Were you looking for information about Alesse? Allesse is a common misspelling of Alesse.
Alesse® is a birth control pill that is available only by prescription. Since the drug contains both an estrogen and a progestin, it is known as a "combination" contraceptive. Alesse comes in tablet form and is taken once a day. While most women tolerate the drug well, side effects can include nausea, breast tenderness, and headaches.
