Brevicon Information

Brevicon Details (Brand and Generic)

CanadaPharmacyOnline offers Brevicon and other birth control medications at huge savings. We currently have the brand Brevicon from Canada manufactured by Pfizer. The generic version is not available.


Brevicon tablets are available in the strength of 0.5 mg/35 mcg.


Brevicon (Norethindrone/Ethinyl Estradiol) is used for the prevention of pregnancy. Brevicon is a birth control pill (oral contraceptive) that contains two female sex hormones (ethinyl estradiol and norethindrone). Brevicon has been shown to be highly effective in preventing pregnancy when taken as prescribed by your doctor. Birth control pills work by inhibiting the monthly release of an egg(s) by the ovaries. Some studies have demonstrated changes in the endometrium (lining of the womb) and mucus produced by the cervix (opening of the uterus) with the use of birth control pills. Pregnancy is always more risky than taking birth control pills, except in smokers older than age 35. The chance of becoming pregnant increases with incorrect use.

Side Effects and Precautions

The common Brevicon side effects may include tenderness of the breasts or liquid leaking from your breasts, nausea, vomiting, tremors, weight gain or loss, change in appetite, unexpected vaginal bleeding or spotting, changes in the usual menstrual period, mental depression, nervousness, increased blood sugar levels, drinking or urinating more frequently, liver problems with jaundice, an increase or decrease in hair growth, skin pigmentation.

Seek emergency medical attention if you have symptoms of a heart attack or an allergic reaction. Call your doctor right away if you have any of the serious side effects such as:
• Allergic reaction: rash, hives, swelling of the face, lip, tongue;
• Abdominal pain, nausea or vomiting;
• Breast lumps;
• Crohn’s disease or ulcerative colitis: cramps and bloating, diarrhea;
• Crushing chest pain or heaviness;

Tell your healthcare provider about all the medicines you take, including prescription and over-the-counter medicines. Drugs that may interact with Brevicon include anticonvulsants; antibiotics; antifungals; bronchodilator; cholesterol lowering agents; antacids; alpha-II adrenoreceptor agents (clonidine); antidiabetic Drugs; antihypertensive Agents; antipyretics; betamimetic Agents; corticosteroids; drugs for HIV infection; drugs for Hepatitis C virus (HCV); phenothiazine tranquilizers; sedatives and hypnotics; stimulants; tricyclic antidepressants. Caffeine and alcohol may also affect the efficacy of oral contraceptives. Blood clots are the most common serious side effect of birth control pills. Clots can occur in many areas of the body. The risk of clotting seems to increase with higher estrogen doses. It is important, therefore, to use as low a dosage of estrogen as possible. Some women who use birth control pills may be at increased risk of developing breast cancer. The most significant risk factors for breast cancer are increasing age and a history of breast cancer in the family (mother or sister). Other established risk factors include obesity, never having children, and having your first full term pregnancy at a late age. Birth control pills should never be taken if you think you are pregnant. They will not prevent the pregnancy from continuing and may interfere with the normal development of the baby. If you are breast feeding, consult your doctor before starting the birth control pill. The hormones in birth control pills are known to appear in breast milk. These hormones may decrease the flow of breast milk. Stop taking Brevicon and notify your doctor if you are having seizures more often.
