Basic Information On Yaz
Yaz is a contraceptive medication used to prevent pregnancy. It inhibits ovulation. It thickens the cervical mucus, thus making it impenetrable to the sperm. It alters the uterine lining making it difficult for the sperm to reach the uterus, and harder for the fertilized egg to implant itself in the uterine lining. The Yaz drug is also used to treat premenstrual dysphoric disorder PMDD, a disorder which causes depression, irritability, joint or muscle pain, sleeping problems, breast tenderness, anxiety, weight gain, besides other emotional disturbances. It also cures moderate acne in adolescent girls above 14 years of age. It is 98% effective in preventing pregnancy if taken strictly as directed. It does not protect against sexually transmitted disease like HIV/AIDS.
Precautions / Side Effects Of Yaz
The active chemical ingredients in Yaz are Drospirenone and Ethinyl Estradiol. You should not take this medication if you are allergic to Drospirenone or. Ethinyl Estradiol. It can cause side effects like loss of scalp hair, changes in menstrual cycle, swelling or tenderness, vaginal discharge or itching, vision problems, and skin problems like freckles or darkening. Before taking brand or generic Yaz, you should inform your doctor if you have high blood pressure, high cholesterol, diabetes, heart disease or gall bladder disorders.
Drospirenone and Ethinyl Estradiol should not be taken by pregnant or nursing women. This drug belongs to category X. It can harm the fetus. The hormones present in this medication are secreted in breast milk, and it can also decrease breast milk production. Brand or generic Yaz can increase potassium levels in the blood which can be further aggravated if you suffer from liver or kidney disease. You must tell your doctor about any such conditions before beginning treatment with Yaz.
The recommended dose for Yaz is one pink tablet daily taken for 24 days. It is started on the first day of the menstrual cycle or the first Sunday after menses, and taken for 24 days continuously. This is followed by 4 inert white tablets. To achieve maximum efficacy, it should be taken at the same time every day. Withdrawal bleeding is expected to occur within 3 days after taking the last pink tablet. In most cases, it is harmless; however, you should contact your doctor if bleeding is persistent and prolonged. If you miss a dose, it should be taken as soon as you remember it.

What is a "Generic" medication/drug?
Generic drugs are medications that have the comparable medicinal ingredients as the original brand name drug, but which are generally cheaper in price. Nearly 1 in 3 drugs dispensed are "generic". They undergo comparative testing to ensure that they are the same as their "brand" counterparts in:
- Active Ingredient (e.g. "Pravastatin" is the active ingredient in brand name Pravachol)
- Dosage (e.g. 10 mg of the active ingredient)
- Safety (e.g. same or similar side effects, drug interactions)
- Performance (e.g. 10 mg of a "generic" can be substituted for 10 mg of the "brand" and have the same therapeutic result)
- Intended use (e.g. both "generic" and "brand" would be prescribed for the same conditions)
What this means is that "generic" medications can be used as a substitute of their brand equivalents with comparable therapeutic results. There are a few exceptions (examples are outlined at the end of this page) and as always you should consult your physician before switching from a brand name medications to a generic or vice versa.
What differences are there between generic and brand?
While generics and brand equivalent drugs contain comparable active ingredients, they may be different in the following ways:
- Appearance (e.g. the scoring or markings)
The color, shape and size of the medication come from the fillers that are added to the active ingredients to make the drug. These fillers that are added to the drug have no medical use and do not to change the effectiveness of the final product. A generic drug must contain comparable active ingredients and must be comparable in strength and dosage to the original brand name equivalent. Generic drugs can be more cost effective than purchasing the brand name.
Why do generics cost less than the brand name equivalents?
When a new drug is "invented", the company that discovered it has a patent on it that gives them the exclusive production rights for this medication. Once the patent expires in a country, other companies can bring the product to market under their own name. This patent prevents other companies from copying the drug during that time so they can earn back their Research and Development costs through being the exclusive supplier of the product. After the patent expires however, other companies can develop a "generic" version of the product. These versions generally are offered at much lower prices because the companies do not have the same development costs as the original company who developed the medication.
The main thing to realize here though is that the two products are therapeutically comparable. They may look different, and be called something different, but they are required to be have the same active ingredient.
How are Generic drugs tested to ensure quality and efficacy?
The two most generally accepted methods to prove the safety of a generic version of a drug are to either repeat most of the chemistry, animal and human studies originally done, or to show that the drug performs comparably with the original brand name drug. This second option is called a "comparative bioavailability" study. During this type of study, volunteers are given the original drug, and then separately later the generic drug. The rates at which the drug is delivered to the patient (into their blood stream or otherwise absorbed) are measured to ensure they are the same. Because the same active ingredient is used the major concern is just that it delivers the common chemical(s) at the same rate so that they have the same effect. Please note that the methods that the manufacturers use may vary from country to country.
