Instructions for use

The total dose should not be exceeded without consulting a doctor or pharmacist.

Type of application?
Take the medicine with liquid (e.g. 1 glass of water).

Duration of application?
Ingestion cycle: 1 light pink active ingredient-containing tablet daily for 24 consecutive days, then 1 white placebo tablet daily for 4 consecutive days. You are also protected against pregnancy while taking the placebo tablets for 4 days. This cycle is repeated as long as hormonal treatment or contraception is desired.
In principle, the duration of use is not limited in time, the drug can therefore be used for a longer period of time.

Overdose?
Overdosing can cause nausea, vomiting and vaginal bleeding. If you suspect an overdose, contact a doctor immediately.

Forgot to take?
If a single dose is forgotten, a second dose should be taken within 12 hours. If this is not possible, take additional contraceptive measures, e.g. condoms, and ask your doctor or pharmacist.

The general rule is: Pay attention to a conscientious dosage, especially for babies, toddlers and the elderly. If in doubt, ask your doctor or pharmacist about any effects or precautionary measures.

A dosage prescribed by a doctor may differ from the information on the package insert. Since the doctor will tailor them individually, you should therefore use the medicine according to his instructions.
