Question Orthocyclen or Orthotricyclen?

I've been on and off Orthocyclen for a few years and this last time I got off and back on, I started breaking out pretty badly. My derm. suggested switching to Ortho tricyclen, but I fear the shifts in hormones each week will just further upset my acne. What do you think? Any suggestions would be great!

Well Im kindof negative on OTC drugs right now. I used trycyclene once upon a time and it did nothing for me. Sorry I cant be of more help but I havnt been on medications for many months now and I must say I feel quite a bit better and my face is looking a bit better too.

Good luck with whatever you do!
