(Click Ortho-Cyclen Overdose for more information.)

Storage Methods

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

What If I Miss a Dose?

Missing doses of Sprintec 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. Refer to the patient information that comes with each pack of Sprintec or consult your healthcare provider if you are not sure what to do (see Sprintec Dosing for more information as well).

Who Makes It?

Sprintec is made by Barr Laboratories, Inc., a company that has been "bought out" by Teva Pharmaceuticals (see Generic Ortho-Cyclen for more information).

Strengths of Sprintec

Sprintec comes in one strength. The first 21 tablets in each pack contain 0.250 mg of norgestimate and 0.035 mg of ethinyl estradiol. The last seven tablets of the pack do not contain any active ingredients.
