My pharmacy switched me from Trivora to Enpresse because it was cheaper.

This substitution B-S should be illegal!!! ... Show Full Comment

Just started taking this pill for about 3 days and have been getting headaches that feel like migranes. Feeling light headed and wanting to vomit. I've never had side effects with the bc pill but with this one i have.

I had also been on Trivora and received Enpresse when I went to get my refill. This is my first month taking it and I have experienced a significant increase in appetite as well as extreme moodiness! I am in the process of trying to get a new prescription from my doctor
