Drug Interactions With Progesterone Capsules

Antibiotics or Antifungal Medications
Many antibiotics or antifungals can affect the way your body metabolizes progesterone capsules, possibly leading to high progesterone levels. Check with your healthcare provider before taking progesterone capsules with an antibiotic or antifungal medication. In many cases, however, this drug interaction is not severe enough to require any action.
Barbiturates
Barbiturates may cause your body to metabolize the hormones in progesterone capsules too quickly, which could make progesterone capsules less effective. Let your healthcare provider know if you notice a decrease in the effectiveness of progesterone capsules while taking a barbiturate.
Modafinil (Provigil)
Modafinil may make progesterone capsules less effective. Let your healthcare provider know if you notice a decrease in the effectiveness of progesterone capsules while taking modafinil.
