After reading the posts about this drug, I was afraid to see the reactions I'd have. But I have not had one side effect that anyone has posted. A little nausea the first 3 days or so, but that was expected. Since then (3 months ago) I've been completely fine.

I must say that I've been on this pill for almost 3 years and have had no problems with it, I actually switched from another bran to this one!

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.
