Drospirenone applications

Post  kokoblue on Wed Apr 21, 2010 2:17 am

Drospirenone and Ethinyl Estradiol is a type of birth control pill that combines two hormones: the lowest dosage of ethinyl estradiol commonly used today and drospirenone, a different type of progestin. Drospirenone is a compound closely resembling progesterone, but has properties that are closely related to spironolactone, a diuretic drug used to treat high blood pressure. Drospirenone and Ethinyl Estradiol was approved by the Food and Drug Administration on May 11, 2001.
The combination of drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol is used as contraception to prevent pregnancy. It is also used to treat moderate acne in women who are at least 14 years old and have started having menstrual periods, and who wish to use birth control pills to prevent pregnancy.
This medication is also used to treat the symptoms of premenstrual dysphoric disorder (PMDD), such as anxiety, depression, irritability, trouble concentrating, lack of energy, sleep or appetite changes, breast tenderness, joint or muscle pain, headache, and weight gain.
Drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol may also be used for other purposes not listed in this medication guide.
