The prescribed dosage of CamreseLo is the same for all women -- one pill taken once a day. Each package contains 91 pills, which means a woman will only get a period once every three months. It is important to take your pill 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 CamreseLoThere is only one standard recommended dose for Camrese®Lo (levonorgestrel/ethinyl estradiol). As always, do not adjust your dosage unless your healthcare provider specifically tells you to do so.
CamreseLo Dosing GuidelinesCamreseLo comes in one strength, containing 0.1 mg of levonorgestrel and 0.02 mg of ethinyl estradiol per active tablet (the first 84 orange tablets). The last seven (yellow) tablets contain 0.01 mg of ethinyl estradiol per tablet, but no levonorgestrel. By taking these seven tablets, your body gets a break from the levonorgestrel, allowing you to have a period. You may experience breakthrough bleeding or spotting between periods. This is not an actual period; keep taking CamreseLo as usual.
Starting at the beginning of the pack, take one tablet at the same time each day. Each pack will last for 91 days (13 weeks) in three trays. Start at the front tray and continue through the pack; after you finish one pack, immediately start a new one. When you take CamreseLo for the first time, start the pack on the first Sunday after your period starts. If your period happens to start on a Sunday, start the pack on the first day of your period. For the first seven days when you begin taking CamreseLo, a backup method of contraception (such as condoms) is necessary.
