ALESSE DRUG INFORMATION, ABOUT ALESSE
GENERIC NAME: Aviane
COMMON BRAND NAME: ALESSE®
WHAT IS ALESSE?
Alesse birth control pills (oral contraceptives) are used to prevent pregnancy. Estrogen and progestin are female sex hormones. Estrogen and progestin together work to prevent ovulation (the release of eggs from the ovaries) and to change the cervical mucus and the lining of the uterus.
Oral contraceptives are an effective method of birth control. However, they will not prevent the spread of AIDS nor and other sexually transmitted diseases.
HOW TO USE ALESSE BIRTH CONTROL PILLS
Oral contraceptives come in packets of 21 or 28 tablets. The tablets are taken by mouth once a day. Take oral contraceptives with food or milk to avoid an upset stomach. Take the tablet at the same time every day (e.g., at breakfast or at bedtime). This will help you remember to take the medication regularly. Missing a dose will increase your risk of becoming pregnant.
Use an additional method of birth control for the first 7 days until you have correctly taken Alesse for that period of time.
If your packet has 21-tablets, take one tablet every day for 21 days then take none for seven days. Start a new packet.
If your packet has 28-tablets, take one tablet daily for 28 days. The last 7 tablets will be another color. These tablets are not birth-control pills. They contain an inactive ingredient or iron (ferrous fumarate). Take one tablet every day for 28 days in the order specified in your packet. Start another packet the day after taking your 28th tablet.
Take the oral contraceptive exactly as directed. Carefully follow the directions on your prescription label concerning when to take your first tablet (on day-one or day-five of your menstrual period or on the first Sunday on or after bleeding begins). Do not take more or less or take more often than prescribed by your physician. Do not stop taking Alesse without talking to your physician.
If you have recently had a baby, wait until 4 weeks after giving birth to begin taking Alesse.
Before taking Alesse, ask your doctor or pharmacist for a copy of the manufacturer's information and read it carefully.
Alesse may be prescribed for other uses. Ask your physician or pharmacist for more information.
