What should I do if birth control has me bleeding more

Patient : I am taking Tri-Previfem and I have been bleeding for about almost 2 weeks now. I have had mood swings out of this world, more emotional, my sex drive has gone down, and when I started taking the birth control my period got even heavier, not to mention my I was already bleeding heavy before the pill. Before the pill I would usually stay on for about 7 sometimes 7 1/2 days and stop bleeding. I don't think Tri-previfem is the pill for me...what should I do
Symptoms:  Headaches, crampy mood swings, too emotional lately, constant bleeding...mostly the blood is a dark brown color and sometimes its red.
