Lybrel Dosage

General Information on Lybrel Dosage

Some considerations for people using Lybrel include the following:
  • Lybrel comes in the form of a tablet that is taken by mouth once a day.
  • You can take Lybrel with food or on an empty stomach. If Lybrel bothers your stomach, try taking it with food.
  • Each pack of Lybrel contains 28 pills. Be sure to take them in order. Once you finish a pack, start a new pack right away.
  • It is normal to experience breakthrough bleeding or spotting while taking Lybrel. Keep taking Lybrel as normal.
  • It is very important to take Lybrel every day, at the same time each day. Try to pick a time that is easy to remember (such as at bedtime or breakfast). If you have trouble remembering, please talk with your healthcare provider, as missing pills increases your risk of pregnancy.
  • Make sure you know exactly what to do if you miss any pills. In some circumstances, you may need to use a backup method of contraception (such as condoms) for seven days.
  • For the medication to work properly, it must be taken as prescribed.
  • If you are unsure about anything related to your Lybrel dosage, please talk to your doctor, nurse, or pharmacist.
