I've taken Tri-sprintec for 5 years and have never had one problem except the usual cramps and a slightly heavy flow. Just like the rest of you CVS switched my tri-sprintec to Tr-Previfem without my knowledge or my doctors. My experience with this BC has been horrible. My 1st month on the placebo pills I had more headaches than usual and lower back pain. The 2nd month on the placebo pills and ... Show Full Comment

Comment:
I began taking Tri-Previfem after CVS switched the prescription. Since then I have gained over 10lbs and have embarrassing face, chest, back and shoulder acne.

I became severely depressed and lethargic after taking this for only a couple weeks. I used it for one month and will not want to continue any longer to find out anymore of the crazy side effects!

Comment:
I have taken birth control for over 5 years with no major issues...until now. Like many of you, CVS suddenly gave my Tri Previfem instead of my usual Tri Sprintec the last time I got the prescription filled about a month ago. I read all the horrible reviews on here but decided to give it a chance, anyway. Everything seemed to be going OK until about a week ago when the calf of my left leg started ... Show Full Comment
