Im 22 years old and have been using a birth control pill called ortho tri-cyclen lo for about 4 years. Well, I'm a college student and have found that I can no longer afford the $50 a month to fill the prescription so I'm wondering if tri-sprintect would be good low cost pill to switch to. I have an appointment with my doctor to discuss this. Does anyone take this pill? Any opinions? Answered by Vinnie Fleschner 4 months ago.
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 Hannah Urmston 4 months ago.
Mircette v. Tri-Sprintec?
I have been taking mircette and have the option to swith to Tri-Sprintec, any suggestions?
Asked by Latrisha Mcgiboney 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.

Asked by Giuseppe Pollett 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 Gerda Panozzo 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.

Asked by Johnsie Slagel 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.

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? I get get much reviews on it because it's new. I just don't think it would be good to try something that would mess you up. So first, is this information right? And what would be the best choice for birth control? Answered by Elanor Schreckengost 4 months ago.
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 Jaqueline Prechtl 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. It hasn't happened once since, and I've been on it for 10 months! Answered by Delena Capels 4 months ago.

Is there any difference between tri-Sprintec and ortho cyclen? ?
and any bad side effects of tri-sprintec? also, why my period is so light, am i just spotting or what? i was on birth control/ Kariva) now for 4months.
Asked by Serita Besong 4 months ago.
Tri-sprintec is the generic name for ortho cyclen and is the exact same product. This medication can cause birth defects. Do not use if you are pregnant. Tell your doctor right away if you become pregnant, or if you miss two menstrual periods in a row. If you have recently had a baby, wait at least 4 weeks before taking birth control pills (6 weeks if you are breast-feeding). Do not use this medication if you have: a history of a stroke, blood clot, or circulation problems; a hormone-related cancer such as breast or uterine cancer; abnormal vaginal bleeding; liver disease or liver cancer; severe migraine headaches; or a history of jaundice caused by birth control pills. hope this helps..

Asked by Lanelle Geng 4 months ago.
I started Tri-Sprintec a little over a month ago. You have two options about when to start taking the pill. You can start the day that your period starts, which means you are immediately protected against pregnancy. You can also wait until the Sunday AFTER your period starts, which means you will have to use another back-up method of birth control until you have taken at least 7 active horomone pills. On my Tri-Sprintec tablet bar, the days are labeled Sunday throught Saturday, left through right. The packet should come with sticky labels to cover up the days if you start on a day other than Sunday. That should help you be clearer about which pill to take on which day. Just remember to take your pills left to right, every day, at the same time. Answered by Antione Leistiko 4 months ago.

Personal reviews of birth control pills aren't really useful. Every birth control pill available has a ton of "good" reviews as well as a ton of "bad" reviews...because each brand works totally different for everyone! What works well for you might cause someone else to have weird side effects and what works terribly for someone else might work great for you, because everyone's body reacts differently to different brands. You just need to experiment with different birth control pills to find one that works well with YOUR body. Any birth control pill does come with possible side effects, so it is possible that you will experience some with Tri-Sprintec. However, Tri-Sprintec is also very commonly prescribed, and it works well for a lot of people...so hopefully you will be one of them! Some people are very sensitive to birth control pills and need to try a few different types before they find one that works well for them. Other people feel fine on the first one they try, and can stay on that brand for years. You won't know how any pill will affect you personally until you try it. The good thing is that if it doesn't work well for you, there is no shortage of other brands to switch to. Try not to be too nervous, and give the pill a few weeks to work. Chances are, you will be fine. If you experience any side effects, just call the doctor or clinic that prescribed the pills for advice. As far as the weight loss goes...I'm 23 and at this point almost all of my friends are on various brands of birth control pills. I don't know one person who has gained weight due to the pills. You can keep an eye on your weight, but it doesn't seem to be a common side effect, so I wouldn't worry too much. :) Answered by Lauren Lagunas 4 months ago.
All birth control have side effects. Birth control makes you gain weight, give you head ache, makes you nauseous all that, BASICALLY it changes your whole hormonal system. I am just against it. I don't know why gyni..prescribed birth control for cramps at all. My sister was using some kind of oral contraceptive few years back for her cramps, the daamn thing messed up her periods, she would have mood swings, hot flashes, she gained too much weight. I gave her my medicine for cramps cause she just did not wanted to take any birth control for pain, after taking my medicine she never went back to pill. different ppl have different and less or more side effects. you can use other pain killer during your periods. Cramps are muscles aching. Naproxen works great for me. Talk to your doctor and have him/her give you any suggestions on Naproxen. It's a muscle relaxant. Answered by Gertrude Byram 4 months ago.

I used Tri-Sprintec for about 4 years and I NEVER had a reaction like you're having. I would consult your doctor that prescribed the medication as you could be having an adverse reaction to the medication. Everyone reacts differently to medication, and my advice to you is to try a different birth control pill. It could be that you just had your daughter and that it's causing problems but either way I would call your doctor ASAP. And to answer the chance of you being pregnant, if you have been taking the pills regularly and not misisng any chances are you will not get pregnant the pill is supposed to start working in the second week so you're most likely in the clear for the pregnancy although with all birth control methods nothing is 100% sure. I had sex with my husband with just the pill and him not pulling out and never got pregnant when on Tri-Sprintec. Answered by Romaine Cabiness 4 months ago.
Your not suppose to be on birth control that soon after having your baby, it makes it alot alot harder for your uterus to go back down to the normal size and it almost completely stops the healing process, or so my doctor told me. you are suppose to wait for your 6wks check up to make sure everything is ok before you start taking them cause they can really mess you up if your not. no it's not normal for you to be having those symptoms and i was on tri- sprintec both times i got pregnant with my two little ones and you have to take it for a month strait before it's effective.
