(Click Kelnor Overdose for more information.)

How Should It Be Stored?

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

What If I Miss a Dose?

Missing doses of Kelnor 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 Kelnor Dosage). If you are not sure what to do, refer to the patient information that comes with each pack of Kelnor, or consult your healthcare provider.
