If you are taking Teragezza for skin
treatment, you must not take any other
hormonal contraceptive at the same
time.

enzyme). Your doctor will prescribe
another type of contraceptive prior to
start of the treatment with these
medicinal products. Teragezza can be
restarted approximately 2 weeks after
completion of this treatment. See
section “Do not use Teragezza ”.

34 MM

Teragezza can also affect how well
other medicines work. Your doctor
may need to adjust the dose of your
other medicine. In addition, Teragezza
can also interfere with the results of
some blood tests, so always tell your
doctor that you are taking Teragezza if
you have a blood test.

34 MM

Teragezza with food and drink
There are no special instructions about
food and drink while on Teragezza.
Pregnancy and breast-feeding
Do not use Teragezza if you are
pregnant or are breast-feeding.
If you think you might be pregnant, do a
pregnancy test to confirm that you are
before you stop taking Teragezza.

Driving and using machines
Teragezza has no known effect on the
ability to drive or use machines.

Teragezza contains lactose
If you have been told by your doctor that
you have intolerance to some sugars,
contact your doctor before using
Teragezza.

34 MM

Teragezza and sun-beds or sunlamps
Sun-lamps are used by some women for
acne as well as to tan the skin. This is
not a very useful treatment for acne. Do
not use sun-beds or sun-lamps and
avoid prolonged sunbathing if you are
taking Teragezza. Their use increases
the chance of chloasma, a patchy
discolouration of the skin (as it does with
ordinary oral contraceptives).
3. How to take Teragezza

34 MM

Your doctor has chosen Teragezza as a
treatment for your severe acne or
excessive hair growth on your face and
body. However, Teragezza also has a
contraceptive effect, so it is important to
follow the advice below if you are relying
on Teragezza for contraception.

34 MM

If you are only using Teragezza for your
acne or excessive hair growth, you can
still follow this advice, but ask your
doctor if you are unsure.
