I never stopped bleeding with this pill, and have been nauseous every single day I've been on it....I have even vomitted from being so nauseous. My breasts were also very tender, almost painful. I've finished the first month, but called my doctor and made them call in a different pill.

I have been taking this medication for 2 weeks to help clear up my acne. My acne is worse, I have nausea, I can't eat, I'm spotting, and I have terrible mood swings. I'm calling my doctor to switch immediately. My boyfriend can't even stand me any more and I cry all the time. Do NOT take this medication.

I've just started my 2nd pack and after reading all of these (and many other) comments i've realized it must be Tri-Sprintec that is responsible for my horrendous mood swings, strange cravings, and horrible skin.

I was on Ortho TriCyclen for about 5 years prior to having my second son. After his birth, my insurance made me get the generic, Tri Sprintec. What a HORRIBLE experience! I've been on it for over a year now and my dr still doesn't think it's the pill. STRESS can cause ALL the symptoms I have. Well, I know my body and know that this is not normal. I have spotting several times betwe ... Show Full Comment
