Crisanta LS is an oral contraceptive also known as a "birth control pill" or "the Pill" which is taken to prevent pregnancy. The active ingredients present in Crisanta LS are Drospirenone and Ethinylestradiol.
Crisanta LS is used as contraception to prevent pregnancy and 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. It 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.
A patient should begin to take Crisanta LS on the first day (Day 1) of her menstrual period. During the first cycle of Crisanta LS use, the patient should be told to take one tablet daily, beginning on day 1 of her menstrual cycle (the first day of menstruation is day one). She should take one tablet daily for 21 consecutive days, followed by 7 pill-free days. It is recommended that Crisanta LS be taken at the same time each day, preferably after the evening meal or at bedtime.
