    I have overall been very happy with this medication...I had never been on any other Birth Controls before though but I like it. I've been on it over a year now and my acne has significantly gotten better (I was once a taker of accutane and had WAY WORSE side effects than this Birth Control so far).

    I switched from ortho-cyclen to sprintec and I cant wait to start my regualr ortho cyclen again, the generic brand is not worth the savings in money. I have experienced horrible mood swings, cramping, and lots of discharge. The only good thing about this is that it has cleared up my acne.

    While I had no problems using Tri-Sprintec (missed it once in 7 months, set a timer every day so I took it between 9:20pm-9:30 every night), I began to experience side effects afters my 5th month using it. Hair loss, high blood pressure, hot flashes, mood swings, lots of crying. I was put on blood pressure meds by my doctor after having an anxiety attack one night. During the anxiety attack I e ...
