I switched from Tri Sprintec (which I had been on for years) to Ortho Tri Cyclen about 5 months ago. Actually, the pharmacy switched me...I didn't really have a say in the matter. They told me that my insurance would cover the OTC, but that the generic comes with a monthly co-pay. I'm wondering if the BC swap could have anything to do with the current state of my skin. I know that OTC is supposed to HELP skin, but I'm just at a loss as to why I continue to break out. I hadn't experienced breakouts like this in years! Has anyone had a similar experience after switching to a different birth control? I've been blaming my skin on the fact that I tried to switch to a different skin care line back in October/November, but I'm trying my hardest to follow the regimen to a T these days and continue to break out. Two new pimples on Saturday, two new pimples on Sunday, another new pimple today. Perpetual flakes and scabs. So frustrating and disheartening!
