Zenchent FeTM (norethindrone/ethinyl estradiol) is a unique birth control pill in that it is available in chewable form. This oral contraceptive, which is available only by prescription, is ideal for women who have difficulty swallowing tablets. One tablet is taken once a day, preferably at the same time each day, as missing doses increases the risk for pregnancy.
Before taking Zenchent Fe, information on warnings and safety precautions should be reviewed with your healthcare provider. For example, there are potential drug interactions with this birth control pill to be aware of, and your healthcare provider needs to know if you have certain medical conditions, such as high blood pressure, diabetes, or liver problems, before deciding to prescribe it.
