Potassium-Sparing Diuretics
Combining Vestura with a potassium-sparing diuretic can increase the risk of high potassium levels in your blood (hyperkalemia). Your healthcare provider should regularly check your potassium levels if you are taking both of these medications.
 
Protease Inhibitors
Using Vestura with a protease inhibitor may increase your risk of pregnancy and can make the protease inhibitor less effective. Talk with your healthcare provider before combining these two medications.

St. John's Wort
St. John's wort (a commonly used herbal supplement) may decrease the effectiveness of Vestura, possibly increasing the chance of pregnancy. In general, you should not take St. John's wort while using Vestura.
