Lo Minastrin Fe

When and How to Use It

Some general considerations to keep in mind while taking this contraceptive include the following:
 
  • Lo Minastrin Fe comes in the form of a chewable tablet. Chew and swallow one tablet once a day. Follow each dose with a full glass of water.
 
  • Please note that only the first 24 tablets (the blue ones) are chewable. The rest should be swallowed whole.
 
  • You can take Lo Minastrin Fe with food or on an empty stomach. If the drug seems to bother your stomach, try taking it with food.
 
  • Each pack of Lo Minastrin Fe contains 28 pills. Be sure to take them in order. Once you finish a pack, start a new one right away the next day, even if your period has not started yet.
 
  • It is very important to take Lo Minastrin Fe every day, at the same time each day. Try to pick a time that will be easy to remember, such as at bedtime or breakfast. If you have trouble remembering, 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 contraceptive to work properly, it must be taken as prescribed.
 

Dosing Information

There is only one standard way to dose Lo Minastrin Fe, regardless of your age, weight, or medical conditions. As always, do not adjust your dosage unless your healthcare provider specifically tells you to do so.
