Apri Dosing

General Information on Apri Dosing

Some considerations for people using Apri include the following:
  • Apri comes in the form of a tablet that is taken by mouth once a day.
  • You can take Apri with food or on an empty stomach. If Apri bothers your stomach, try taking it with food.
  • Each pack of Apri contains 28 pills. Be sure to take them in order. Once you finish a pack, start a new pack right away. You will probably get your period during the last seven days of the pack.
  • It is normal to experience breakthrough bleeding or spotting (between periods) while taking Apri. Keep taking Apri as normal.
  • It is very important to take Apri every day, at the same time each day. Try to pick a time that is easy to remember (such as at bedtime or breakfast). If you have trouble remembering, please talk with your healthcare provider, as missing pills increases your risk of pregnancy.
  • Make sure you know exactly what to do if you miss any pills. In some circumstances, you may need to use a backup method of contraception (such as condoms) for seven days.
  • For the medication to work properly, it must be taken as prescribed.
  • If you are unsure about anything related to your Apri dosage, please talk to your doctor, nurse, or pharmacist.
