Tilia Fe Dosage and Condition
Tilia Fe comes in a blister pack with four rows of pills, the first three rows contain the active hormone, and the last row does not. The last row will be a different color. The sugar pills are there simply to keep you in the habit of taking the pill every day at the same time. In a pack of Tilia Fe, the last row of pills will also contain iron. Talk to your doctor about the differences between the types of Tilia Fe and which is best for you.
Before starting Tilia Fel, talk to your doctor about the best day to begin taking Tilia Fe. For most women, it is best to start taking the pills on the first day their period begins. Tilia Fe contains a set of stickers to label the days of the week. Choose the correct sticker and apply it above the top row of pills (for example, if you start taking Tilia Fe on a Thursday, choose the sticker that begins on Thursday and ends on Wednesday.)
It is very important that you take Tilia Fe at the same time every day. Keep the information included in the packaging for instructions on what to do if you miss a dose.
After finishing a pack of Tilia Fe, immediately begin the next pack without skipping a day. Oral contraceptives only work if they are taken continuously and at the same time each day. If you miss a pill, or if you experience vomiting or diarrhea while taking the pill, be sure to use a backup method of contraception.
If you feel nauseous after taking Tilia Fe, take the pill with food or milk. Some women find that the best way to avoid nausea is to take Tilia Fe just before bed.
Always tell your doctor about every medicine, vitamin, a supplement that you are using so they can check for interactions.

Smoking cigarettes while taking the pill can increase the chance of serious side effects such as heart attack, blood clots, and stroke. This risk is higher for women over 35.
