Taking sprintec for acne - should I skip the placebo"s

Recommended Posts

I stopped taking bcp's 6 months ago and started breaking out really bad, I'm back on for the 1st month and wondering if I should skip the white sugar pills since they probably have no affect on your skin and just start back on the regular strength ones from the next package - just so i can try and keep the hormones at a good level. Anyone know if this is a good idea or should i just go with the flow?

Thanks in advance!

I've been told that it's not a good idea to skip the placebo pills in tri-phasic pills such as tri-sprintec. If you use a monophasic pill (where there is a constant level of hormones), skipping placebos is fine.
