Keep Microgestin tablets in their original package. The packaging is designed to help you remember to take the tablets each day. Keep the package at room temperature, away from moisture and heat.
Keep Microgestin and all other medications out of the reach of children.
Missing doses of Microgestin increases the risk of pregnancy. What you should do depends on how many tablets you have missed and where exactly you are in your cycle (see Microgestin Dosing). Refer to the patient information that comes with each pack of Microgestin, or consult your healthcare provider if you are not sure what to do.
