    This is the first type of birth control I have been on and have been taking Sprintec for almost a month. since I have taken this pill I feel like I am going crazy! I experience over the top mood swings, uncontrollable crying episodes, and extreme lack of motivation. I am always tired and have a hard time sleeping at night. My whole body itches all the time (it drives me even more nuts!!!) and ... Show Full Comment

    I have been on Sprintec since February of 2008. I was engaged at the time and wanted to go on birth control before I was married. Almost immediately, I felt like a completely different person. I over-analyzed everythin and became depressed. Not to mention I gained about 5 pounds. I was so depressed and down that I called off my wedding to the love of my life. I am still on it and am getting ... Show Full Comment
