CVS switched my prescription from tri sprinted to this. I've been on tri sprinted for years and until recently I couldn't figure out why I've been so lethargic. Now I realize after reading many reviews that the only thing that has changed is this tri previfem. I have severe lethargy and diarrhea everyday. I'm going to switch back ASAP!

I have been on birth control for the past three years. I was on Tri-Previfem for about 10 1/2 months before I finally had enough and quit. I had been on Ortho Tricyclen-lo and then Trinessa (both of which I loved) before switching to Tri-Previfem because it was the cheapest option.

I've been taking this for over 2 years. I take it exactly the same time each night and so far it has worked well for me. I still have breakouts around the time my period comes but my period is much lighter and shorter.

Comment:
I started taking Tri-Sprintec a year ago and other than a little added curves, I had no problem with it. Just like everyone else, CVS switched me to Tri-Previfem when I came home and obviously needed summer refills. They didn't even give me the option of staying on Sprintec which later made me really annoyed knowing I could still get it as long as I let them know a little bit in advance. As so ...
