Quartette Overdose

If a woman takes too much Quartette (levonorgestrel/ethinyl estradiol), it may cause nausea, vomiting, and vaginal bleeding. However, no serious problems were reported in cases where children accidentally took large doses of Quartette. Overdose treatment, if necessary, will likely involve supportive care, which consists of treating any symptoms that occur as a result of the overdose.
