I JUST started taking this medicine. I am on my second week and 4th day. I can tell the difference... I have gained a few pounds (Not a problem trying to gain weight anyway xD) BUT I will CRY over NOTHING. It has made me depressed, but I am slowly coming out of it :) I am going to continue to take it and just hope it passes :) But no other complaints so far!:D

I was on TriSprintec for a little over 4 years and was very satisfied with that BC, never had any problems or complaints. Then my pharmacy switched me over to TriPrevifem.

After going off this I had terrible depression, anxiety, fear, a sense of hopelessness and so on. I would be very cautious before going on BC, it messes with y ... Show Full Comment

Like most posters here I was switched from TriSprintec to tri previfem because it's cheaper. Since the switch I've noticed a huge change in my mood and not for the better. I get incredibly depressed and cry at almost anything which never happened before. I'm not an emotional person but its changed my relationship with my boyfriend and my roommates. My acne got worse as well and I had a ... Show Full Comment
