Thanks for posting your query on health care magic.
Both these tablets have levonorgestrol as content.
So she can take any of then.
Usually pack contains 2 tablets.
One tablet has to be consumed within 72 hrs of intercourse. And the other 12 hours later.
This drug is safe. There are no major side effects other than nause vomiting and diarrhea.

Hope this helps.
