I was switched from Ortho Tri-Cyclen Lo to regular OTC in December because the Lo was horrible for my skin. However, due to insurance, I was given a generic form called TriNessa 28 by my Rite Aid Pharmacy, which I used in January. My body seemed to tolerate it well, but I still get acne! :rolleyes:

Now that I am back at school, I have to use a CVS pharmacy to get all of my prescriptions filled. This month, they gave me a totally different generic form of regualr OTC called Tri-Sprintec. How is my acne supposed to go away if each pharmacy uses different generics?? :eek:

Any experiences on either of these pills--especially using them for acne?? Thanks girls! :)

The generics are chemically identical, so it doesn't matter what generic you get. They're all identical to one another, and identical to the brand. Using different generics will have no baring on your skin condition.
