I started taking Trinessa for my acne, but since taking it, I seem to be breaking out worse. I've just completed my first pack of pills, and haven't seen a change in my acne. Is it supposed to get worse then better like a lot of acne medicine, or should I try something else?
Trinessa is not officially FDA approved for acne. Yaz, Ortho-Tri-Cyclen Lo, and Estrostep are the only three birth control pills approved. If your acne hasn't improved after an entire month, I'd go back to your doctor (OB/GYN, or whoever prescribed Trinessa) and ask if you could try one of the three pills I mentioned above.
