Drug Interactions
Interactions between oral contraceptives and other drugs may lead to breakthrough bleeding and/or contraceptive failure. No specific interaction studies have been performed with Lydia Lacta.
Hepatic Metabolism: Interactions can occur with drugs that induce microsomal enzymes, which can result in increased clearance of sex hormones (eg, phenytoin, barbiturates, primidone, carbamazepine, rifampicin, and possibly also oxcarbazepine, topiramate, felbamate, ritonavir, griseofulvin and products containing St. John's Wort).
Women on treatment with any of these drugs should temporarily use a barrier method in addition to levonorgestrel or choose another method of contraception. The barrier method should be used during the time of concomitant drug administration and for 28 days after their discontinuation.
