Frequently Asked Questions

Do you carry oral contraceptives like Yasmin?

Short Answer

We carry oral contraceptives, but that specific brand is a special order item.

Long Answer

If you need Yasmin, please contact us and we will make arrangements for you.

Yasmin (drospirenone [draw-SPEER-a-none] and ethinyl estradiol [ETH-in-il es-tra-DYE-ole]) is indicated for the prevention of pregnancy in women who elect to use an oral contraceptive. It might also be used to help regulate the menstrual cycle. You should be aware that while this medication has been approved as a form of birth control, it does not protect against HIV infection (AIDS) and other sexually transmitted diseases.

Do not use birth control pills if you are pregnant; some of these medications can cause birth defects in an unborn baby (FDA pregnancy category X).

If you are taking drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol, it is important that you talk to your doctor or pharmacist if:

  • you are taking Angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitors (Accupril, Aceon, Altace, Capoten, Lotensin, Mavik, Monopril, Prinivil, Univasc, Vasotec, and Zestril). [Potassium in the blood may be increased by drospirenone.]
  • you are taking Carbamazepine (Tegretol).
  • you are taking Phenobarbital (Barbita).
  • you are taking Phenytoin (Dilantin).
  • you are taking Rifampin (Rifadin). [These medicines may reduce the birth control effect of drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol and cause increased irregular menstrual bleeding.]
  • you are taking Cyclosporine (Neoral).
  • you are taking Theophylline (Elixophyllin). [Oral contraceptives may increase the effects of these medicines and increase the chance of problems occurring.]
  • you are taking Griseofulvin (Fulvicin). [May cause unplanned pregnancy; use additional birth control methods while taking griseofulvin.]
  • you smoke tobacco. [Smoking may decrease the effect of oral contraceptives and increase the chance of causing serious blood clot, vein, or heart problems.]
  • you have a risk or history of high blood pressure, angina, heart disease, high cholesterol or triglycerides.
  • you have a risk or history of stroke or blood clots.
  • you have a risk or history of liver or kidney disease.
  • you have a risk or history of asthma.
  • you have a risk or history of epilepsy.
  • you have a risk or history of migraines, depression.
  • you have a risk or history of diabetes.
  • you have a risk or history of gallbladder disease.
  • you have a risk or history of uterine fibroids.
  • you have had a hysterectomy (uterus removed).
