the added hormone's so far are helping then that is great. You have no more worries with this pill as you did the first one you took. Chuck1957
