Pimtrea

When and How to Use It

Some general considerations to keep in mind while taking this contraceptive include the following:
 
  • Pimtrea comes in the form of a tablet. It is taken by mouth once a day.
 
  • You can take this drug with food or on an empty stomach. If Pimtrea bothers your stomach, try taking it with food.
 
  • Each pack contains 28 pills. Be 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 Pimtrea 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 medication to work properly, it must be taken as prescribed.
 

Dosing Information

There is only one standard dose of Pimtrea, regardless of age, weight, or medical conditions. As with any medication, do not adjust your dosage unless your healthcare provider specifically tells you to do so.
