Ortho Tri-Cyclen Lo Overdose

If you take too much Ortho Tri-Cyclen Lo, overdose symptoms may include nausea, vomiting, and vaginal bleeding. However, an overdose of the oral contraceptive is not likely to be dangerous or cause serious problems. Treatment for an Ortho Tri-Cyclen Lo overdose, if necessary, will likely consist of treating any symptoms that occur as a result of the overdose.

Ortho Tri-Cyclen Lo Overdose: An Overview

Ortho Tri-Cyclen Lo® (norgestimate/ethinyl estradiol) is an oral contraceptive (commonly known as a birth control pill or "the pill"). The effects of an Ortho Tri-Cyclen Lo overdose may vary, depending on a number of factors, including the Ortho Tri-Cyclen Lo dosage and whether it was taken with any other substances, medications, or street drugs.
 
Even though an overdose is unlikely to be dangerous, seek medical attention immediately if you happen to overdose on Ortho Tri-Cyclen Lo.
 

Symptoms of an Ortho Tri-Cyclen Lo Overdose

An overdose of Ortho Tri-Cyclen Lo (or any birth control pill) may cause bothersome symptoms, such as nausea and vomiting. In females (even young girls), an overdose may also cause vaginal bleeding. In cases of children inadvertently taking large doses of birth control pills, no serious problems have been reported.
 

Treatment for an Ortho Tri-Cyclen Lo Overdose

It is not known how to best treat an Ortho Tri-Cyclen Lo overdose. Therefore, treatment (if necessary) will likely 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 prompt medical attention is still necessary to rule out any problems.
