Asked by Arlene Ricciardi 4 months ago.
Is Sprintec different from Tri-Sprintec? I personally have found that the BC pills that have three levels of hormones don't give me the weight issue like the kinds that have the same amount of hormones in each pill (what are they called...triphasic pills or something like that...the ones with a different color every week) It looks like Sprintec is a "PROGESTIN / ESTROGEN" pill - seems like a pretty classic combo (these are the hormones I usually hear about with weight gain side effects) but let's see...Yaz uses drosperinone & ethinyl estradiol...hmm...so that's different from what's in Sprintec, you can probably expect different side effects from it. The birth control I use though has that ethinyl in it too, and I never gained weight - but everyone reacts differently. It seems to me that if you have less periods, you tend to gain more weight. Yaz isn't a 28 day cycle, right? The shot - which ends up stopping your period while you take it - is the form of BC I've known to have the most weight gain side effects while on it. I assume that Sprintec will not make you gain as much weight - if any. I can personally recommend Ortho Tri Cyclen, but then again my girfriend swears by the NuvaRing because she feels great and didn't gain weight for the first time on BC. Most women have a form of BC that they swear by, so maybe Sprintec will be the one for you because you'll experience no side effects! This is just like a trial and error type thing though, because every body is different. (^_^) Answered by Elinor Bourlier 4 months ago.
The simplest hormonal beginning manage pr oven to purpose weight obtain is the dept-provera shot. 'The capsule' can purpose moderate water retension, however does now not purpose weight obtain.

I was on Tri-Sprintec for about 3 months-after about a year of trying 3 other pills. I'm taking them for severe cramps. I found that I was really mean the week before my period on Tri-Sprintec. My doc changed me to Sprintec. She told me the difference is on Tri-Sprintec the hormone levels start off high the first week and lessen each week until the week of your period when there is nothing. On the Sprintec the hormone levels are the same each week. She told be to try this and if I respond well, I could actually use these to have a period every 3 months. (Something to think about.) As far as price, it was $20/month for each of those where I am with no insurance. Hope this helps! Answered by Shelby Tremelling 4 months ago.
Are there anything good about the tri-sprintec tablet brr birth control?
Well i went picked up my birth controll today. How i am i go look it up online . Nothing but bad stuff about it . Now i am wondering just to take it back .
Asked by Karima Vanheukelem 4 months ago.
Tri-Sprintec is simply a generic form of Ortho Tri-Cyclen - there is nothing wrong with it, it's just some people like to go online and complain about every pill they're on, especially if it's a generic. I've tried 2 different Ortho Tri-Cyclen generics, TriNessa and Tri-Previfem, and both were fine for me(even though there's all kinds of awful feedback online for those generics as well). I think the website Askapatient.com is full of a bunch of complainers out to scare people. However, I had absolutely no problems and since they were generic they were super cheap. I have now switched to Yaz because I wanted to have shorter periods and I'm very happy with it, although my price for birth control has doubled since Yaz is a brand name drug and there is no generic equivalent. Bottom line, try Tri-Sprintec. If it works for you, then ignore all the negative information on the internet - most people do. If it doesn't work, talk to your doctor about trying something else. Answered by Tamela Coughlan 4 months ago.
i was on tri-sprintec. there's nothing wrong with it. i was on it for a few months. the only reason i'm getting off it now is because i hear yaz is better, but i never experienced anything negative from it except weight gain, but that's common with most pill brands. i guess it just depends. everybody's body is different. i was fortunate enough to have never had any negative experiences with any pills, but maybe there are other people who's body rejects that particular kind. honestly tri-sprintec is the same thing as orthotricyclin which lots of people have claimed to love, but it's just the generic version. go ahead and try it out for a month and see what happens.

But what if you get prescribed Tri-Sprintec? The two generics for Ortho Tri-cyclen are Trinessa and Tri-Sprintec. But Trinessa got HORRIBLE reviews. So wouldn't Tri-Sprintec be bad as well?

Tri-Sprintec is the worse,I have been on it for like 2 weeks now and I am still on my period. I was on the tri-nessa at first with no problems but when I went to the pharmacy to get the refill the pharmacy told me that they were out of the Tri-nessa so they gave me the Tri-Sprintec instead and she assured me that they were the same thing but of course they are not and I have been bleeding ever since.I know everone is different but this is horrible and because my doctor gave me 11 refills and I cant go through this that long! I ended up calling the doctor so he could call in to another pharmacy to get the Tri-nessa but my insurance wont even pay for it until these pills are used or at least until the time is up.So I'm anticipating by the 6th of October I should be free and clear of my menstual after the Tri-nessa kicks in.

