How To Use
  • Take the first pill on day 1 of menstruation.
  • Take it with food or immediately after a meal to prevent stomach upset.
  • Jolivette should be taken daily at the same time each day.
  • Use a supplemental form of birth control during the first two months of taking Jolivette since it takes a while to be effective.

Side Effects
  • Jolivette may cause weight gain, depression, fatigue, acne, oily scalp, hair loss, decrease in breast size and may increase susceptibility to yeast infections.
  • If these effects persist or become intolerable, inform your doctor.
  • Notify your doctor if you develop any of the following effects while taking Jolivette: dizziness or fainting, sudden severe headache, changes in vision, numbness or tingling in the arms or legs, swelling of the hands or feet, chest pain, shortness of breath, pain in the lower legs with swelling/warmth or redness, symptoms of jaundice (dark urine, clay-colored stools, yellowing of the eyes or skin), changes in vaginal bleeding (e.g., spotting, breakthrough, prolonged, or lack of bleeding).
  • If you notice other effects not listed above, contact your doctor or pharmacist.

Precautions
  • Before you take Jolivette, tell your doctor your entire medical history, including family medical history, especially of: asthma, high blood pressure, kidney or liver disease, heart disease, history of jaundice (yellowing of skin or eyes), unusual weight gain or swelling during your menstrual cycle, strokes, blood clots, seizures, migraine headaches, breast cancer, high cholesterol or triglyceride levels, depression.
  • It may take a long time for you to become pregnant after you stop taking birth control pills, especially if you have never had a baby or if you had irregular, infrequent, or complete absence of menstrual periods before taking birth control pills.
  • This problem does not seem to be related to the duration of use of birth control pills.
  • Discuss this with your doctor.
  • Do not smoke cigarettes.
  • Birth-control pills slightly increase your risk of strokes, blood clots, high blood pressure, heart attacks, gallbladder disease, vision problems, and liver tumors.
  • Cigarette smoking (especially 15 or more cigarettes daily) and age (women older than 35 or 40 years of age) further increase the risk of stroke, blood clots, high blood pressure, and heart attacks.
  • Ask your pharmacist or doctor for a copy of the patient labeling which explains these risks in more detail.
  • Before having surgery, including dental surgery, tell the doctor that you take birth control pills.
  • Jolivette may increase skin sensitivity to the sun or cause a patchy darkening of the skin (melasma).
  • Sunlight may intensify this darkening.
  • Avoid prolonged sun exposure and do not use sunlamps.
  • Use sunscreen and wear protective clothing when exposed to the sun.
  • Norethindrone must not be used during pregnancy.
  • If you become pregnant or think you are pregnant, inform your doctor immediately.
  • Jolivette passes into breast milk.
  • It may have undesirable effect on a nursing infant (if you are not a well-nourished mother).
  • Consult your doctor before breast-feeding.
  • Oral contraceptives should be stopped at least three months before becoming pregnant.
  • Use another method of birth control during those three months.

Missed Dose
  • Use a back-up method of birth control for 2 days if you are more than 3 hours late taking Jolivette.
  • If you forget to take one dose, take the dose as soon as you remember, and take the next dose at your regular time.
  • Use a back- up method of birth control until your next menstrual period.
  • If you forget to take 2 doses, take 2 doses when you remember, and 2 the next day.
  • Then use a back-up method of birth control until your next period.
  • Ask your doctor or pharmacist for advice on a reliable back-up method of birth control as well as more missed dose details.

Drug Interactions
  • Tell your doctor of all prescription and nonprescription drugs you may use, especially: aminoglutethimide, certain seizure drugs (e.g., phenytoin, barbiturates, primidone, carbamazepine), rifamycins (e.g., rifampin), thyroid, nevirapine, theophylline, antibiotics such as penicillins and tetracyclines, griseofulvin, certain HIV protease inhibitors (e.g., amprenavir, nelfinavir, ritonavir), acitretin, troglitazone, modafinil, corticosteroids (e.g., prednisone).
  • This product can affect the results of certain lab tests.
  • Make sure laboratory personnel and your doctors know you use Jolivette.
  • Do not start or stop any medicine without doctor or pharmacist approval.
