Good question. I am leaning towards V25.41. I am leaning that way because of the wording "previously prescribed contraceptive". Whether or not it was her method of contraception previously, doesn't change that it was in fact a contraceptive that was previous prescribed. Using the V25.01 makes it sound as though this is just now being prescribed. I will be curious to see how others view this. Those are my thoughts.

I have to agree, I feel it would be the V25.41, the medication is the same, the side effects won't change. They should have counceled her on all that when they prescribed the first time. My thoughts only!! Let us know what you decide please?