Tri Sprintec Reviews Answered by Annemarie Beisel 4 months ago.
Dry and/or greasy skin due to poor oil composition of the skin. Thick greasy oils clog pores, lack of oil leads to dryness and irritation. You need thin oils to moisturize while dissolving and clearing gunk in your poors. Try fish oil or seafood. 2 tsp fish oil a day or 4 servings of seafood a week. Stick it out for at least 2 months; it will take a long time to replace all your oil. Any effect after 1-2 days is temporary or random; so even if it makes you break out a little at first, you haven't given it a full try yet. In the short term you can wash and moisturize well, but that will only go so far. Plus excessive washing can be drying and excessive moisturizing can be clogging. Use a small amount of a light moisturizer, made with oil not jelly or grease. Often that means soybean oil or mineral oil. Mineral oil means mined from the ground. So soybean oil is usually better, though mineral oil won't cause too much harm. Clean with soap and water, not a harsh acne cleanser. Even then they only work so well. So you really need the seafood. Antibiotics aren't really good for bacteria long term, they'll come back in force after. Short term they may help. After you get off them find some kefir with acidophilus listed first or 2nd to replace the friendly bacteria they destroyed. Studies show less illness when you have these bacteria, even outside the stomach in places such as the lungs and elsewhere. You want friendly bacteria to fill the void when the antibiotics stop, not harmful ones. In the short term you might also try 100,000+ iu retinol vitamin A (a megadose, and too much for normal use) or one of the acne drugs that is similar to retinol vitamin A. It's some minor harm to your organs, but it helps against bacteria on your skin. At least it doesn't have the other long term drawbacks to your skin that antibiotics and many scrubs do.

Tri-Sprintec has horrible reviews as well, and after I was prescribed it, I discovered this. I was really weary, but I took them anyways and honestly, I've been completely fine on them. My period is always on time, my acne has cleared up, and I'm not nauseous or tired. The only time I ever felt dizzy on it was the morning after my first pill the night before. I think I was worried about feeling dizzy because so many people who had taken it had reported that, and it was kind of a placebo effect.

Asked by Sandee Mohring 4 months ago.
I was on Tri-Sprintec for a couple of years- It's OK, no complaints. I don't know anything about Mircette though. I stopped taking Tri-Sprintec and switched to Nuva Ring because I hate taking pills everyday. I've been on the ring for six months now and really like it. At first it was a bit weird putting it in and taking it out but that is no longer an issue- you just get used to it and you don't even feel it. I haven't had any side affects from it, haven't gained weight or had mood swings or anything. If you're thinking about changing up your birth control, think about the ring.

Sprintec and Tri-Sprintec are similar but different. With Sprintec, the norgestimate dose remains the same, but with Tri-Sprintec, the dose increases. Sprintec is what is called a monophasic birth control pill and Tri-Sprintec is a triphasic pill. Answered by Brain Radilla 4 months ago.

Asked by Mariel Spalter 4 months ago.
When i told my doctor that i've been missing my periods for months due to stress he put me on this birth controll called Tri Sprintec he said it would be best to take that since he thinks it would regulate my periods. I've been taking it for 4 months now and still have not gotten my period. I've been swelling up in my stomic only after i eat in the morning then it stays like that through the whole day. I told my doctor about this he said its normal and i told him i want off of it since it an't helping. He told to finish the last pack of this month and i can stop it. Well I've notice that when i wake up in the morning and i lay flat on my back i can see this big lump (baseball size) on the lower part of my stomic, its only painful when i touch it, i was just wondering what that might be? I've had had sex a couple times i did use a condom and made sure that all the semen was in the condom so i doubt i'm pregnant . I have no clue what is happening to me.

Mononessa is the hormonal equivalent of Sprintec (they both contain 0.250 mg of norgestimate and 0.035 mg of ethinyl estradiol. There may be some differences in the inactive/inert ingredients, but you shouldn't have a problem with taking Mononessa. If you should have problems, consult your doctor or pharmacist. I had been on Necon 1/35 for almost six years when I went to pick up my prescription back in January and was informed of two things. One, my birth control pills were now free (thanks to Obama's health care reform), and two, I was being switched from Necon 1/35 to Alyacen 1/35. Of course I was more than a little bothered by the fact that my pills had been switched without being notified--I had FINALLY found a pill that worked for me, after over 12 years of being on birth control pills. I asked a ton of questions, tore the box and the packets inside open to check the hormone dosage, etc. Bottom line was, whether I liked it or not, I had to deal with the change. *Edited to add* I should mention that I am now starting my second pack of this new Alyacen, and so far so good. I've not had any problems, and if I didn't know that my pills had been switched (minus the change in pill color), I would think I was still taking my old pills. With this health care reform, I imagine that there will be a lot of women finding their birth control pills switched over to cheaper generics. Answered by Celestine Berwick 4 months ago.

I am in the reverse situation, I was taking Mononessa and am being switched to Sprintec for my next dosage because I switched pharmacies. I'm nervous as hell but from what I understand, it is the exact same thing. I asked questions like crazy to the pharmacist just to calm my fears. Answered by Mindy Mckneely 4 months ago.
I can't say anything about these two types specifically, but I was on Ortho Tri-Cyclen Lo for 3 years and then got switched to Tri-Nessa due to the cost and I was very concerned about what the switch would do to my body. But I personally haven't experienced anything. Even though the Tri-Nessa is a higher dosage of pill than my last kind was, I didn't notice any difference except that my headaches are worse during my period on this pilll. But anyway, my whole point here is that you'll most likely be fine. I doubt you'll even notice a difference at all. :) Answered by Rheba Bayete 4 months ago.
