WARNING - MULTIPLE PACK PRESCRIPTION - PLEASE READ CAREFULLY
This item contains more than one pack of a prescription product. Before this can be dispensed the doctor has to give approval. The prescription must be written for the total quantity or the prescription must be endorsed by your doctor "Regulation 24" otherwise we will be unable to dispense the increased amount. If you proceed with the order without approval, we will only send out one pack at the single pack price and refund the difference. Eg If your prescription is written out for 30 Tablets with 5 repeats and it does not have “Regulation 24 “ written on the script, the ONLY quantity we can dispense is 30 at one time. Further dispensing of this product could only occur after an appropriate length of time - usually 21 days but depends on dosage. In this example if you would like to obtain 180 Tablets then the doctor must endorse the prescription “Regulation 24” or the quantity must be written out for 180 and not 30. NB Conditions apply on the writing of a Regulation 24 prescription. Ask your doctor or pharmacist for details.
We can no longer accept signed authority forms from your doctor as permission to dispense more than one pack. Please contact our pharmacist for more information.
If you order this item as Private, NO PBS stickers will be issued. Once any prescription order has been sent the product cannot be returned for a refund even if your doctor changes your medication or you have an adverse reaction.

How Marvelon 28 works
Marvelon 28 is used for 28-day cycles. During this time a small amount of female sex hormones is taken with the large (active)
tablets. These hormones are intended to prevent the monthly release of an egg from the ovaries. If an egg is not released
pregnancy will not occur.
The small (inactive) tablets are added to the pack in order to simplify and ensure regular tablet-taking. Using Marvelon 28 you take
one tablet per day even during your menstrual period. While you are taking the small Marvelon 28 table 'regular monthly period'
occurs. However, this period may be lighter and shorter than usual.
How effective is Marvelon 28
Marvelon 28 is one of the most reliable methods of contraception if taken correctly.
To make Marvelon 28 as effective as it can be, remember:
To take it at about the same time every day (See the section What to do if you forget to take a tablet).
To use another contraceptive method as well if you miss a large tablet have an upset stomach, or are taking medicines for
instance antibiotics which may interfere with the way the Pill works. (See the section What to do if you have an upset stomach,
and the section What to do if have to take other medicines).
