Can you answer these questions (Ask a question):

  • Are an increase in appetite & tiredness side effects of the birth control tri-sprintec?
    In the past I have taken the birth control Ortho Tri-Cyclen Lo and have never had any problems. I just switched to the generic brand, Tri-sprintec. I have now officially been taking Tri-Sprintec for 2 months. I recently started to notice that my appetite has increased and I've been eating A LOT more than normal; I have definitely started to gain weight. I also have been a lot more tired than usual.
  • I'm 19 and take mono linyah birth control pill doctors just found 3 blood clots in my right lung on 6-28-14 i was wondering if the birth control caused it?
    We'll I'm 19 years old and Saturday morning my alarm clock went off at 4 because my boyfriend had to wake up for work we'll as he was getting ready I started having chest pain and I told him. He ended up leaving for work and it got so bad I called his granny and told her I thought I was having a heart attack. So they came and got me and I went to the er it took them forever to find out what was wrong but it just hurt so bad.
  • Does tri-cyclen have salicylates in it?
    I think I have a salicylate intolerance and I'm not sure if this birth control is safe for me to take, someone help!!
  • My daughter is on her second pack of tri-cyclen pills. last month & again last night had her in the er for a severe panic attack. can it be pill related? (3 answers)
    My daughter is on her second pack of these. She is 17, healthy and no history of Panic of any sort. She is active with cheerleading and never had any problems. During the first pack she had a panic attack during the middle week. She had to go to the ER because she couldn't breath and chest pain and numbness. They said Panic attack. The obgyn said go ahead and try for another month and see what happens. Well, last night while at cheer camp, 1 hr from home. I get a call from a nurse that paramedics are there and I can hear her crying in the back ground and in a panic. They didn't think it could be from these pills either. I get there and find that another girl on team started these in January and she has had 3 episodes of the same sort, but the doctors say it shouldn't be from these. I just think it is strange she had never done anything like this until she started these. Has anyone heard of anyone else having problems with these pills? By the way I took them home. Not taking them anymore.

  • From this study (6 months ago):

  • I was on a combination of Depakote ER, Birth control, and Prednisone and gained 40lbs in a matter of two months. I went from being a normal weight of 125 at 5'3" to 165 plus. The symptom that was the worst was that my size C breasts went from that to a DD and now a DDD. It is very uncomfortable and I have back problems so that does not help.
    I found info at one time that said the birth control tricks your body into thinking it is pregnant and then the Depakote ER expands your breasts in a reaction of the two meds. I need to know if one of these or two or all of these meds induced my larger breasts. Thank you!
