I have been using Tri-Sprintec for a little over a year and have very little problems.

I am on the second day with Tr-Sprintec. I have never used this drug before. I am very depressed. I find myself crying over little things. I have very dark urine and it is foul-smelling. i have yellowish vaginal secretions. i do not like this drug. i prefer Trinessa.
