Always take this medicine exactly as your doctor has told you. Check with your doctor or pharmacist if you are not sure.
Each strip of Cerelle contains 28 tablets. Arrows and the days of the week are printed on the front side of the strip, which help you take your pill correctly. Take your daily tablet at about the same time each day. Swallow each tablet whole with water.
Every time you start a new strip of Cerelle take a tablet from the top row. Don’t start with just any tablet. For example, if you start on a Wednesday, you should take the tablet from the top row marked “Wed”.
You should continue to take one tablet a day, until the strip is empty, always following the direction indicated by the arrows. By looking at the back of the strip of tablets you can easily check if you have already taken your tablet on a particular day.
You may have some bleeding during the use of Cerelle (see possible side effects), but you must continue to take your tablet as normal. When a strip is empty, you must start with a new pack of Cerelle on the next day – without interruption and without waiting for a bleeding.
