Your healthcare provider has prescribed Zelleta® as your oral contraceptive. If you are starting Zelleta® for the first time, you should read your patient information leaflet (PIL) carefully. This is the leaflet contained in your pack of Zelleta® or you can download a replacement PIL or read about Zelleta® on this website. Understanding how to take Zelleta® correctly and what might make it less effective is essential to prevent an unwanted pregnancy.
If you received Cerazette® previously
If your doctor or other healthcare provider has changed your brand from Cerazette® to Zelleta®, or your pharmacist has issued Zelleta® against a generically written prescription, please don’t worry.
Zelleta® is just as effective at preventing pregnancy and you can take it with confidence.
Zelleta® contains exactly the same active ingredients at the same strength and dosage as Cerazette® and it works in exactly the same way as your old brand.
Apart from the different name, design of your packaging and a change in the name of the company manufacturing your oral contraceptive pill, nothing else has changed.
If you still have any concerns about your change of brand, please talk to your doctor or nurse.
Only your healthcare provider knows your full medical history, so if there is any information in the patient information leaflet or this website that you want to know more about or worries you, please talk to your doctor or other healthcare professional for advice and guidance.
