Beyaz Dosage

Each pack of Beyaz contains 28 pills (24 active and 4 inactive). The daily dosage of Beyaz is one pill, taken at the same time each day. Missing pills can increase your risk of pregnancy, so talk to your healthcare provider if you are having trouble remembering to take them. This product can be taken with or without food.

An Introduction to Dosing With Beyaz

There is only one standard dose of Beyaz™ (drospirenone/ethinyl estradiol/levomefolate calcium). As always, do not adjust your dosage unless your healthcare provider specifically tells you to do so.

Beyaz Dosage for Birth Control, Acne, or Premenstrual Dysphoric Disorder

Starting at the beginning of the pack, take one tablet at the same time each day. Each pack will last for 28 days (4 weeks). After you finish one pack, immediately start a new one.
The first 24 tablets (which are pink) contain the active ingredients. The last four (the light orange tablets) contain no hormones. By taking these tablets, your body gets a break from the hormones, allowing you to have a period.
When you take Beyaz for the first time, you can start it either on the first day of your period or on the first Sunday after your period starts.
If you start Beyaz on the first day of your period (a "day 1 start"), you do not need any backup contraception. If you choose a "Sunday start," you need to use a backup method of contraception (such as condoms) for the first week.
If the first day of your period happens to be on a Sunday, treat this as a "day 1 start" (no backup needed). If you switch from another type of birth control pill, start taking Beyaz on the day you would normally start a new pack of birth control pills (no backup necessary).
