Erythromycin does not affect the Implanon implant.
You can take most antibiotics without lowering the efficiency of the implant.
Its effectiveness however can be reduced by certain pills for tuberculosis such as rifampicin (Rifadin) and rifabutin (Mycobutin) and some drugs for epilepsy such as phenytoin (Epanutin), carbamazepine (Tegretol), phenobarbital and primidone (Mysoline).
