Lo Minastrin Fe Dosage

If your healthcare provider prescribes Lo Minastrin Fe, the dosage is the same for everyone -- one pill taken once daily. Make sure to take your pill every day, at the same time every day, as missing doses increases your risk of pregnancy. There are 28 tablets in each pack. Once you finish a pack, start a new one the next day.

 

An Introduction to Dosing With Lo Minastrin Fe

There is only one standard dose of Lo Minastrin™ Fe (norethindrone/ethinyl estradiol). As always, do not adjust your dosage unless your healthcare provider specifically tells you to do so.
 

Lo Minastrin Fe Dosage for Birth Control

Starting at the beginning of the pack, take one tablet at the same time each day. Each pack will last for four weeks (28 days). 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.
 
The first 24 tablets contain both of the active ingredients (norethindrone and ethinyl estradiol). The next two tablets contain ethinyl estradiol only. The last two tablets do not contain any hormones, but do contain a small amount of iron. With these last two tablets, your body gets a little break from the hormones, allowing you to have a period. The first 24 tablets are chewable; the last 4 are not.
 
When you take Lo Minastrin Fe for the first time, start it on the first day of your period. If you start this medication on the first day of your period, you do not need to use any backup method of contraception. If you start this birth control pill on any other day (which is not officially recommended), you need to use a backup method of contraception, such as condoms, for the first week.
