Ortho Tri Cyclin

Were you looking for information about Ortho Tri-Cyclen? Ortho Tri Cyclin is a common misspelling of Ortho Tri-Cyclen.
Ortho Tri-Cyclen® is a prescription birth control pill that is also approved for the treatment of acne. It is a triphasic birth control pill, which means that there are three different "phases" of pills in each pack, with different amounts of progesterone. The product is available in both brand-name and generic form.
It's very important to take this medicine every day and 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. Most people tolerate the pills well, but potential side effects can include breast tenderness, headaches, and nausea or vomiting.
