I switched from Ortho Lo to Tri-Sprintec due to the cost difference, but wish now i hadn't. I have read every review and only 1 person has stated they have had hair loss. My hair has been coming out in handfuls since i started taking this pill. I have been taking it for 5 months and only recently made the connection between the pill and hair loss.

My presciption was changed to Orhto Tri-Cyclen and as a result I was given the generic, Tri-Sprintec. Aside from getting used to the daily pill regime, the side effect of acne was indeed the worst.

Comment:
So far I absolutely hate this drug. The side effects are terrible...I've experienced severe mood swings, depression, anxiety, and paranoia. I've also had bad cramping and body aches. I haven't gained weight yet, but it makes my appetite unbearable, I'm either starving or have NO appetite at all. The only positive result is that my skin has cleared significantly.
