Lo Loestrin Fe Chewable Or Not


I am switching from Genereress Fe 0.8mcg/25mcg to Lo Loestrin Fe 1mg/10mcg. I took Generess for 2yrs and loved it but the price more than doubled so I had to switch to a more affordable birth control. I am a firm believer in reading all information before starting anything. I have read all the information provied by my Dr. and it doesn't state ANYWHERE on my Lo Loestrin Fe information weather this is a chewable pill or not. My Generess was chewable and that was clearly stated on the packaging, not so much with my new Lo Loestrin Fe. It is made by the same company as Generess but each birth control differs. Is this meant to be chewed or swallowed whole???? HELP!

Hello, Lexi! How are you?

No, this one is meant to be swallowed whole.

The FDA lists the typical side effects of oral contraceptives as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, irritability, breakthrough bleeding and PMS-like symptoms.

Is there anything else I can help with?

Is it going to harm me if I chew this pill? Or could it not work correctly if chewed?
