Ortho Tri-Cyclen - Overview
Ortho Tri-Cyclen Lo is a combination medication indicated for the prevention of pregnancy in women who elect to use oral contraceptives as a method of contraception. People who need an Ortho Tri-Cyclen prescription can connect with a medical provider through Push Health who can prescribe Ortho Tri-Cyclen when clinically appropriate to do so.
How Does Ortho Tri-Cyclen Work?
Ortho Tri-Cyclen Lo belongs to a class of medications known as oral contraceptives. Specifically, Ortho Tri-Cyclen Lo contains the medications compounds norgestimate (the third generation version of norethindrone found in Lo Loestrin Fe) and ethinyl estradiol. The contraceptive combination in Ortho Tri-Cyclen works by suppressing gonadotropins, leading to changes in the endometrium and cervical mucus and inhibiting ovulation. These physiological effects make it more difficult for a fertilized egg to reach and implant in the uterus which is why Ortho Tri-Cyclen Lo is used as a birth control prescription. Ortho Tri-Cyclen has also been used to treat acne of moderate severity in specific groups of patients.
Ortho Tri-Cyclen - Dosage and Cost
Ortho Tri-Cyclen tablets are white, light blue, and blue, depending on the formulation, and contain norgestimate 0.180 mg, 0.215 mg or 0.250 mg with ethinyl estradiol 0.035 mg along with some inactive ingredients. The ingredients in Ortho Tri-Cyclen Lo generally reach peak serum concentrations 2 hours after oral administration and a steady-state concentration is often achieved by day 7. Metabolites of the ingredients are eliminated in the urine and feces. The metabolites of norelgestromin and ethinyl estradiol are eliminated by renal and fecal pathways. Ortho Tri-Cyclen is moderately affordable at 50 cents per tablet. Ortho Tri-Cyclen coupons may be available online and some people might find that the cost of Ortho Tri-Cyclen tablets might be covered by one's insurance.
