Viorele Dosage

General Information on Taking Viorele

Some considerations to keep in mind while taking Viorele include the following:
  • Viorele comes in the form of a tablet. It is taken by mouth once a day.
  • You can take Viorele with food or on an empty stomach. If Viorele bothers your stomach, try taking it with food.
  • Each pack of Viorele contains 28 pills. Be sure to take them in order. Once you finish a pack, start a new pack right away the next day. You will probably get your period during the last seven days of the pack.
  • It is normal to experience breakthrough bleeding or spotting (between periods) while taking Viorele. Keep taking Viorele as normal.
  • It is very important to take Viorele every day, at the same time each day. Try to pick a time that is 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.
  • 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 dosage of Viorele, please talk to your healthcare provider, nurse, or pharmacist.
