Brand New Yasmin Generic, Syeda
0

2 posts in this topic

Ok, guys. There is a new company producing generic Yasmin, called Syeda. I got my prescription filled and there it was. I thought I would contact the company and find out if it was gluten-free and post it here, but apparently this is easier said than done. I emailed them and recieved an email saying that they are only willing to provide gluten content information verbally because that's what their legal department is insisting upon. There's also a form-disclaimer at the bottom using vaguely threatening wording discouraging me from disclosing information contained in the email to anyone else. I tried calling them several times and had trouble getting through, and I finally left a message so that they could call me back. Someone called me back a day or two later right around noon and left a message, but I've been playing phone tag ever since. The whole thing seems really shady, and I'm thinking I might switch to another generic brand at my next refill, just because these people leave a bad taste in my mouth. If the company were to tell me that the product is gluten-free and I then got sick from it, I would have no way to prove that they lied.

Can anyone suggest another generic yasmin alternative?

Oddly enough, I had the exact thing happen to me two days ago. I went to the drugstore to renew my prescription and got home and there was SYEDA. It's generic for Yasmin but I'm quite leary as well.

I've been on Ocella for about 2 years now and it's been great. The pharmacy couldn't tell me why they switched and if they'd switch back.

I'm going to see if I can find Ocella at another drugstore because I "think" I'm okay right now but I'm paranoid about this new generic drug.

Why change it if it's working just fine, right? :huh:

    • I do not think anyone was discussing " formed chicken" here.  Obviously, that is a different food than plain fresh chicken.
    • Dermatitis Herpetiformis  can manifest itself in lesions anywhere, not just elbows and knees.  I have it and although gluten free, I still have severe itching and little bumps that itch.  I don't have the lesions any more, but itching can drive a person mad.  the bumps can be on buttocks, shoulders, etc.  Dapsone is the standard treatment, if you are not allergic.  I also use topical prescription creams.  I take 2 Zyrtec a day and benedryl at night.  Benedril spray helps with temporary relief.  Also am on hydroxyzine and doxepin.  Sometimes steroids like prednisone help, but can ruin ones blood sugar counts.  I use Grandma's Baking Soda soap.  Straw may certainly be a factor.  I must be coming in contact with a trigger of some kind even though I'm very careful about my diet.  Change your dermatologist and get a specialist in DH.  I went for years with all kinds of stomach and bowel issues and was 69 years old before being correctly diagnosed.  Don't let anyone tell you it's your imagination!
    • I can not help you except to offer some emotional support.  You are not crazy!  You can get glutened on a farm.  Here is a study: http://www.nejm.org/doi/full/10.1056/NEJMc063112#t=article This topic has come up before: Hugs!      
    • I know I got glutened after handling some straw last year helping out decorating at the farmers market then going to eat something without washing my hands. I later learned it was wheat straw, some of them still had the heads on them and everything. Gave that area wide walk around after that, I did not have much issues with inhalation with it. But if your there with a thrasher running, down wind during the harvest.......I imagine it might be hell if your super sensitive. If you get skin reactions that easily from it I guess taking a vacation during harvest? Try staying indoors, dust mask, long sleeves and pants hope for the best.......I am just throwing some ideas out there. Maybe someone can help a bit more.
    • Hi i haven't been diagnosed yet. Bloodwork was negative (on gluten free diet) and I'm awaiting skin biopsy results  I have DH on the front of my thighs. The dermatologist says DH only happens on knees and elbows therefore I don't have it. It's itchy as hell, blisters, purple scans as It heals, migrates around but always in that spot on both legs. It takes 5 days after exposure to gluten for it to show up and it can last for a month. I throw up 24 hours after exposure, GI symptoms 36 hours after that last for about a week. I also will have a panic attack somewhere in that time.  I've been gluten free since December. Rash went away after a week of no gluten but came back after a few months (I ate a rice Crispie square)  My problem is this. I live in a farming community. I just filled my dogs kennel with straw not even THINKING about gluten. This was last week. All symptoms happened in order and now the DH is back. How the hell am I going to survive? I can stop using it on my property but what if it's in the air during Harvest time? I thought I had a mental handle on this but I'm devastated and terrified. My husband doubts it's possible the straw Glutened me but I know it did. What if this summer the air literally kills me? Has anyone dealt with this? I feel like I'm going insane, I'm so obsessed with this and now I'm itchy and sick too 😥
