Drug Interactions With Mono-Linyah

Your healthcare provider needs to know about all other medications, vitamins, or herbal supplements you are taking before starting Mono-Linyah. Drug interactions can occur when this birth control pill is combined with products such as St. John's wort, some antibiotics, and barbiturates. Interactions such as these may decrease the effectiveness of the birth control pill, which may lead to an unintentional pregnancy.

An Introduction to Mono-Linyah Interactions

Mono-Linyah™ (norgestimate/ethinyl estradiol) is a prescription oral contraceptive that is a generic version of Ortho-Cyclen®. Mono-Linyah may react with a number of other products. Some of these interactions can be significant enough to lead to accidental pregnancy, and a backup method of birth control (such as condoms) may be recommended in many cases.
If you do not know what to do about any particular Mono-Linyah drug interaction, it is a good idea to use a backup method of birth control until you can speak with your healthcare provider, just in case.
Some of the drugs that can interact with Mono-Linyah include but are not limited to:
  • Aminoglutethimide (Cytadren®)
  • Antibiotics
  • Aprepitant (Emend®)
  • Atorvastatin (Lipitor®) or combination medications that contain atorvastatin (Caduet®, Liptruzet™)
  • Barbiturate medications, such as:
    • Amobarbital (Amytal®)
    • Butalbital (Fioricet®, Fiorinal®)
    • Pentobarbital (Nembutal®)
    • Phenobarbital (Luminal®)
    • Secobarbital (Seconal®)
