How should I use PHILITH?

Oral contraceptives are indicated for the prevention of pregnancy in women who elect to use this product as a method of contraception.

Oral contraceptives are highly effective. Table 1 lists the typical accidental pregnancy rates for users of combination oral contraceptives and other methods of contraception. The efficacy of these contraceptive methods, except sterilization, depends upon the reliability with which they are used. Correct and consistent use of methods can result in lower failure rates.

The following is a summary of the instructions given to the patient in the “ ” section of the .

What should I look out for while using PHILITH?

Oral contraceptives should not be used in women who currently have the following conditions:

•Thrombophlebitis or thromboembolic disorders

•A past history of deep vein thrombophlebitis or thromboembolic disorders

•Cerebrovascular or coronary artery disease

•Known or suspected carcinoma of the breast

•Carcinoma of the endometrium or other known or suspected estrogen-dependent neoplasia

•Undiagnosed abnormal genital bleeding

•Cholestatic jaundice of pregnancy or jaundice with prior pill use

•Hepatic adenomas or carcinomas

•Known or suspected pregnancy

The use of oral contraceptives is associated with increased risk of several serious conditions including myocardial infarction, thromboembolism, stroke, hepatic neoplasia, and gallbladder disease, although the risk of serious morbidity or mortality is very small in healthy women without underlying risk factors. The risk of morbidity and mortality increases significantly in the presence of other underlying risk factors such as hypertension, hyperlipidemias, obesity and diabetes.

Practitioners prescribing oral contraceptives should be familiar with the following information relating to these risks.

The information contained in this package insert is principally based on studies carried out in patients who used oral contraceptives with higher formulations of estrogens and progestogens than those in common use today. The effect of long-term use of the oral contraceptives with lower formulations of both estrogens and progestogens remains to be determined.

Throughout this labeling, epidemiological studies reported are of two types: retrospective or case control studies and prospective or cohort studies. Case control studies provide a measure of the relative risk of a disease, namely, a of the incidence of a disease among oral contraceptive users to that among nonusers. The relative risk does not provide information on the actual clinical occurrence of a disease. Cohort studies provide a measure of attributable risk, which is the in the incidence of disease between oral contraceptive users and nonusers. The attributable risk does provide information about the actual occurrence of a disease in the population*. For further information, the reader is referred to a text on epidemiological methods.

What might happen if I take too much PHILITH?

Serious ill effects have not been reported following acute ingestion of large doses of oral contraceptives by young children. Overdosage may cause nausea, and withdrawal bleeding may occur in females.

Clinical Pharmacology

Combination oral contraceptives act by suppression of gonadotropins. Although the primary mechanism of this action is inhibition of ovulation, other alterations include changes in the cervical mucus (which increase the difficulty of sperm entry into the uterus) and the endometrium (which reduce the likelihood of implantation).

Non-Clinical Toxicology
Oral contraceptives should not be used in women who currently have the following conditions:

•Thrombophlebitis or thromboembolic disorders

•A past history of deep vein thrombophlebitis or thromboembolic disorders

•Cerebrovascular or coronary artery disease

•Known or suspected carcinoma of the breast

•Carcinoma of the endometrium or other known or suspected estrogen-dependent neoplasia

•Undiagnosed abnormal genital bleeding

•Cholestatic jaundice of pregnancy or jaundice with prior pill use

•Hepatic adenomas or carcinomas

•Known or suspected pregnancy

The use of oral contraceptives is associated with increased risk of several serious conditions including myocardial infarction, thromboembolism, stroke, hepatic neoplasia, and gallbladder disease, although the risk of serious morbidity or mortality is very small in healthy women without underlying risk factors. The risk of morbidity and mortality increases significantly in the presence of other underlying risk factors such as hypertension, hyperlipidemias, obesity and diabetes.
