General Information on Taking Marlissa

General Information on Taking Marlissa

Some considerations to keep in mind while taking Marlissa include the following:
 
  • Marlissa comes in tablet form. It is taken by mouth once a day.
 
  • You can take Marlissa with food or on an empty stomach. If it seems to bother your stomach, try taking it with food.
 
  • Each pack of Marlissa contains 28 pills. Make sure to take them in order. Once you finish a pack, start a new pack the next day. You will probably get your period during the last seven days of the pack.
 
  • It is normal to experience breakthrough bleeding or spotting between periods while taking this birth control pill. Keep taking Marlissa as normal.
 
  • It is very important to take Marlissa every day, at the same time each day. Try to pick a time that is easy to remember, such as at bedtime or breakfast. If you have trouble remembering, please 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.
 
  • If you are unsure about anything related to your dosage of Marlissa, please talk to your healthcare provider or pharmacist.
