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?

In brief: They are the SAME

If acne is controlled to your satisfaction, continue either one.
If not , consider Yaz (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol) (or generic equivalent). Addition of spironolactone will usually abolish any remaining acne.
