Drugs That Can React With Heather

Drug Interactions With Heather Explained

The following sections explain in detail the potentially negative interactions that can occur when Heather is combined with any of the drugs listed above. If you are unsure about any particular interaction, it is a good idea to use a backup method of birth control until you can speak with your healthcare provider.
 
Aminoglutethimide (Cytadren)
Combining Heather with aminoglutethimide may increase your risk of unintentional pregnancy. Talk with your healthcare provider before using these medications together. You may need to use a backup method of contraception (such as condoms).
 
Antibiotics
There have been reports of unintentional pregnancy occurring in women taking birth control pills together with certain antibiotics. It is still uncertain how significant these interactions may be, as many of these cases may have been simply a coincidence. Some antibiotics are more likely to cause problems than others. Ask your healthcare provider if you need to use a backup method of contraception any time you take an antibiotic.
 
Aprepitant (Emend)
Aprepitant can make Heather less effective, perhaps increasing your chance of pregnancy. Talk with your healthcare provider before using these medications together. You may need to use a backup method of contraception.
 
Barbiturates
Barbiturates may cause your body to metabolize the hormones in Heather too quickly, increasing your risk of pregnancy. Ask your healthcare provider if you should use a different method of contraception while taking a barbiturate.
 
Bosentan (Tracleer)
Bosentan can make Heather less effective, perhaps increasing your chance of pregnancy. Talk with your healthcare provider before using these medications together. You may need to use a backup method of contraception.
