Tilia Fe Dosage

If you are taking Tilia Fe, it's important to know that there is only one standard dosage -- one tablet once a day. If you miss any pills, it can increase your chances of getting pregnant. Make sure you know exactly what to do if you miss a dose, as you may temporarily need to use a backup method of contraception, such as condoms.

An Introduction to Your Tilia Fe Dosage

There is only one standard dose of Tilia™ Fe (norethindrone/ethinyl estradiol). As always, do not adjust your dosage unless your healthcare provider specifically tells you to do so. Although birth control pills are extremely effective when taken correctly, their effectiveness decreases significantly if you take them incorrectly.
 
(Tilia Fe is equivalent to Estrostep® Fe birth control pills. The information in this article also applies to Estrostep Fe.)
 

Dosing Basics

Starting at the beginning of the pack, take one tablet daily at the same time each day. Each pack will last for 28 days (4 weeks). After you finish one pack, immediately start a new one the next day. Do not let any days pass between packs, even if you are still having your period (this may take a little planning, as you will need a new pack on hand).
 
The first 21 tablets contain the active ingredients. The last seven tablets do not contain any active ingredients. During this last week, your body gets a little break from the hormones, allowing you to have a period.
 
Tilia Fe is a "triphasic" birth control pill, which means that there are three different phases of pills, plus the last phase of the inactive pills. These pills contain different amounts of hormones and must be taken in the correct order. This is why it is important to keep the pills in the original packaging.
