I have been on Microgestin for 4 months. I take it at the exact time everyday. I am not on any oral antibiotics. When I started my new pack just now I decided to read the drug info it came with, (I should have read it when I first got it but I thought the doctor went over it pretty well) it said that a drug interaction it had was with salicylic acid.. I use a face wash for my acne that has 0.5% salicylic acid in it. I'm very confused because i'm not sure my topical face wash can lower my birth control's effectiveness?
I doubt topical would touch it. Particularly since you're rinsing that off. Aspirin is salicylic acid. And some other meds are salicylates. That is what would interact with your pills. But check in with your pharmacist if you're worried.
