Generess Fe Drug Interactions Explained

The following sections explain in detail the potentially negative interactions that can occur when Generess Fe is combined with any of the drugs listed above.
 
Aminoglutethimide
Combining Generess Fe with aminoglutethimide may increase your risk of 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 and certain antibiotics. However, the significance of this interaction is still uncertain. Some antibiotics are more likely to cause problems than others. If you are taking an antibiotic, ask your healthcare provider if you need to use a backup method of contraception (see Antibiotics and Birth Control Pills for a more in-depth discussion on this topic).
 
Aprepitant
Aprepitant can make Generess Fe 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 Generess Fe 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
Generess Fe may increase the level of cyclosporine in your blood, increasing the chance of side effects of cyclosporine. Talk with your healthcare provider before taking these medications together. Your cyclosporine dose may need to be reduced, or you may need to switch to a different method of contraception.
