    Questions on Tri-sprintec

    Im just about to start Tri-sprintec and i have a few questions.
    well this is my first time starting on birth control.
    Will Tri-sprintec make me gain weight?
    Can i use Tri-sprintec with my food-suppressors?
    Will it help clear my face?
    and whats with the discharge, will i have to wear pantiliners or somthing?
    im really confused my doctor really wouldnt go deep into the product with me.
    PLEASE HELP ME!

    Lizzy

    ALL birth control has the potential to cause weight gain, and Tri-Sprintec is no exception. However, most professionals say that if you eat a balanced diet and exercise regularly, weight gain should be minimal at most.

    What do you mean by "food suppressors?" If you're talking about diet supplements, there's no way to know for sure if it's safe. Supplements aren't regulated by the FDA, and certainly aren't evaluated for possible drug interactions.

    Tri-Sprintec is indicated for ance treatment, so it's likely it will help clear your complection.

    There is no extreme discharge when using birth control. It's similar to the discharge that you have weekly while not using the period. It shouldn't require a pantyliner. The only time you should require a pad or tampon is during your period.

    My niece (she's 15) is on it, and my sister-in-law says it's helped her acne alot. She does have some scars on her face from picking at it, though. Regarding the weight gain, not everyone gains weight on the pill. It's sort of an individual thing. If you're taking diet pills with caffeine in them, you may find yourself bouncing off the walls. Birth control pills can elevate blood levels of caffeine, thereby increasing the side effects (jitteriness, nervousness, sleeplessness, headaches, etc.) You might not be affected by it, everyone is different. But I'm on Ovcon-35, and I if have chocolate around the time I take my pill (10:30 pm) I get hyper and I can't sleep.
