Menopause Home > Are Interactions With Activella a Concern for Me?

St. John's Wort
St. John's wort (a commonly used herbal supplement) may cause your body to metabolize the hormones in Activella too quickly, possibly leading to low levels of Activella in the body. Although this can make Activella less effective, it is not a dangerous drug interaction.
 
Thyroid Medications
If you take medications for an underactive thyroid (hypothyroidism) with Activella, your healthcare provider may need to increase the dose of your thyroid medication. He or she should monitor you and make any necessary dosing adjustments.
 
Various Antibiotics or Antifungals
Some antibiotic or antifungal medications may decrease the ability of your liver to metabolize Activella, potentially leading to high levels of Activella in the body. This may increase the risk of Activella side effects. Check with your healthcare provider before combining Activella with certain antibiotics or antifungals.
