Minivelle Drug Interactions

Minivelle Drug Interactions Explained

The following sections explain in detail the potentially negative interactions that can occur when Minivelle is combined with any of the drugs listed above.
 
Barbiturate Medications
Barbiturates may cause your body to metabolize the hormones in Minivelle too rapidly, leading to low levels of Minivelle in the body. This can make Minivelle less effective, but it is not a serious drug interaction.
 
Certain Seizure Medications
Some seizure medications may cause your body to metabolize the hormones in Minivelle too quickly, leading to low levels of Minivelle in the body. Although this can make Minivelle less effective, it is not a dangerous drug interaction.
 
Cyclosporine
Minivelle may increase the level of cyclosporine in your blood, increasing the chance of side effects. Talk with your healthcare provider before using these medications together. You may need a lower cyclosporine dosage, or you may need to switch to one of the many Minivelle alternatives.
 
Grapefruit Juice
Grapefruit juice may decrease the liver's ability to metabolize Minivelle, leading to high levels of Minivelle in the body. This may increase the risk of side effects.

Protease inhibitors may decrease the liver's ability to metabolize Minivelle, leading to high levels of Minivelle in the body. This may increase the risk of side effects. Check with your healthcare provider before combining these drugs.
 
Rifamycin Antibiotics
Rifamycin antibiotics may cause your body to metabolize the hormones in Minivelle too quickly, leading to low levels of Minivelle in the body. Although this can make Minivelle less effective, it is not a dangerous drug interaction.
