I've taken other birth control pills and never had a problem. I decided to try Sprintec, because it it one of the $9 per month prescriptions offered at pharmacies. I've been taking it as it is directed for the past 8 months and still continue to heavily spot every month.

Comment:
Although it did prevent pregnancy, there were a lot of unstated side effects. Like others, I have become very emotional, moody, low sex drive, tiredness, and weight gain. I have been on three other types of pills, and this is by far the worst with 'everyday' issues. I cannot wait to go back to my OB-GYN and get on a new pill.

I've been taking this pill for a little under 3 months. I've had massive mood swings and breast tenderness. I am switching to another pill after this pack. I do not recommend using this pill!! My fiance and I call it my "crazy"...
