Storage Methods

Keep Brevicon tablets in their original package. The packaging is designed to help you remember to take the tablets each day and to take the tablets in the correct order. Keep the package at room temperature, away from moisture or heat.
Keep Brevicon and all other medications out of the reach of children.

What If I Miss a Dose?

Missing doses of Brevicon increases the risk of pregnancy. What you should do depends on how many tablets you have missed and where exactly you are in your cycle (see Brevicon Dosage). If you are not sure what to do, refer to the patient information that comes with each pack of Brevicon, or consult your healthcare provider.
