When my pharmacy switched me to this from Ortho Tri Cyclen Lo, I was livid. I went to this website and read horror stories then went back to the pharmacy to switch my medication back, but they said it would cost me over $200 with my prescription plan. So, as you can imagine, I kept this free generic version. Well, so far. So the same. I haven't noticed one difference and I've been on this for 6 mo...

I was on tri-lo-sprintec for months. I could not figure out why all the sudden I would be furious about something insignificant, then feel like crying 10 minutes later than back to normal. I had terrible itching on the back of my calves-would keep me up at night. I relied on my glasses more (my vision was worse), my periods were terrible and I would feel dizzy. Some occasions my shortness of br...

I’m gonna make this more realistic than some of the other reviews. Some people do not seem to realize that everybody’s bodies are different and are going to handle hormones differently, so something that doesn’t work for your body may work for someone else’s, vice versa. Personally i’ve only been on Tri lo sprintec for a month. I’ve noticed some good and bad changes. I got intensely dry skin first thing, i have naturally very oily skin. I broke out in dry acne first thing, but it all went away very quickly and now my skin is the clearest it’s been in a long time. I’ve gained a couple pounds, i was 115 when i started taking the pills. I’m at 117 now and have noticed more weight in my legs and hips, i’m not complaining. My period is also insanely light, i just started a few days ago and there’s almost no pain either. Granted, my breasts have also been quite swollen and it’s uncomfortable to sleep on my stomach, this is a first. Overall i don’t hate this experience so far. If you haven’t tried birth control of any type before, I’d start here and if you don’t like it, stop anytime and try something else.

I’ve been on this for at least 2 years. It does not cause me to have acne, mood swings, or irregular periods. My periods are shorter, lighter and less painful (Almost painless)

When I was taking it I noticed almost all the side effects ranging from dizziness to weight gain, to almost everything. Soon as I stopped taking it I lost 50lbs in 3 months. I will never take it again, I do NOT think this is a good option and it has made me think about not getting any other birth control options. The best birth control option is to keep your legs CLOSED!

I am just finished with my third month and it has made my period lighter on the third month. The first 2 months were a heavier period maybe because my body was getting used to it and I also experienced headaches and nausea at first but it has been wokring so far.

Well. To begin, just about every side effect listed â?? I ENCOUNTERED! This was my 3rd birth control and by far the worse. After 5 days of taking, bumps and acne began to appear on my face at an alarming rate, I normally maintain bump free skin but tri-lo changed that. Feelings of nausea and headaches were also experienced. My doctor told me that I may experience this but should stop after about 3 months. I was so annoyed that I didnâ??t even last one month. As bad as it had me feeling, I threw the left over packs in the trash can. Never again will I ever!!! Of course every womanâ??s body is different but this did not work for me.
