Product information

Maexeni is a type of combined contraceptive pill. It is so-called because it combines two synthetic versions of oestrogen and progesterone. Combined pills are just one of many differing types of contraception, so if you’re considering contraception for the very first time, we recommend that you speak with your doctor or a sexual health nurse. Contraception can seem daunting, and it’s important you find the right one for you. 

Combined contraceptives contain two synthetic versions of hormones the female body naturally produces: oestrogen and progesterone. These hormones are responsible for several important reproductive functions. For example, oestrogen helps the female body to release eggs and helps to maintain the uterus lining. 

Maexeni works by superseding the normal processes these natural hormones have control over. It does this in several ways. Firstly, it prevents the ovaries from releasing an egg. The treatment also works by thickening the mucus membrane in the neck of the womb. This makes it much harder for sperm cells to also reach their destination. 

In the unlikely event that a female egg becomes fertilised by a male sperm, the pill also makes the lining of the womb extremely thin. This makes the final stage of the process, implantation, very difficult because the fertilised egg will struggle to implant itself in the womb. 

We understand that sometimes it isn’t always possible to visit a surgery to access your prescription, and then find the time to collect your medication from a pharmacy. At Treated.com, we aim to offer you the best and fastest service possible. 

You can renew your prescription for the combined contraceptive pill using our pharmacy, enabling you to buy Maexeni online. Simply fill out our quick and easy questionnaire. It will then be forwarded to one of our GMC-registered doctors or GPhC-registered prescribers for review. Pending their clinical approval, we will ship your medication using our reliable courier.

Directions

It is important you always take Maexeni as prescribed. There are 21 tablets in a strip and each strip is marked with the days of the week to help instruct you. 

  1. Take one Maexeni tablet a day. Do this for 21 consecutive days. 
  2. It is important that you aim to take the tablet at the same time every day. 
  3. After the 21st day, you must then stop taking Maexeni for seven days. 
  4. After this seven day waiting period, begin taking Maexeni again for 21 days. 
  5. You can take the tablets with water if this helps. 
  6. If you forget to take the pill, take it when you remember. If you remember within 12 hours, you are still protected against pregnancy. Then, continue with the 21 day course at the regular time the following day. 
  7. If you realise that you’ve forgotten to take the tablet and then consume it in excess of the 12-hour window, the protection may be reduced. Continue with the course, but it is advisable to utilise addition contraception (condoms) in these circumstances. 

This is not a comprehensive list of instructions. For more directional advice about taking the pill, and more detailed advice on what to do should you forget to take the pill, please see the patient information leaflet found in the Maexeni packaging.

Warnings

Taking it with other medicines

It is important you make your doctor aware of any medication you take or have taken. This includes non-prescription drugs and herbal remedies. You should make your doctor particularly aware of having ever taken any treatment for epilepsy, such as primidone, phenytoin, barbiturates or carbamazepine; any treatment for tuberculosis (like rifampicin); treatments for HIV infections, high blood pressure, St. John’s Wort (which is herbal remedy for depression); any medication that contains cyclosporine, products containing oestrogen or the anti-epileptic lamotrigine. 

Conditions to look out for

Similarly, it is important you make your doctor aware of any medical conditions you have had or have. It is particularly important to tell them if you suffer with breast cancer (or a close relative has suffered with breast cancer); if you have a disease of the liver or gallbladder, diabetes, depression, Crohn’s disease or inflammatory bowel disease; a blood disease called HUS, a blood disease called sickle cell anaemia, systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE), any disease related to pregnancy or the reproductive hormones, porphyria, chloasma or hereditary angioedema. 

If you have ever had a blood clot, a family history of blood clots or any medical condition related to clotting then it is of the utmost importance you tell your prescriber about this. Make your prescriber aware if there are any other medical conditions you may have had - even if you do not see it listed here. 

Pregnancy and breastfeeding

You should not take Maexeni if you are pregnant, nor is it advisable to take it while breastfeeding. If you become pregnant while taking Maexeni, though unlikely if taken correctly, you should speak with your doctor or a family planning specialist immediately. 

Driving and machinery 

There is nothing to suggest this medication impacts on the ability to drive. If you suffer with a severe migraine as a side effect of this medication, you may want to refrain from driving if you believe it’s going to affect your ability to do so safely. 

Contraception and cancer risks

Breast cancer has been observed more in women who take the combined pill compared with those who do not. Though it is unclear whether this is a result of the medication. If you’re concerned, ask your doctor or a sexual health nurse for help.

Lactose intolerance 

This treatment contains lactose and therefore might not be suitable for those who are lactose intolerant.
