Alyacen Dosage

There is only one standard Alyacen dosage -- one pill taken once a day. There are two different strengths of Alyacen available, and each package contains 28 pills. Regardless of the strength you use, make sure to take your pills consistently, at the same time every day. If you miss any doses, you may need to use a backup method of contraception.

An Introduction to Your Dosage of Alyacen

There is only one standard dosage of Alyacen™ (norethindrone and ethinyl estradiol). As always, do not adjust your dosage unless your healthcare provider specifically tells you to do so. Although the contraceptive is effective when taken as directed, taking it incorrectly significantly increases the risk of pregnancy. If at any time you are unsure of how to take Alyacen, do not hesitate to call your healthcare provider or pharmacist for further instructions.
