Quartette Dosage

The recommended Quartette dosage is one tablet a day taken at the same time each day. When first starting this birth control pill, take the first tablet on the first Sunday after your period starts. As soon as you finish one pack, immediately start a new one the next day. To ensure the effectiveness of Quartette, try not to miss any pills.

An Introduction to Dosing With Quartette

There is only one standard dose of Quartette™ (levonorgestrel/ethinyl estradiol). As always, do not adjust your dosage unless your healthcare provider specifically tells you to do so.
 

What Is the Recommended Quartette Dose for Birth Control?

Starting at the beginning of the pack, take one tablet at the same time each day. Each pack will last for 91 days (13 weeks) in three trays. Start at the front tray and continue through the pack. After you finish one pack, immediately start a new one the next day.
 
The first 84 tablets contain both levonorgestrel and ethinyl estradiol. The last seven contain a low dose of ethinyl estradiol but no levonorgestrel. By taking these seven tablets, your body gets a break from the levonorgestrel, allowing you to have a period. You may experience breakthrough bleeding or spotting between periods. This is not your period; keep taking Quartette as usual.
 
When you take Quartette for the first time, start the pack on the first Sunday after your period starts. If your period happens to start on a Sunday, start the pack on the first day of your period. For the first seven days when you start Quartette, a backup method of contraception, such as condoms, is necessary.
