Drugs That Can React With Marlissa

More Information on Drug Interactions With Marlissa

The following sections explain in detail the potentially negative interactions that can occur when Marlissa is combined with any of the drugs listed above.
 
Aminoglutethimide
Aminoglutethimide can make Marlissa less effective, possibly increasing 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. Ask your healthcare provider if you need to use a backup method of contraception while you are taking an antibiotic (see Antibiotics and Birth Control Pills for more information).
 
If it is very important for you to avoid pregnancy, it might be a good idea to use a backup method of contraception while taking any antibiotics; however, this will likely be unnecessary in many cases.
 
Aprepitant
Aprepitant can make Marlissa 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 Marlissa too quickly, which could increase your risk of pregnancy. Ask your healthcare provider if you should use a different method of contraception while taking a barbiturate.
 
Cyclosporine
Marlissa may increase the level of cyclosporine in your blood, possibly increasing the chance for side effects. Talk with your healthcare provider before taking these medications together. You may need a lower cyclosporine dosage, or you may need to switch to a different method of contraception.
