More Detail on Drug Interactions With Kurvelo

The following sections explain in detail the potentially negative reactions that can occur when Kurvelo is combined with any of the drugs listed above.
 
Aminoglutethimide  
Taking Kurvelo 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 accidental pregnancy occurring in women taking birth control pills together with certain antibiotics. However, several studies have shown that most antibiotics do not increase the risk of pregnancy in women taking birth control pills.
 
Ask your healthcare provider about whether you need to use a backup method of birth control if you are about to start treatment with an antibiotic (see Antibiotics and Birth Control Pills for more information). If it is very important to you to avoid pregnancy, you might consider using a backup method just to be safe.
 
Aprepitant  
Aprepitant can make Kurvelo less effective, 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 Kurvelo too quickly, increasing your risk of pregnancy. Ask your healthcare provider if you should use a different method of contraception while taking a barbiturate.
 
Cyclosporine  
Kurvelo may increase the level of cyclosporine in your blood, increasing your risk for cyclosporine side effects. Talk with your healthcare provider before taking these medications together. You may need a lower cyclosporine dose, or you may need to switch to a different method of contraception.
