Ocella Dosage

General Information on Dosing With Ocella

Considerations for people using Ocella include the following:
  • Ocella comes in tablet form. It is taken by mouth once a day.
  • You can take Ocella with food or on an empty stomach. If the medication bothers your stomach, try taking it with food.
  • It is very important that you take Ocella every day, at the same time each day. Try to pick a time that will be easy to remember, such as at bedtime. If you have trouble remembering, please talk with your healthcare provider, as missing pills increases your risk of pregnancy.
  • Each pack of Ocella contains 28 pills. Be sure to take them in order. Once you finish a pack, start a new one right away. You will probably get your period during the last few days of the pack or, sometimes, during the first few days of the new pack.
  • 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 Ocella dosage, please talk to your doctor, nurse, or pharmacist.
