Barbiturate Medications
Barbiturates may cause your body to metabolize the hormones in Vivelle-Dot too rapidly, leading to low levels of Vivelle-Dot in the body. This can make Vivelle-Dot less effective, but it is not a serious drug interaction.

Some seizure medications may cause your body to metabolize the hormones in Vivelle-Dot too quickly, leading to low levels of Vivelle-Dot in the body. Although this can make Vivelle-Dot less effective, it is not a dangerous drug interaction.
 
Cyclosporine (Gengraf, Neoral, Sandimmune)
Vivelle-Dot may increase the level of cyclosporine in your blood, increasing the chance of side effects of cyclosporine. Talk with your healthcare provider before taking these medications together. You may need a lower cyclosporine dose, or you may need to switch to one of the many Vivelle-Dot alternatives.
