Brief Answer:
Deviry is a better choice

Detailed Answer:


I agree with the fact that you should start the medicines from Aug 25th. The two medicines prescribed to you are essentially the same generic drugs. You can start either. Deviry is easily available and cheaper. Make sure you don't miss a dose of it otherwise you may start bleeding.

Wish you good luck.

Detailed Answer:
Yes you can start from today . But not make it later than that . It can be taken for a period of otherwise14 days . After you stop the meds you will bleed within a few days gap. No major side effects can be expected .

Brief Answer:
either drug is ok to use

Detailed Answer: XXXXXXX

As I stated already both drugs are essentially the same. They are both the same in content-a hormone called progestin . It's just that deviry is cheaper. You can take either.

You have to start both and end both similarly.

Most people prefer deviry, because it's cheaper for long term use. You will need to buy 28 tabs for 14 days . You can take regestrone also if its not a problem for you. Normally i prescribe deviry because of the reasons I mentioned . There will be no bleeding if you take it properly and don't miss a dose.

Hope I answered your query.
