Femera Dosage

I have just been prescribed Femera. My doctor told me to take all 10 pills on day 3 of my cycle. Has anyone else taken this drug in that dosage? From what I have been reading, others don't take them all at once.

That does sound unusual. Are you sure she didn't say take all ten pills, STARTING on cd 3? Meaning, you'd be done by cd 13?
I'd call and ask for clarification. I'm on Clomid, not Femara, but I'm under the impression they work similarly, and Clomid is spaced out one pill each day for a certain number of days.

Yes, I went back yesterday to confirm and he told me the same thing. I asked if there would be any side effects to taking them all at once and he tells me there won't be but I can't help but find it odd.

I was on Femara before my first pregnancy.  I took one pill each day for 10 days, just like clomid dosing.  Femara is a breast cancer drug and not sure how the side effects would turn out when taking 10 pills in one day.  Sounds very unusual.
