Follow carefully your dosing schedule and always ask your doctor or pharmacist if you have any questions. During the first week of taking this medication you should use a supplemental form of birth control since it takes a while to be effective. If used as a "morning after" pill, please follow the directions from your doctor.

This medication passes into breast milk and may affect milk production (may have harmful effects on a nursing infant). Consult your doctor before breast-feeding.

After you stop taking birth control pills, it may take a long time for you to become pregnant. Consult your doctor. Do not smoke cigarettes. Birth-control pills slightly increase your risk of strokes, heart attacks, gallbladder disease, blood clots, high blood pressure, vision problems, and liver tumors. The risk of stroke, blood clots, high blood pressure and heart attacks further increases with cigarette smoking (especially 15 or more cigarettes daily) and age (women older than 35/smokers or 40/nonsmokers years of age). Ask your pharmacist or doctor for a copy of the patient labeling which explains these risks in more detail. If you have any questions please consult your doctor, including questions regarding possible use in nonsmokers over 40 years of age.

Baggy Eyes Bothering You?
Why do I wake up in the morning with swollen, puffy eyes? I know this is common and that there are all kinds of remedies for it, but I've never found an explanation for why this occurs. Can you help?
There are a number of reasons why you might wake up with puffy eyelids. An allergy could be one explanation, but I'm sure you would know it if that were your problem. In most cases, puffy eyes are caused by the force of gravity. While you're lying down, fluid flows into the eye area and accumulates. Because the skin in this area is thinner than it is elsewhere on your face, the puffiness is more noticeable. If your eyelids return to normal after you've been up for a while, you can be pretty sure that this type of fluid pooling is to blame. I'm afraid that there isn't much you can do to prevent this from happening -- although you may try elevating your head on two or more pillows while you sleep.
The "bags" that can develop under the eyes of older people are usually the result of fat accumulating on the lower lids with age. In some people, just the opposite happens -- you lose the fat around your eyes and the skin sags. These changes don't affect everyone, but they tend to run in families and are fairly common. Here, too, there's really nothing you can do to prevent the problem. If it bothers you, you can try using a concealer to help cover up the bagginess. Choose a shade that's lighter than your skin tone or foundation.
I don't recommend it, but another solution is cosmetic surgery. Depending on the problem, you can either remove the accumulation of fat, or if you have too little fat around your eyes, a sort of reverse liposuction can be performed to add fat to the area. Both of these procedures are done on an outpatient basis and usually take about 45 minutes. The latter option is a relatively new procedure and seems to work pretty well. You should know that cosmetic addition of fat to areas on the face (such as the lips) usually doesn't last -- sooner or later, the body absorbs the fat -- and you have to repeat the procedure. So far, this doesn't seem to be happening with the new type of eye surgery, but it really is too soon to know.
