  • Vomiting
  • Vaginal bleeding (in females).
     
(Click Activella Overdose for more information.)
 

How Should Activella Be Stored?

Activella should be stored at room temperature, away from moisture and heat. The tablets should be stored in their original dispenser packaging. Keep this and all other medications out of the reach of children.
 

What If I Miss a Dose?

If you do not take your Activella as scheduled, take your missed dose as soon as you remember. If it is almost time for your next dose, skip the missed dose and continue with your regular schedule. Do not take a double dose.
