I just got switched to mononessa because I was unhappy with Trivora. Well, I've only been taking it for four days now and already it seems like I'm starting my period when it just ended not even a week ago!! I am extremely upset with this medication.

Last month my pharmacy gave me Mononessa and told me it was the same drug as Sprintec. However, I have experienced weight gain, bloating, acne, and moodiness. I didn't have these symptoms while taking Sprintec. I have decided to stop taking the medication.

I have been on my new pack for three days now and I am still bleeding. I have NEVER had this problem and have decided to stop taking Mononessa and try something else.

I've been getting my period 2 weeks early for 2 mos, in addition to the regular cycle. Increased acne, and weight gain. I did NOT react this way with Sprintec, which they told me was the same as Mononessa.
