Use and dosage: tablets must be taken in the order directed on the package every day and with some liquid as needed. One tablet is to be taken daily for 28 consecutive days. Start with the number 1 tablet in the top corner. Follow the direction of the arrows until all 28 tablets have been taken. Then no tablets for 7 days = each subsequent pack is started 7 days after the last tablet of the current pack. During this tablet-free interval of 7 days, withdrawal bleeding usually occurs. This usually starts on day 2-3 after the last tablet and may not have finished before the next pack is started.
Missed dose: if you miss a dose of Sucee tablets, take it as soon as you remember, even if this means taking two tablets simultaneously. Then continue the tablets as usual. If a tablet is missed in week 3, the next pack must be started as soon as the current pack’s active tablets are finished.
