Tri Previfem Vs Tri Sprintec
My pharmacy switched me from tri-sprintec to tri-previfem this month. Why would they do that? Should I be concerned?
Because that is: The generic they made a deal with both pills are generic but you may or may not like the new pill as much since it may have different amounts of hormones, I always prescribe brand name pills for my pts, use generics for other meds, my #1 pill is loloestrin by law a brand name has to have 90% of the active drug and most have 98%, a generic only has to have 72% at the least which can cause problems!See 1 more doctor answer
Prescribed Tri-Sprintec, given Tri-Previfem. I'm nervous because side effects are supposedly worse with Tri-Previfem. Why? I'm concerned for anxiety.
They are: Nit too different. Most of the time it is a matter of trial and error. Unwanted pregnancy is worse
My cvs has a back order on my birthcontrol, tri-sprintec so they gave me tri-previfem for a month. Is this okay?
Yes: Tri-previfem and tri-sprintec are just different brands that contain the same medicine. You should be fine. Best wishes!
If you switch from tri previfem (norgestimate and ethinyl estradiol) to tri sprintec right after the plecebo week and start the first active pill day 4 of cycle are u still protected?
Yes.: As long as you start the new brand of pills at the usual time, and have had no lapse of birth control pills, you are still protected and do not need a back up birth control method.
I used tri sprintec for birth control, today my pharmacy switched me to tri previfem (norgestimate and ethinyl estradiol). I mostly use it for acne and to regulate my period. Is this going to affect it?
I've been getting off brand of tri cyclen. I was on tri estarylla for 6months now im on tri previfem is that ok?? I'm scared of the side affects.
That is ok: They have kind of same hormones ratio, you should be ok
I took my birth controls in the wrong order. I'm currently taking tri-previfem (multiphasic). I took a week 2 pill instead of a week 3. Am I protected?
Yes: As long as you took an "active pill" everyday, your contraceptive method is intact.
I notified on a medication interaction site it had a 'low risk' warning for my Elavil (amitriptyline) and tri-previfem. Will this lower the pills effectiveness?
No: The low incidence of interaction shouldn't reduce the effectiveness of either medication
Sure: It is ok to take this with vitamins
I am on otho tri-cyclen and my doctor has switched me to tri-previfem and told me it is the same thing. Is it?
I'm on tri-previfem 28 day. I have taken 4 inactive pills (sun-wed) & got period yesterday. Can I start a new pack to lighten/slow my period?
May not help: It's normal to start your period while you are on the inactive pills. I cannot guarantee that starting a new pack will lighten or slow your current bleeding cycle and thus I wouldn't necessarily recommend it as a habit as it just isn't a guarantee. If you wanted to avoid having your period in general you could skip the inactive pills every month altogether. You may have just light spotting.
No: But you are a victim of a fraud. If you must take a multivitamin you will derive exactly the same benefit [NONE] from a generic multivitamin at 1/10 the cost. I know I look stupid, but my nutrition comes from normal food. In fact there are thousands of nutrients in food never found in any pill. Don't be a sucker. Eat your vegetables.
I'm taking a birth control called Tri-previfem and it makes me mad & sad all the time. Is there a type of birth control that can fix my moods?
In amounts found...: ...naturally in food, fenugreek is safe, but in amounts found in supplements, it may be unsafe whether you're on BCP's or not. I don't recommend it. Pueraria has phytoestrogens, plant chemical with estrogen-like effects. It might be helpful for women w/ estrogen deficiency. But for you, already on an estrogen-containing contraceptive, I don't recommend it. Hope this helps. Dr. Anne
I am taking 250 mg of ciprofloxacin for a UTI 2x a day. I'm on tri-previfem. Mixed answers about impact of cipro on bcp. Will this affect it?
It may.: Actually than can be true. So speak to your OB
On second pill in b/c pack, take tri-previfem and been prescribed to amoxicillin. Was only on the medicine for 1day when I had sex. Pulled out, pregnant?
Is tri-previfem the same as ortho tri-cyclen? My doctor has switched me to the generic kind and I am scared.
What to do if I'm in the second week of my birth control (tri previfem). If I stop taking the birth control now, will my period come this week?
Maybe: It might, but to avoid irregular bleeding, I would suggest you stop at the end of the pack.
