Dosage and Administration
Follow your doctor`s instructions for using Mercilon 28 (Ethinylestradiol/Desogestrel) to ensure the correct results from treatment. The medication should be taken once each day as scheduled. Your doctor may prescribe another regimen based on your health condition, symptoms, or responses to other treatments.

When taking your doses, swallow the tablets unaltered along with a full glass of water. They can be administered on an empty stomach, but a meal is recommended if you experience an upset stomach.

Attend regular doctor consultations to make sure the treatment is having the proper results. After observing your response to treatment, symptoms, and health condition, you may be instructed to adjust your dosage or frequency of administration until the best results occur. Follow these directions and ask your doctor or pharmacist any questions you have about the medicine to ensure the correct usage.
