Seasonique Drug Interactions

Seasonique Interactions Explained

The following sections explain in detail the potentially negative interactions that can occur when Seasonique is combined with any of the drugs listed above.
Aminoglutethimide (Cytadren)
Aminoglutethimide can make Seasonique 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. The significance of this interaction is still uncertain. Some antibiotics are more likely to cause problems than others. If you are taking an antibiotic, ask your healthcare provider if you need a backup method of contraception.
Aprepitant (Emend)
Aprepitant can make Seasonique less effective, perhaps increasing your chance of pregnancy. Talk with your healthcare provider before using these medications together. You may need to use a backup method of contraception.
Atorvastatin (Lipitor)
Atorvastatin may increase the level of Seasonique in your blood, which may increase your risk of Seasonique side effects. Check with your healthcare provider before taking these medications together.
Barbiturates
Barbiturates may cause your body to metabolize the hormones in Seasonique too quickly, increasing your risk of pregnancy. Ask your healthcare provider if you should use a different method of contraception while taking a barbiturate.
Certain Seizure Medications
Some seizure medications may cause your body to metabolize the hormones in Seasonique too quickly, increasing your risk of pregnancy. Ask your healthcare provider if you should use a different method of contraception while taking a seizure medication.
