I just began taking Tri-Sprintec 4 days ago. I was taking FemCon Fe previously, which I loved but the cost is $50 a month if uninsured. Tri-Sprintec is only $9 a month. I decided to give it a try. So far, I've it feels like I have an increased blood pressure, although I haven't checked it. I also have bouts of dizziness. I'll give this pill a fair chance and try it for 3 months. ...

Wow! Thank you guys for opening up and posting your symptoms. I'm so glad that I have decided to some research on this drug. I can't believe that so many people are have the same problems as I am.

I had been switched from one pill to this pill and I hate it. The first two months were okay but now I feel sick all the time. I get headaches all the time and my body aches constantly. I gained weight from this pill when I actually lost weight from the first pill I had been on. I am getting off of this pill this week and I would not recommend this pill to anyone.

Overall I'm pleased with this birth control. I was on Ortho Tri cyclen lo but decided to make a switch to this. For me its only 5 dollars a month so how can I complain? I've been on this medication for quite a few months now and I haven't noticed any horrible side effects like many other women on here are talking about. I may get a little more emotional than usual sometimes but it ... Show Full Comment
