Strengths of Sprintec

Sprintec® (norgestimate/ethinyl estradiol) is a prescription birth control pill that is approved for use in women of reproductive age. There is only one standard dose of Sprintec. The product comes in packs of 28 pills, and one pill is taken at the same time each day, either with or without food.
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. During this last week, your body gets a little break from the hormones, allowing you to have a period.
