It's normal to experience different side effects when switching pills, but it isn't as common when you're just switching to a different generic. Trinessa and Tri-Sprintec have identical active ingredients, but the inactive ingredients (which don't have anything to do with the effectiveness of the pill) may differ slightly, and some woman claim that those differences do cause some side effects.

Anyway, the side effects should go away after a cycle or so, if they're even due to the Tri-Sprintec at all.
