Levonelle-2 (POM) to be replaced

The Emergency Hormonal Contraceptive tablet, Levonelle-2 will be replaced from November 2005 with Levonelle-1500.

The new product contains a dose of 1500 micrograms of levonorgestrel in a single tablet that is taken as a single dose. This replaces the current method of taking two tablets (of 750 micrograms) 12 hours apart. The summary of product characteristics will be made available online at launch. [Update: SPC now available]

The new product is the same price and should offer greater convenience to patients.

Action: All clinicians (Doctors, Nurses and Pharmacists) who are involved in the provision of Emergency Hormonal Contraception should be aware of the change in product name and method of administration.
