Women of childbearing age:

    You should not use ANDROCUR if you are pregnant. Therefore, it is necessary to determine that you are not pregnant before starting treatment.Treatment should be started on the first day of the menstrual period (the first day of bleeding). Only women who do not have menstrual bleeding (amenorrhea) can start ANDROCUR treatment immediately.

    From the first day of menstruation to the 10th day (10 days in total), 2 tablets of ANDROCUR are used per day. In addition, 1 tablet of DIANE-35 is taken daily on days 1-21 (21 days) to stabilize the menstrual cycle and prevent pregnancy. After a while, the dose can be reduced to half or 1 tablet per day by your doctor.

    If periodic combined therapy is applied, you should take the tablets at the same time each day.7-day tablet-free period following 21 days of use of DIANE-35 tablets and bleeding occurs during this time.

    Exactly 4 weeks (28 days) after the start of the first menstrual cycle therapy, the next cycle of combined therapy is started on the exact same day of the week, regardless of whether the bleeding has stopped or not.

    If your doctor notices clinical improvement during combination therapy with DIANE-35, he or she may reduce the daily dosage of ANDROCUR to 1 or 1/2 tablet during the first 10 days of combined therapy. DIANE-35 alone may be sufficient. No bleeding

    In rare cases, if bleeding does not occur, the tablet is temporarily discontinued and the doctor should be consulted to establish whether pregnancy is present before resuming tablet intake.Patients who are in the postmenopausal period or have had a hysterectomy

    ANDROCUR should be taken alone in postmenopausal patients or patients who have had a hysterectomy. Depending on the severity of the complaints, the average ANDROCUR dosage should be 1 to one tablet once daily for 21 days, followed by a 7-day tablet-free interval.
