    Unhappy Birth control-Tri Sprintec

    Can the first couple of months of Tri-sprintec make you crazy! Does tri-sprintec cause horrible mood swings when you begin it? I am on my second pack and I am crying alot, angry, just plain old mean!! I did better on Yaz (mentally) however it it too expensive and a bit scary on the possible side affects, plus the fact that I had virtually no period while on it.. In your experience does it just take a while for your system to get used too it?
    I am taking birth control more for horrible cramps,acne, clotting, aches pains, etc..... Never had any of these problems until after I had my child 4 years ago. .I am very bad about taking it at the same time every evening. I usually am a few hours ahead or behind. Can that affect the mood swings that much? I am 35 yrs old and this past year (on and off ) is the 1st time I have ever used Birth control. Please, could anyone shed some light? Thank you!

    Re: Birth control-Tri Sprintec

    I am a teenage girl and this is my first time taking birth control. my physician put me on tri sprintec because of the low cost, but i am wondering about the sideffects. I have read a bunch of articles and posts about it, and have gotten mixed messages. My first concern would be: is it as effective at preventing pregnancy as the name brand? and secondly i would like to know if it really does make acne that much worse. thanks so much!!!

    worried and confused

    I take it no problems like that. Maybe its stress or anxiety for you. Honestly all birth control will have side effects no matter which one you take. It helps acne not make it worse and keeps ovarian cyst from forming, yes its just as effective as the brand name. It can cause a little weight gain and breast tenderness or growth. But some other side effects are like nausea, headaches etc... But thats really all birth control.
