Product details

Syeda is a combination hormone-based birth control. By tricking your body into thinking that it’s pregnant, it helps to prevent pregnancy. However, it also has other positive side effects, including treating acne, preventing ovarian cysts, and treating PMDD. Not bad for one pill!

Our team at Nurx can prescribe Syeda at special request, or can offer the generic equivalent Drospirenone-Ethinyl Estradiol 3/.03 for as low as $0 with insurance or as little as $20 without insurance.

  • How Does It Work?

Talk to your doctor or our team of medical experts here at Nurx™ if you have any questions about how to take Syeda.

  • Is Syeda Easily Available?

    In a word? Yes! Syeda is only available by prescription, but here at Nurx™, we make it our mission to provide safe, affordable, hassle-free access to birth control prescriptions. Just go online and consult our team of experts to find out whether Syeda or another prescription is right for you. Your medication will be delivered to your door so you can skip the bother of calling your pharmacy for a refill or waiting in line.

    We also work hard to make prescriptions affordable for everyone. We work with a number of health insurance providers and we're adding more to our list. However, even if you don't have health insurance coverage, we can still work with you to find an affordable option. You may have heard of Yasmin — Syeda is a generic version of Yasmin and may, therefore, be a more affordable option.

  • What Precautions Should I Take Before Starting Syeda?

    As with any prescription medication, talk to your doctor or one of our medical experts before you begin taking Syeda. Diabetics should seek medical attention if they experience increased thirst or more frequent urination, and they check their blood sugar regularly.

    Some medical conditions, like a history of depression, high cholesterol, severe headaches, kidney or liver problems, heart disease, or blood clots could raise red flags. Your doctor can also help you understand whether you're at high risk for an allergic reaction, which might cause hives, rashes, itching, trouble breathing, or swelling of the tongue, throat, or lips.

  • Are There Any Known Side Effects of Syeda?

    Like any other hormonal birth control, Syeda has a chance of side effects. The most common ones include swollen feet or ankles, elevated blood pressure, spotting, irregular periods, headaches, nausea, breast tenderness, or vomiting.

    More severe side effects can include blood clots, heart disease, migraines, unusual sweating, lumps in the breast, severe stomach pain, mood changes, yellowed eyes or skin, or symptoms of stroke, like fainting, weakness on one side of the body, dizziness, or slurred speech. However, it's important to remember that these kinds of severe side effects are rare!

  • Can I Take Syeda With Other Medications?

    Yes, but it's important to tell your doctor or our experts about any other medication that you take, including meds that contain hormones. Other products, including different types of drugs or herbal supplements, could interact with Syeda and cause negative reactions or make Syeda less effective.

    Medications that could interfere with Syeda include drugs like ACE inhibitors or ibuprofen that raise potassium levels, as well as cancer medication, aromatase inhibitors, or drugs used to treat chronic hepatitis C.

  • Does Syeda Treat PMDD?

    Yes! Syeda has been approved to treat PMDD, or premenstrual dysphoric disorder.

  • Does Syeda Cause Weight Gain?

    It is a common myth that hormonal birth control causes weight gain, but recent studies have found that this is a myth.
