Anything I post will have been covered in the iPLEDGE program you are required to sign up for. Doctors can't prescribe it unless you are signed up. Pharmacist can't dispense it unless you are signed up.

So know that it is important that you follow those guidelines perfectly. The most important one is the pregnancy category. It has been proven to cause birth defects. So do not get pregnant. Because of its mechanism on how it actually works, you should fill this at your normal pharmacy you get all other medications from. The pharmacist can verify that if it has an interaction with your birth control (it affects a few), they can contact the doctor and get it changed or recommend a secondary method of protection (condoms, spermicide)

Your doctor should also have drawn labs before starting to get a baseline on everything and monitors it occasionally just to be certain its not damaging any organ. But this is on their side. YOUR concern is to avoid pregnancy at all cost.

Read the iPLEDGE pamphlets they have given you a few times for complete information.
