Some drugs may interact with Enpresse (ethinyl estradiol/levonorgestrel) to cause a reduction in estrogen levels, and can therefore cause an increased incidence of breakthrough bleeding, menstrual irregularities and possibly reduce the effectiveness of the birth control.
Drugs that may interact with Enpresse include:
*some protease inhibitors (used in the treatment of HIV)
*possibly St. John’s wort.
*antibiotics (such as penicillins, tetracyclines)
Do not smoke while using birth control pills, especially if you are older than 35. Smoking can increase your risk of blood clots, stroke, or heart attack caused by birth control pills.
Always check with your doctor or pharmacist before you start taking any new medication or supplement.
