Taking Marlissa Safely

When and How to Take It

Some general considerations to keep in mind during treatment with Marlissa include the following:
  • Marlissa comes in tablet form. It is taken by mouth once a day.
  • Each pack of Marlissa contains 28 pills. Make sure to take them in order. Once you finish a pack, start a new one the next day. You will probably start your period during the last seven days of the pack.
  • It is very important to take the pill 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.
  • You can take Marlissa with food or on an empty stomach. If it seems to bother your stomach, try taking it with food.
  • 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 a week.
  • For the contraceptive to work properly, it must be taken as prescribed.
