    Extreme nausea in the first few days of a new pack. On this for four months. Too soon to tell about any other side effects. The nausea is worse than any I've ever experienced.

    I was on Tri-Sprintec for many years with no negative side effects. My cycle was very predictable, light flow, and lasted only a few days. I recently switched to Walgreen's version, Tri-Nessa, and began to have blood pressure and health issues, that I assusme are related. However, the few pimples that I would get around my cycle no longer appear. I plan to switch back to Tri-Sprintec at CV ... Show Full Comment

    I have been taking this pill for 3 months now. I was put on Tri-sprintec because I was having horrible side effects from my previous pill Camila. Before I started Tri-sprintec I read all of the reviews and was really scared and didn't want to try it. But I decided to give it a try anyway. Since I started my face is clear, my periods are predictable and a lot shorter, hardly any cramping, prett ... Show Full Comment

    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. I have also gained 8 pounds that I am unab ... Show Full Comment

    I recently decided to give the pill a chance after being on Ortho Evra (patch) and NuvaRing. I was first prescribed Ortho Tri-Cyclen Lo which was great, but very expensive. 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. I have had clear skin thr ... Show Full Comment
