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.
