That’s not a “walmart” brand, it’s just a generic. I took it for years and years with no problems! Walmart doesn’t manufacture it’s own drugs, and all those who do are completely beholden to the FDA’s standards and inspections! I work in drug development, if that helps ease your worry :-).

I’m on microgestin it cost me $20 with insurance and $25 without 🙂  Planned parenthood is an option too.

You are going to find those complaints with virtually all birth controls. Meds work well for some people and have no side effects, while others can have horrible side effects on the same meds. The only thing you can do is try them out. That being said, my friend was on Sprintec for years and had no issue. The only reason she switched was because she wanted Nuvaring once she became insured. No one goes out of their way to write a good reveiew online for a med, especially a generic. Just try it! 🙂

When my insurance didn’t cover birth control (it does now, woohoo!), I took the generic called Apri 28-day – it was $30/month. Still alot, but cheaper than most brand names. I like it, too – still on it, even though cost isn’t an issue right now.

i’ve been on the generic of ortho novum 7/7/7 and went without insurance for about a year. during that time i signed up for rite aid’s prescription plan and got it for $20/ month, which wasn’t too bad!

@Jamcnair:  I have been on sprintec for the last few months becuase of the price $10 a month.

I think it’s fine for me, the only thing I dont like is I have more discharge now then I did with Ortho.

I was on Sprintec my first year on bc and it was fine. My  boobs got a little bigger, I think. I paid $9/mo. THEN I was eligible for Michigan’s Plan First program and get my bc (Ortho Tri-Cyclen) for free.
