The ellaOne patient leaflet that comes with the Drug, states:

Some medicines may prevent ellaOne from working effectively. If you have used any of the medicines listed below during the last 4 weeks, ellaOne may be less suitable for you.
Your doctor may prescribe another type of (non - hormonal) emergency contraceptive, i.e. a copper intrauterine device (Cu-IUD):

- Medicines used to treat epilepsy (for example, primidone, phenobarbital, phenytoin, fosphenytoine, carbamazepine, oxcarbazepine and barbiturates)
- medicines used to treat tuberculosis (for example, rifampicin, rifabutin)
- a treatment for HIV (ritonavir, efavirenz, nevirapine)
- a medicine used to treat fungal infections (griseofulvin)
- herbal remedies containing St John's wort (Hypericum perforatum).

In future, you can just put the name of the Drug into the search field of this drugs.com website, & get that particular information directly.
