When and How to Use Lessina

General considerations for when and how to use the medication include the following:
  • Lessina comes in tablet form. It is taken by mouth once a day.
  • It is very important to take Lessina every day, at the same time each day. Try to pick a time that will be 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.
  • Each pack of Lessina contains 28 pills. Be sure to take them in order. Once you finish a pack, start a new pack right away. You will probably start your period during the last seven days of the pack.
  • You can take Lessina with food or on an empty stomach. If the drug bothers your stomach, try taking it with food.
  • 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 a week.
  • For the medication to work properly, it must be taken as prescribed.

Dosage Information

There is only one standard way to dose Lessina, regardless of your age, weight, or medical conditions. As always, do not adjust your dose unless your healthcare provider specifically instructs you to do so.
