No more waiting in line at the pharmacy or reminders to refill your prescription. It's safe, private, and easy. We work with plenty of insurance providers. If you don't have insurance coverage, Tri-Legest Fe is a generic so it may be a more affordable option.

  • What Precautions Should I Take Before Taking Tri-Legest Fe?

    Before taking Tri-Legest Fe, tell your doctor or our medical team if you have any known allergies. It's especially important to tell your doctor if you have a medical history of blood clots, high blood pressure, heart problems, severe headaches/migraines, cancer, or any other medical condition.

    Hormonal birth control may affect your blood sugar, so make sure to test your blood sugar regularly and tell your doctor if you have any symptoms of high blood sugar like increased urination or thirst.

  • Are There Any Known Side Effects of Tri-Legest Fe?

    Like any prescription medication, Tri-Legest Fe does have some known side effects. These include headaches, bloating, breast tenderness, vomiting, nausea, or fluid retention. Talk to your doctor or our medical experts if any of these symptoms persist or worsen.

    Some more serious side effects are rare, but possible. They include raising your blood pressure, severe mood changes, or blood clots. Seek medical help immediately if you experience severe symptoms, such as sudden dizziness or fainting, slurred speech, sudden shortness of breath, weakness on one side of the body, or vision problems. However, it's important to remember that these types of side effects are very rare.

  • Can I Take Tri-Legest Fe With Other Medications?

    Yes, but make sure to tell your doctor about any other medications you take in order to avoid interaction effects. Interactions with other products could cause Tri-Legest Fe to be less effective or cause other symptoms.

  • Does Tri-Legest Fe Cause Weight Gain?

    It's a common myth that hormonal birth control causes weight gain, but several studies have found no correlation. Bloating or breast tenderness may be mistaken for weight gain.

  • Does Tri-Legest Fe Treat Acne?

    Combination hormonally-based birth control pills, including Tri-Legest Fe, may help improve acne by changing the levels of acne-producing hormones in your body. Clearer skin is a nice side effect of Tri-Legest Fe!
