Any OTC Levonorgestrel Product Is Okay for Emergency Contraception

Preventeza (pree-ven-TEE-zuh) will be the newest OTC emergency contraceptive.

But tell patients not to be swayed by its marketing..."from the makers of Vagisil." Preventeza is dosed as one levonorgestrel 1.5 mg tab...just like Plan B One-Step, Take Action, My Way, etc.

People of ANY age or gender can buy these. Advise choosing the least expensive product...they range from about $35 to $50.
