Why is Yasmin prescribed?
Drospirenone and Ethinyl estradiol (Yasmin) are oral contraceptives prescribed to prevent pregnancy from occurring. Oral contraceptives are a common method of birth control; however, they do not protect you from sexually transmitted diseases.
What does it do?
Yasmin contains two female sex hormones, Drospirenone and Ethinyl estradiol. Drospirenone is classified as progesterone while Ethinyl estradiol is classified as an estrogen. The mechanism of Drospirenone and Ethinyl estradiol to prevent pregnancy is through inhibiting the release of an egg from the ovary and by altering the uterine lining.
How should I take it?
Yasmin and its generic equivalents are currently available as 3/0.03mg tablets. Each tablet should be taken as a whole (do not split) by mouth with or without food.
The dosage strength depends on every patient’s condition and the doctor’s prescription. It is imperative that you do not self-medicate and only use this drug after consulting with your doctor or pharmacist to determine the best dosage and dosing schedule for the treatment of your condition.
What if I missed a dose?
The desired effects of prescribed medications will only be achieved if taken properly. As much as possible, strictly follow your doctor’s prescribed dosing schedule. However, if you miss a dose, take it immediately and adjust the time of your next dose depending on your doctor’s advice. Never take two doses at the same time just to make up for your missed dose.
What are the special precautions before taking Yasmin?
Before taking Drospirenone and Ethinyl estradiol, tell your doctor or pharmacist if you have any allergies to food or to the drug itself as it may contain several inactive ingredients, which can cause allergic reactions or problems.
Inform your doctor about your past and current medical history especially if you have or have had high blood pressure, diabetes, high cholesterol levels, heart disease, liver or kidney disease, migraines, gallbladder problems, thyroid problems, depression, or cancer.
Taking Drospirenone and Ethinyl estradiol can make you susceptible to the formation of blood clots, having a stroke, or heart attacks. Consult your doctor regarding this risk.
