Can You Take Too Much Minastrin 24 Fe?

Minastrin™ 24 Fe (norethindrone/ethinyl estradiol) is an oral contraceptive (also known as a birth control pill or simply "the pill"). The effects of an overdose on this product may vary, depending on a number of factors, including the Minastrin 24 Fe dosage and whether it was taken with any other substances, medications, or street drugs. Usually, an overdose of Minastrin 24 Fe is not likely to cause life-threatening problems.

Overdose Symptoms

As with any other birth control pill, a Minastrin 24 Fe overdose may cause bothersome symptoms, such as nausea and vomiting. In females (even young girls), an overdose may cause vaginal bleeding. In cases when children inadvertently took large doses of birth control pills, no serious problems were reported.

Treatment for a Minastrin 24 Fe Overdose

It is not known how best to treat someone who takes too much Minastrin 24 Fe. Therefore, if treatment is necessary, it will involve supportive care, which consists of treating the symptoms that occur as a result of the overdose. In many cases, treatment may not be necessary, although it is still important to seek medical attention immediately to rule out any problems.
