FAQs

Q. Can Duogen-Dros be taken by a patient who smokes?

Ethinyl Estradiol+Drospirenone should not be taken by a person who smokes. Smoking increases the risk of serious side effects like death from heart attack, blood clots or stroke. The risk increases in patients who are obese or over 35 years of age and people who are heavy smokers. Inform your doctor if you smoke.

Q. Can Duogen-Dros cause bleeding or spotting between the regular menstrual periods?

Yes, Duogen-Dros can cause some unexpected bleeding or spotting, especially during the first three months. Do not stop taking Duogen-Dros because of this. This bleeding or spotting decreases with time. You may have unexpected bleeding if you do not take the pills regularly. Consult your doctor if the spotting continues for more than seven days or if the bleeding is heavy.

Q. What if I miss my regular menstrual periods while taking Duogen-Dros?

If you miss your menstrual periods while taking Duogen-Dros, you may be pregnant. Some women may miss periods or have light periods while taking Duogen-Dros even if they are not pregnant. Contact your doctor if you think you are pregnant or have missed one or two periods. This may happen if you do not take Duogen-Dros at the same time every day.

The use of Duogen-Dros should be avoided with drugs or herbal products that induce certain enzymes (ex, CYP3A4) in our body.
