An Introduction to Your Daysee Dosage
™ (levonorgestrel/ethinyl estradiol) is a prescription oral contraceptive
(birth control pill
). There is only one standard dose for this generic version of Seasonale®
. As always, do not adjust your dosage unless your healthcare provider specifically tells you to do so.
Starting at the beginning of the pack, take one tablet at the same time each day. Each pack will last for 13 weeks (91 days), and contains tablets in a blister card with three sections. Start at the first section and continue through the pack. After you finish one pack, immediately start a new one the next day. Do not let any days go by between packs without taking a pill. This may take a little planning, as you will need a new pack on hand.
The first 84 tablets contain the active ingredients. The last seven tablets do not contain any active ingredients. By taking these seven tablets, your body gets a break from the hormones, allowing you to have a period. You may experience breakthrough bleeding or spotting between periods. This is not your period; keep taking Daysee as usual.
When you take Daysee for the first time, start the pack on the first Sunday after your period starts. If your period happens to start on a Sunday, start the pack on the first day of your period. For the first seven days when you first start taking Daysee, it is necessary to use a backup method of contraception, such as condoms. From then on, take one tablet every day.
