birth control for cramps caused anxiety/depression??

Hi! I've had really bad cramps for as long as I can remember. They are absolutely awful- the pain is excruciating. It seemed to be getting worse with each period , so I went to my regular doctor and was prescribed Tri Lo Sprintec. After about 3 months, it's safe to say it's made my anxiety and depression go through the roof. Has anyone else experienced this? How have you taken care of your cramps without birth control?
