This medication is prescribed as an oral contraceptive, it is intended to prevent pregnancy. It comprises a blend of two active ingredients: drospirenone and estradiol. Drospirenone falls under the category of progestins, while estradiol is classified as an estrogen.

Uses and Dosage

Take this medication orally as instructed by your doctor, with or without food, typically once daily. Choose a convenient time each day, preferably 24 hours apart, and maintain consistency in taking your pill.

Consuming this medication after your evening meal or at bedtime might reduce stomach upset and nausea.

Follow the package instructions to locate the first tablet, commence with the first tablet in the pack, and consume them sequentially. Do not skip any doses, as missing pills, starting a new pack late, or taking your pill at a different time than usual could increase the likelihood of pregnancy.

Vomiting or diarrhea may interfere with the effectiveness of your birth control pills. In such cases, you might need to use an additional birth control method, such as condoms or spermicide.

Your pill pack contains 21 pills with active medication (hormones) and may include 7 reminder pills (without hormones) at the end of the pack. Take one active pill daily for 21 consecutive days. If your pack contains 28 tablets, take a reminder pill daily for 7 days after consuming the last active pill unless otherwise directed by your doctor. If your pack contains 21 tablets, abstain from taking any tablets for 7 days unless instructed otherwise by your doctor. You typically expect your period within 3 days after consuming the last active tablet in the cycle. After finishing the last reminder pill or going 7 days without an active tablet, commence a new pack the following day, regardless of whether your period has started. If you do not experience your period, consult your doctor.

If this is your first time using this medication and you are not transitioning from another form of hormonal birth control (e.g., patch, other birth control pills), commence with the first tablet in the pack on the first Sunday following the onset of your menstrual period or on the first day of your period. If your period commences on a Sunday, begin taking this medication that day. During the initial cycle of use only, employ a backup non-hormonal birth control method (e.g., condoms, spermicide) for the first 7 days to prevent pregnancy until the medication becomes effective. If you begin on the first day of your period, no backup birth control is necessary during the first week.

Consult your doctor or pharmacist for guidance on switching from other forms of hormonal birth control to this product.
