Falmina Dosage

When used to prevent pregnancy, the standard Falmina dosage is one tablet taken once a day, at the same time each day. This prescription birth control pill comes in a pack that contains 28 pills. Make sure to take the pills consistently, as missing doses increases your risk of pregnancy. If you forget to take your pill, you may need to use a backup method of contraception.

An Introduction to Your Dosage of Falmina

There is only one standard dose of Falmina™ (levonorgestrel/ethinyl estradiol). As always, do not adjust your dosage unless your healthcare provider specifically tells you to do so. Although Falmina is quite effective when taken as directed, taking it incorrectly increases the risk of unintentional pregnancy.
 

Falmina Dosing for Birth Control

Falmina comes in one strength, containing 0.1 mg of levonorgestrel and 0.02 mg of ethinyl estradiol per active tablet (the first 21 orange tablets). The last seven tablets do not contain any active ingredients. By taking these seven tablets, your body gets a break from the hormones, allowing you to have a period. You may experience breakthrough bleeding or spotting between periods. This is not an actual period; keep taking Falmina as usual.
 
Starting at the beginning of the pack, take one tablet at the same time each day. Each pack will last for 28 days (four weeks). After you finish one pack, immediately start a new one the next day. Do not let any days pass between packs; this may take a little planning, as you will need a new pack on hand.
