Awful!The pill pack itself is confusing u don't know where to start.I was on Othro tricy for years and they just switched me to the Trinessa. I've gained 7lbs and have very bad breakouts with under the skin pimples 1 every other day! Lots of extra water weight, extreme tiredness and mood swings. I DO NOT RECOMMEND!!!

This medication made my periods horrible, bad mood swings and I am beginning to believe this has caused me a lump in my arm pit-not sure if thats what it is from but never had a problem with such before. Seeing the dr. tomorrow about this. Also bad acne and I have never had acne before. I have stopped it completely and will never take it again.
