Treatment Instructions for Ogen
- The medication comes in tablet form. It is taken by mouth once a day.
- You can take it with or without food. If the drug bothers your stomach, try taking it with food (some women find estrogens to be irritating to the stomach).
- The medicine is usually taken cyclically, with periodic breaks every once in a while, to allow for period-like bleeding. Your healthcare provider will help you decide exactly how to take Ogen.
- It does not matter what time of day you take it, although it is best to take the medication at the same time each day.
- The tablets can be broken in half, if necessary, to achieve the right dose.
- For the medication to work properly, it must be taken as prescribed.
The dosage your healthcare provider recommends will vary, depending on a number of factors, including:

- How you respond to Ogen
- Whether you have had a hysterectomy
- Other medical conditions you may have.
As always, do not adjust your dose unless your healthcare provider specifically instructs you to do so.
