While currently not available at Nurx™, Tilia Fe is a combination hormone-based birth control pill. By tricking your body into believing that you’re pregnant, it helps to prevent pregnancy. It is a generic birth control pill and therefore often more affordable, especially if you don’t have health insurance coverage.
- How Do I Take Tilia Fe?
Take Tilia Fe once daily or as directed by a doctor. It is important to take the pills at the same time of day each day and to take the pills in order. Skipping a pill could lessen its effectiveness.
- Is Tilia Fe Easy to Get?
In a word? Yes! At Nurx™, it's our mission to help you get easy, affordable access to birth control medication like Tilia Fe. However, it is only available with a prescription. Talk with your doctor or our experts to learn whether Tilia Fe is right for you.
- What Precautions Should I Take Before Taking Tilia Fe?
You should always consult your doctor and provide a full medical history, including any other medications that you are taking, before taking any prescription medication. Tell your doctor if you have any allergies.
It's especially important to discuss a history of blood clots or blood clotting disorders, cancer, depression, diabetes, heart problems, high blood pressure, stroke, liver disease, or thyroid problems.
This medication could affect your blood sugar if you have diabetes, so make sure to share results of your regular blood tests with your doctor and share symptoms of high blood sugar with her or him right away.
- What Are the Side Effects of Tilia Fe?
Some of the more common side effects of Tilia Fe are breast swelling or tenderness, nausea or vomiting, problems with contact lenses, vaginal discharge or itching, and changes in your period. Of course, some of these side effects — especially a lighter or less painful period — may be welcome!
Like any birth control medication, Tilia Fe can have some serious side effects, although these are rare. These include mood/mental changes, severe abdominal/stomach pain, and blood clots. Get medical help right away if you experience sudden fainting or dizziness, confusion, chest or left arm pain, sudden shortness of breath, or slurred speech. Itching or swelling, trouble breathing, a rash, or severe dizziness could be symptoms of a serious allergic reaction, so get medical help immediately if you experience any of these.
While these side effects sound scary, it's important to remember that they are very rare.
- Can Tilia Fe Be Used With Other Medications?
Yes, but it is important to give your doctor a full list of all medications that you're taking. Interactions with other medications could make Tilia Fe less effective.
This medication could interact with products including ospemifene, tamoxifen, aromatase inhibitors, tizanidine, tranexamic acid, and some combination products that are used to treat chronic hepatitis.
- Is Tilia Fe Triphasic?
Yes, Tilia Fe is a triphasic birth control pill, meaning that it has three different doses of hormones at different phases. That's why it's important to take each pill pack in order.
- Does Tilia Fe Cause Weight Gain?
It is a common misconception that hormonal birth control causes weight gain, but this is actually a myth. In fact, several studies have found that there is no correlation between taking hormonal birth control and weight gain.
