I was given tri previfem and liked it for months. My prescription was changed without me noticing due to its continuing refills. I started it on Sunday and felt very sick by Wednesdat. Nausea, intense nasal congestion and drainage, mild fever, severe stomach cramps, bloating, and irritability. Symptoms came on very suddenly and subsided too quickly to be food poisoning, along with my regulated die ... Show Full Comment

originally I was prescribed tri previfem and that worked great with no issues. Then back in April the pharmacy switched to tri estarylla, although it was only for one month before it switched back. That month was awful, my depression started to come back (but at the time I hadn't realized the pull was the cause). Then they switched again in July. This time around my depression got so bad that ... Show Full Comment

I was also given Tri-Estarylla in lieu of Tri-Sprintec. The pharmacy said it was exactly the same and not to worry. After taking this for two weeks, I had to stop and transfer my prescription to another pharmacy that does carry Tri-Sprintec. Tri-Estarylla made me extremely tired, moody, achy, acne and overall did not feel like myself. I will not ever take this again.....

I too was told by the pharmacist that this is what is being substituted. I also agree with the other reviews. HORRIBLE MEDICATION! I have only been on it for 2 weeks and i instantly broke out, and im an emotional wreak, exhausted, and mood swings are intense. Im trying to go back to tri prevefem. Avoid it!

I originally was on a tri-sprintec, but was switched over to tri-estraylla. HORRIBLE. A few days after I started I had terrible mood swings, thundering migraines, nausea, and irregular cycles. I stopped taking tri-sprintec after the symptoms persisted over the course of two weeks. I would not recommend this medication to anyone. Tri-estarylla is a generic version of tri-sprintec, but there ar ... Show Full Comment
