Birth control and Plan B

Patient : Hi, i have a question about Plan B and my birth control (trisprintec). how do i use plan b and take my birth control? should my birth control be taken regularly? and should plan b taken before, after, or at the same time as my birth control?
Doctor :   You do not need to take plan B when on oral birth control pill. Plan B is recommended as an emergency only when i) you d id not use contraception or ii) you missed 2 or more doses of the birth control pill. Plan B is best taken within 24 hours of unprotected sex. I hope that helps
