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 didn't realize that so many problems could be connected to my birth control. I began taking Tri-Sprintec-28 about 5 months ago. I have been having such severe mood swings, lack of abil ...

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

I've been taking this medication for 4 months now (starting 5th month tomorrow). The first 2 weeks I had nauseous feelings and mood swings but it could also be because I was stressing over finals in school. After the first month things were okay, I did spot light when I was late on a pill (about an hour) but that went away quickly. My "period" or withdrawal bleeding started on the ... Show Full Comment
