Will My Medicines Interfere With Alyacen?

Modafinil or Armodafinil
Modafinil or armodafinil can make Alyacen less effective, possibly increasing your risk of pregnancy. Talk with your healthcare provider, as you may need to use a backup method of contraception.
 
Numerous Seizure Medications
Some seizure medications may cause your body to metabolize the hormones in Alyacen too quickly, potentially increasing your risk of pregnancy. Ask your healthcare provider if you should use a different method of contraception while taking a seizure medication.
 
Protease Inhibitors
Using Alyacen with a protease inhibitor may increase your risk of pregnancy and can make the protease inhibitor less effective. Talk with your healthcare provider before combining these medications.
 
Selegiline
The hormones in Alyacen may increase the level of selegiline in your blood, possibly increasing your risk for side effects. Your healthcare provider may need to lower your selegiline dosage, or may recommend an alternate form of contraception.
 
St. John's Wort
St. John's wort (a commonly used herbal supplement) can decrease the effectiveness of Alyacen, perhaps increasing the chance of pregnancy. In general, you should not take St. John's wort while using Alyacen.
