Drug Interactions With Jolivette
Aminoglutethimide, antibiotics, and modafinil are some of the medications that could potentially cause drug interactions with Jolivette. These medicines may reduce the effectiveness of the birth control pill and increase your risk of unintentional pregnancy. Make sure to use a backup method of contraception until you can speak to your healthcare provider if you are unsure about any particular Jolivette drug interaction.
Jolivette® (norethindrone) is a generic version of Ortho Micronor®. It can potentially interact with several other medicines. Many of these interactions can be severe enough to lead to unintentional pregnancy, and a backup method of birth control may be recommended in many cases. Although many women are aware that antibiotics can interact with birth control pills, there are other medications that interact with Jolivette as well. Some of the medicines that may lead to Jolivette interactions include:
- Aminoglutethimide (Cytadren®)
- Aprepitant (Emend®)
- Barbiturate medications, including, but not limited to:
- St. John's wort (Hypericum perforatum).
