I have been searching for a class action suit against Tri Lo-Sprintec. I am having many of the same symptoms I see other have posted. Lowered sex drive, anxiety, mood swings, breast enlargement, facial skin spots (permanent) along with others changes.
I am most concerned, that I have never had any female problems. No missed cycles, regular menstrual symptoms and easily went on Ortho Tri Lo, having no spotting, I stayed as regular since first starting my period. I was very happy with the birth control.
When my pharmacist, due to insurance switched me to Sprintec, I didn't think twice, I have had many other generics prescriptions over the years, never having a problem.
NOT the case with Tri Lo Sprintec !!
Within 60 days after switching, I had severe cramping pains mid cycle. Within the next 12 hours I had heavy vaginal bleeding. I immediately got in to see my doctor and she did a pelvic then and there. She was concerned that my cervix was closed. My bleeding was not just a simple hormonal mess-up. I had a negative pregnancy test and The Dr. felt I may have had a ruptured ovarian cyst. I was sent to ultrasound and they found what looked to be the remnants of a ovarian cyst rupture or ovary tear, but hard to tell after the fact. I bled heavily for a week.
I continue to this day, 7 months after this started to have lower pelvic pain, that the doctors are not sure about. Last month I was hospitalized in severe pain, another ultrasound, I now have 2 cyst on the left side and a fibroid on the uterus. This has all happened in a 6 month span!
Three months ago was when I was informed Tri Lo Sprintec was pulled by the FDA. I believe there is more issues with this than just patent names.
Many serious side effects, some that are permanent. My Dr. is ordering a endoscope of the Left ovary now. I am coming up at the end of my child bearing years, now having serious concerns if health wise I will be able to.
Has anyone else had sudden appearance of ovarian cyst or fibroids show up that they never had before?
If anyone knows of a link for class action lawsuit against this drug company, please inform me.
