A good question to ask the doctor who prescribed it. Everyone is different, and you have the right to ask questions of your healthcare provider. Even if it’s after the visit.

YES!! It tells you on the information pamphlet that comes with it. Pretty much ALL antibiotics cancel out birth control pills!


Just about any and all antibiotics counteracts birth control

Yes you can always call the pharmacy and ask .

Most antibiotics do not affect contraception. It’s now thought that the only types of antibiotic that interact with hormonal contraception and make it less effective are rifampicin-like antibiotics.
