I've been taking Mononessa for 4 months now and I haven't had any problems what-so-ever. When I first started it I was hoping my face would clear up, however, it stayed the same. I don't have acne, but my face does break out just like everyone elses. Other than that it's worked fine for me!

I have been taking Mononessa for 3 mos, after being switched over from my usual Sprintec by my mail-order pharmacy. I was assured that it was the same as Sprintec. I have since experienced darkening of the skin above my upper lip, and severe acne. I have never had acne like this before. I was on Sprintec for over a year without these side-effects.

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.
