    Are There Alternative Names For The Brand And Generic Cerazette?


    The brand Cerazette comes from India and is manufactured by Schering-Plough. The generic form of Cerazette is Desogestrel which is a sex hormone, called progestogen and is available from United Kingdom manufactured by a different manufacturer. It is also known as progestagen-only-pill (POP), or a mini-pill.

    What Dosages And Forms Is Cerazette Available In?


    Cerazette is available in the dosage form of 75 mcg tablets. One blister pack of Cerazette contains 28 white round tablets. The generic form of Cerazette (Desogestrel) is also available in the dosage form of 75 mcg in the packaging of 84 tablets.

    What Is Cerazette Used For?


    Cerazette is a birth control pill and is used to prevent pregnancy. It contains a small amount of female sex hormone the progestogen desogestrel. For this reason, this medication is known as a progestogen-only-pill (POP) or a mini-pill. As opposed to the combined pill, the mini-pill does not contain an oestrogen hormone next to the progestogen. This medication works by preventing the sperm cells from entering the uterus (womb) but does not always prevent the egg from ripening (which is the action of combined pills). Cerazette is different from other mini-pills in having a dose that in most cases is high enough to prevent egg cell from ripening. As a result, Cerazette has high contraceptive efficacy. In contrast to the combined pill, Cerazette can be used by women who do not tolerate oestrogens and by women who are breastfeeding. A disadvantage is that vaginal bleeding may occur at irregular intervals during the use of Cerazette. You may also not have any bleeding at all.

    What Are The Possible Side Effects Of Cerazette?


    Some of the common side effects of Cerazette include altered mood, decreased sex drive, headache, nausea, acne, breast pain, irregular or no menstruation, increased body weight. Other side effects may include infection of the vagina, difficulty in wearing contact lenses, painful menstruation, vomiting, hair loss, ovarian cyst, tiredness, and rashes. Some serious side effects include decreased bone mass, breast cancer, and thrombosis. These are not all the possible side effects of Cerazette. In case of any unexpected effect, contact your healthcare professional right away.

    Drug interactions


    You should always tell your health care professional about any medications that you have been taking or are going to take including prescription and non-prescription drugs, vitamins and herbal supplements. A number of medicines can affect the way Cerazette works. Especially tell your doctor if you take:

    • Anti-epileptic medications such as phenytoin, carbamazepine

    • Anti-tuberculosis medications such as rifampicin, rifabutin

    • Anti-HIV medications such as nevirapine

    If you are taking medicines or herbal products that might make Cerazette less effective, a barrier contraceptive method should also be used. Since the effect of another medicine on Cerazette may last up to 28 days after stopping the medicine, it is necessary to use the additional barrier contraceptive for that long.
