I have been on TriNessa for 6 months now and I have decided to stop using it. Let me start with the positive this medicine has cleared up my skin and my hair is no longer falling out!

Took this pill for a year and noticed whenever I started a new pack, I would have abdominal pain,nausea, and frequent bowel movements. This would last for the first 3-4 days. Also gave me mood swings and would feel exhausted!
