I was very disappointed with the side effects of this drug. I have never experienced such negative ones when taking birth control and I have been on birth control for some time.

I've been on Sprintec since the beginning of '09. I am about to call the doctor and get it switched!!! 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!!!

Comment:
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. SO it worked in the sense that I havent gotten pregnant, but for the last few months I have been so broken out like I was a teenager again! I also have been very moody. Wouldnt recommend this to anyone.
