More Info on Interactions With Vivelle-Dot
St. John's Wort
St. John's wort (a commonly used herbal supplement) 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.
Thyroid Replacement Medications
If you take medications for an underactive thyroid (hypothyroidism) together with Vivelle-Dot, your healthcare provider may need to increase the dose of your thyroid medication. Your healthcare provider should monitor you and make any necessary adjustments.
Various Antifungals or Antibiotics
Some antibiotic or antifungal medications may decrease the ability of your liver to metabolize Vivelle-Dot, leading to high levels of Vivelle-Dot in the body. This may increase the risk of Vivelle-Dot side effects. Check with your healthcare provider before combining Vivelle-Dot with certain antibiotics or antifungals.
