I was put on tri-sprintec a few months ago after my regular pill was discontinued..Ive had lots of stomach issues since the-cramps,bloating,naseau, not to mention vag discharge and itching resembling a yeast infection. I thought I was crazy thinking these symptoms were because of this pill, but I am reading lots of the same issues I have.

While this medication was effecitve as I am not pregnant, and I don't find taking a pill a day to be difficult, I do feel that it has altered my moods.

For me,t he side effects are not worth it where there are so many other options.

I was on ortho-tri-cyclen lo for over a year and thought it was great. I switched to Tri-sprintec after I found out it was cheaper. Although my doc did advise to "stick to what you know works." I should have listened, but I had been on tri-sprintec as a teenager and couldn't recall a problem. At first, I didn't notice much difference, but my husband claimed I seemed depressed ...
