Trinessa vs. Tri-Sprintec
Chemically, is there a difference between Trinessa tablets and Tri-Sprintec? I have been told by the Pharmacy that they are the same just produced by different manufacturers. The Tri-Sprintec tablets are bigger----could the chemical compounds be different? Some people say they have more nausea with the Tri-Sprintec---in their mind??? My daughter was taking Trinessa and now the Pharmacy only carries Tri-Sprintec. We had trouble getting her adjusted to Trinessa, will I have to go thru another adjustment period?

Re: Trinessa vs. Tri-Sprintec
Triness and Trisprintec are not the same. Chemically they are close to the same but not extactly. I was on Trinessa for over two years and switched to trisprintec and had a horrible time. I am switching back to trinessa due to daily nausea, mood swings, along with numerous other problems. You should expect an adjustment time of atleast 3 months. I would suggest finding another pharmacy that carries trinessa to avoid the process of switching over.

Did you experience acne when switching from trinessa to trisprintec?

Re: Trinessa vs. Tri-Sprintec
My doctor mistakenly refilled my BCPs with Tri-Sprintec instead of the Trinessa that I have been on for numerous years. My face has broken out terribly (I'm on my 3rd pack of Tri-Sprintec) so I'm going back to Trinessa. I have noticed that my mood swings have subsided (my PMS mood swings, that is) but I think the benefits of Trinessa outweigh those of of Tri-Sprintec.
