Crisanta LS is a combination of Drospirenone and Ethinyl Estradiol which belongs to the group of medicines called Hormonal Contraceptive Agents. It is used as a contraceptive to prevent pregnancy. It can also be used to treat acne (in females aged above 14 years) or premenstrual dysphoric disorder (a severe form of premenstrual syndrome) in women who wish to take oral contraceptives to prevent pregnancy.

Both drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol are synthetic female sex hormones (estrogen and progesterone). They reduce the chances of pregnancy by suppressing ovulation (release of a mature egg from ovary) and by altering the uterine environment which makes it unfavourable for a fertilized egg to implant and grow. They also alter the thickness of cervical mucus which makes it difficult for the sperms to travel inside the uterus.

They can also reduce the symptoms of premenstrual dysphoric disorder by regulating the falling levels of sex hormones following ovulation or just before menstruation. Additionally, they can decrease the production of male sex hormones (testosterone) in the body. This helps in reducing hormonal acne by reducing excess oil secretion (sebum) in the skin.

Before taking CRISANTA LS inform your doctor if you have any family history of breast cancer or are suffering from depression. You must also inform your doctor if you have diabetes, high blood cholesterol or migraine headaches.

Consult your doctor before taking CRISANTA LS if you have any liver, kidney or heart problems or are suffering from blood clots. It is strictly not recommended for use in pregnant or breastfeeding women and in women (aged above 35 years) who have the habit of smoking.

While taking CRISANTA LS, your doctor may want to regularly monitor your health condition to avoid the risk of unwanted side effects. The most common side effects of CRISANTA LS are unusual spotting or bleeding, nauseabreast tenderness and headache. Consult your doctor if any of these side effect worsens.
