Nordette-28 Birth Control Pills

One of the many birth control pills available today is Nordette® (levonorgestrel/ethinyl estradiol). This prescription drug is also available in the following generic forms:
 
  • Altavera® (made by Sandoz)
  • Levora® (made by Watson Pharmaceuticals, Inc.)
  • Portia® (made by Barr Pharmaceuticals, Inc.).
 
Nordette comes in a pack that contains 28 pills. The standard dose of this birth control pill is one pill a day, taken at the same time each day. The first 21 pills in the pack contain the active ingredients, and the last 7 contain no active ingredients (you will probably start your period during the last seven days of the pack).
 
Following the dosing guidelines is very important -- not doing so increases your risk of unintended pregnancy. If you are unsure what to do if you miss any pills, talk to your healthcare provider.
