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. It hit me this morning that the only thing I've changed in my lifestyle recently was the pill. I read the reviews and confirmed my thoughts, Tri-Previfem is the source of problem. Stopping the pill immediately and hope things get back t ... Show Full Comment

CVS Pharmacy switched me over to this from Tri-Sprintec, without my or my Doctor's permission. The first two weeks of this medication I had spotting. My emotions started going down hill from there. I've gained about 10 lbs. I have gained painful acne on my face, back, and shoulders. I stopped taking it at 2.5 months because I began to get irritated and cry over the most trivial matters. I& ...

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.

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!
