This prescription item requires a pre approved authority from the Government in order to get this item at the quoted price. Authority prescriptions need to be applied for by the doctor writing the script and can include reasons such as increased quantities due to dosage, increased repeats, use for a pre determined specified use, or the nature of the medication itself requiring specialist interaction. In the event that an authority is not granted on the script, the price will revert to the private price quoted for that item


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.

General Information


(Wyeth Ayerst)

What is in this leaflet
This leaflet answers some common questions about Trifeme.

It does not contain all the available information.

It does not take the place of talking to your doctor or pharmacist.

All medicines have risks and benefits. Your doctor has weighed the risks of you taking Trifeme against the benefits this medicine
is expected to have for you.

If you have any concerns about taking this medicine, ask your doctor or pharmacist.

Keep this leaflet with the medicine.

You may need to read it again.
What Trifeme is used for
Trifeme is an oral contraceptive. Oral contraceptives are commonly known as 'the Pill'. Trifeme pills contain two active ingredients
(levonorgestrel and ethinyloestradiol), which can stop you from becoming pregnant if taken correctly. They are similar to hormones
your body normally produces.

Levonorgestrel is a progestogen. It changes the mucus in the vaginal passages, making it difficult for sperm to reach the egg.
Levonorgestrel may also change the lining of the womb, making it less likely for a fertilised egg to implant.

Ethinyloestradiol is an estrogen, similar to the estrogen produced in your body in varying amounts during each monthly cycle.
Taking a small amount of ethinyloestradiol every day prevents eggs from growing and being released ready for pregnancy.

Your doctor may have prescribed Trifeme for another reason. In some women, irregular, very painful or heavy periods may lead to
iron loss and anaemia. Trifeme can normalise these periods. There are other benefits from long-term use.

Ask your doctor if you have any questions about why Trifeme has been prescribed for you.

This medicine is available only with a doctor's prescription.

Trifeme is not addictive.

Trifeme will not protect you from HIV-AIDS or any other sexually transmitted diseases.
