This medicine gave me extreme breast tenderness the first two months I was on it. I did not get the break outs or weight gain like others had mentioned, but every once in a while I do get break through bleeding in the middle of cycles. It also gives full heavy periods like I had before I got on birth control

I only get hormonal acne, and Sprintec made me break out with 4-5 pretty noticeable pimples. My boobs got a little bigger (not complaining).

Horrible. I had been on Yaz for years and switched due to cost and have been on Sprintec for a month and my face broke out worse than it has ever with red blotchy spots and bumps all over.
