    I started this last month because it was cheaper than my previous one and I haven't had any problems with it. I have had some mood swings but I've had alot of stressful exams lately so its hard to say it was the pill. My period was actually lighter this first month I've taken it. Other than that I haven't had any other symptoms. Overall pretty good for the money.

    This pill was prescribed as a generic to me for the Lo-ovral. I had the most intense mood swings, and thought I was literally going crazy. My boyfriend and I fought for the three days I let myself be on this, before I went to my Dr. and demanded a different pill. My boyfriend and I now refer to this pill as my crazy pill. My advice, do not even mess with it, even if your Dr. tries to push it on yo ... Show Full Comment

I thought I had become lactose intolerant after my first child, but nope...as soon as I went off of sprintec to get pregnant again problem solved. I was so upset my doctor had convinced me it wa ...
