I started taking the generic form of Ortho Tri Cyclen (Tri-Sprintec) three months ago. My face has broken out terribly, all over. It's getting worse, and I get at least two to three new pimples a day. The old ones barely heal, I have blemishes all over. I was on Kariva before this for about a year and I didn't have acne nearly as bad, just slightly once a month. I switched because of a few side effects, and don't really want to go back. The doctor also thought this would help my skin, because the one I was on previously had androgens. I'm not sure what I should do...should I stay on it hoping my skin clears....or just change?
Go to a dermatologist and find out.
No insurance, not really an option. Just figured there were other people out there who went through the same thing.
Sorry, and I'm sorry your doctor doesn't seem to know.
