Due to my insurance not covering my LoEstrin, I had to switch to the cheapo Sprintec that has made me nothing but an emotional and depressed wreck!!!

The first few months on this pill were ok. I'm in my late 20's and havent had a problem with acne since I was 16 or so.

I did feel a little sick to my stomach for a few days after starting this pill. But other than that it's a really good drug. Haven't had any change in my sexual desire either.
