Nor-QD Drug Interactions

If substances such as St. John's wort, antibiotics, or barbiturates are taken in combination with Nor-QD, drug interactions could occur. These interactions can make the birth control pill less effective, possibly increasing the risk of pregnancy. It is generally recommended to use a backup method of birth control in case a Nor-QD drug interaction is severe enough to lead to unintentional pregnancy.
