Drug Interactions With Wymzya Fe

More Detail on Drug Interactions With Wymzya Fe

The following sections explain in detail the potentially negative interactions that can occur when Wymzya Fe is combined with any of the drugs listed above.
 
Aminoglutethimide  
Combining Wymzya 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 many reports of accidental pregnancies occurring in women taking birth control pills and certain antibiotics together. However, the significance of these interactions is still uncertain, as studies have not shown most antibiotics to be likely to cause birth control pill failure.
 
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 more information).
 
Aprepitant  
Aprepitant can make Wymzya 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 Wymzya Fe too quickly, potentially increasing your risk of pregnancy. Ask your healthcare provider if you should use a different method of contraception while taking a barbiturate.
 
Cyclosporine  
Wymzya Fe may increase the level of cyclosporine in your blood, possibly increasing the chance of side effects of cyclosporine. Talk with your healthcare provider before taking these medications together. You may need a lower cyclosporine dose, or you may need to switch to a different method of contraception.
 
Modafinil  
Modafinil can make Wymzya Fe less effective, perhaps increasing your risk of pregnancy. Talk with your healthcare provider, as you may need to use a backup method of contraception.
 
Protease Inhibitors
Using Wymzya Fe 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.
 
Selegiline  
The hormones in Wymzya Fe may increase the level of selegiline in your blood, possibly increasing your risk of side effects. Your healthcare provider may need to lower your selegiline dosage or may recommend an alternate form of contraception.
 
St. John's Wort
St. John's wort (a commonly used herbal supplement) may decrease the effectiveness of Wymzya Fe, possibly increasing the chance of pregnancy. In general, you should not take St. John's wort while using Wymzya Fe.
 
Theophylline  
Wymzya Fe may increase the level of theophylline in your blood, possibly increasing the chance of theophylline side effects. Talk with your healthcare provider before taking these medications together. You may need a lower theophylline dose, or you may need to switch to a different method of contraception.
 
Various Seizure Medications
Some seizure medications may cause your body to metabolize the hormones in Wymzya Fe 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 seizure medication.
