Mono-Linyah Dosage

Women who are taking Mono-Linyah to prevent pregnancy should take the pill consistently every day and at the same time each day. This is the standard dosage of Mono-Linyah for every woman who takes this birth control pill. It is also important to not miss doses, as you may need to use a backup method of contraception to help prevent an unintentional pregnancy.

An Introduction to Your Dosage of Mono-Linyah

Mono-Linyah™ (norgestimate/ethinyl estradiol) is a birth control pill that is a generic version of Ortho-Cyclen®. There is only one standard dose of Mono-Linyah. As always, do not adjust your dosage unless your healthcare provider specifically tells you to do so. Although Mono-Linyah is quite effective when taken as directed, taking it incorrectly increases the risk of unintentional pregnancy.
 

Mono-Linyah Dosing Guidelines

It is important to have a basic understanding of how a package of Mono-Linyah pills is set up. The first 21 tablets of each pack contain the active ingredients. The last seven tablets do not contain any active ingredients. During this last week, your body gets a little break from the hormones, allowing you to have a period.
 
You may experience breakthrough bleeding or spotting between periods. This is not an actual period; keep taking Mono-Linyah as usual.
 
Starting at the beginning of the pack, take one tablet at the same time each day. Each pack will last for 28 days (four weeks). After you finish one pack, start a new one the next day. Do not let any days go by between packs; this may take a little planning, as you will need to have a new pack on hand.
