CVS gave this to me a couple months ago instead of Tri sprintec, and ever since I started taking this everything has went downhill. I've gained about 15 lbs, have terrible mood swings, get depressed for no reason, and i'm very emotional at all times. It also has CAUSED me to have acne. The only positive thing that has come from it is that i'm not pregnant. Getting switched back ASAP!

Upon starting this medication, I immediately noticed a change in my mood. My patience and ability to deal with stress is not what it once was. I find myself crying througout the day for various reasons. Prior to taking this medication, I used an anti-anxiety drug that I would take at the onsight of anxiety. However, after starting the Tri-Previfem, I've had to start taking the anti-anxiety med ... Show Full Comment

I gained over 10 lbs in 1.5 months. Companies that tell you it's a myth, well it's complete bullshit. They know that will stop many patients from taking it, who wants to gain that much weight? I've been off for a week now & have lost 5 lbs. WALKING PROOF. (also, I commented below I have never had a past with panic attacks or anxiety until taking this drug)

CVS game me this instead of my usual Trisprintec. I hate it! I have gained 10 lbs in 2 months (with no change in diet or exercise), have crazy dreams, and the packaging is ridiculous! Stupid blue dots all over my bathroom. Yes it has kept me from getting pregnant, but so did Trisprintec with no other side effects or annoying traits. Switching back ASAP and if CVS can't accommodate I will find ... Show Full Comment
