Protease Inhibitors
Protease inhibitors may decrease the ability of your liver to metabolize Femtrace, leading to high levels of Femtrace in the body. This may increase the risk of Femtrace side effects. Check with your healthcare provider before combining Femtrace with a protease inhibitor.
 
Rifamycin Antibiotics
Rifamycin antibiotics may cause your body to metabolize the hormones in Femtrace too quickly, leading to low levels of Femtrace in the body. Although this can make Femtrace less effective, it is not a dangerous drug interaction.
 
St. John's Wort
St. John's wort (a commonly used herbal supplement) may cause your body to metabolize the hormones in Femtrace too quickly, leading to low levels of Femtrace in the body. Although this can make Femtrace less effective, it is not a dangerous drug interaction.
