Enpresse Dosing

To ensure the effectiveness of Enpresse, dosing instructions must be followed exactly as prescribed. You can start Enpresse either on the first day of your period or the first Sunday after your period starts. Take one tablet daily, and immediately start a new pack as soon as you finish your current pack. Make sure to take your Enpresse dose at the same time each day.

Enpresse Dosing: An Introduction

Enpresse® (levonorgestrel/ethinyl estradiol) is a generic version of Triphasil®. There is only one standard dose of Enpresse. As always, do not adjust your Enpresse dose unless your healthcare provider specifically instructs you to do so. Although birth control pills are extremely effective when taken correctly, their effectiveness decreases significantly if you take them incorrectly.

Enpresse Dosing Basics

Starting at the beginning of the pack, take one tablet daily at the same time each day. Each pack will last for 28 days (four weeks). After you finish one pack, immediately start a new one the next day. Do not wait any days between packs (this may take a little planning, since you will need a new pack on hand). The first 21 tablets contain the active ingredients. The last seven tablets contain no active ingredients. During this last week, your body gets a little break from the hormones, allowing you to have a period.
Enpresse is a "triphasic" birth control pill, which means that there are three different phases of pills (plus the last phase of the inactive pills). These pills contain different amounts of hormones and must be taken in the correct order. This is why it is important to keep the pills in the original packaging.
