I've been on trivora-28 for six years and they changed me to enpresse because it's the cheaper generic.

Comment:
This is my first month using Enpresse because my pharmacist switched manufacturers. I have been on the pill for 20 years and have never had a worse month than this one - horrible mood swings, severe depression and headaches. Did experience some constipation but did not make the connection until reading the other comments. I am switching back to Trivora - which gave me no adverse side affects. I ha ... Show Full Comment
