Jolessa Drug Interactions

Jolessa Drug Interactions Explained

The following sections explain in detail the potentially negative interactions that can occur when Jolessa is combined with any of the drugs listed above.
Aminoglutethimide (Cytadren)
Aminoglutethimide may make Jolessa less effective, possibly increasing your risk of pregnancy. Talk with your healthcare provider before using these medications together. You may need to use a backup method of contraception, such as condoms.
Antibiotics
There have been reports of accidental pregnancy occurring in women taking birth control pills and certain antibiotics. However, it is still uncertain how significant the interaction between birth control pills and antibiotics may be. Some antibiotics may be more likely to cause problems than others. Ask your healthcare provider if you need a backup method of contraception any time you take an antibiotic.
Aprepitant (Emend)
Aprepitant may make Jolessa less effective, perhaps increasing your chance of pregnancy. Talk with your healthcare provider before combining these medications. You may need to use a backup method of contraception.
Atorvastatin (Lipitor)
Atorvastatin may increase the level of Jolessa in your blood, which could increase your risk of Jolessa side effects. Check with your healthcare provider before taking these medications together.
Barbiturates
Barbiturates may cause your body to metabolize the hormones in Jolessa too quickly, increasing your risk of pregnancy. Ask your healthcare provider if you should use a different method of contraception while taking a barbiturate.
Cyclosporine (Gengraf, Neoral, Sandimmune)
Jolessa may increase the level of cyclosporine in your blood, increasing the chance of side effects of cyclosporine. Talk with your healthcare provider before taking these medications together. Your cyclosporine dosage may need to be reduced, or you may need to switch to a different method of contraception.
