i have some acne and the dr said that Ortho Tri Cyclen would help with that issue, but the pharmacy gave me the generic one called Tri Sprintec? has anyone heard any good things on Tri Sprintec? how does it compare to Ortho Tri Cyclen? ive never tried either one im about to start my new pack in about a week. ive done a bit of research but all i am hearing is not so much good things on either one? Im so worried its going to give me a whole bunch of crazy side affects? ive never been on any type of birth control pill so im going crazy worrying!
Be reassured that all medicines have side-effects but not everyone experiences them and they are impossible to predict.
If you are particularly concerned about the side-effects there are of course other contraceptive options.

You need not worry about being given Tri Sprintec. It is the same as Ortho Tri Cyclen except it is made by a different drug company.

All the best.
