I recently started taking Desogen, and I found a website that lists possible drug and non-drug interactions with this pill.
I've copied the following from (items in bold were done so by me)http://www.drugdigest.org/DD/DVH/Use...esogen,00.html
What drug(s) may interact with ethinyl estradiol; desogestrel? (Back to top)
antibiotics or medicines for infections, especially rifampin, rifabutin, rifapentine, and griseofulvin
aprepitant, a medicine used for chemotherapy-induced nausea and vomiting
barbiturate medicines for producing sleep or treating seizures (convulsions)
medicines for anxiety or sleeping problems, such as diazepam or temazepam
medicines for mental depression
medicines for diabetes, including troglitazone and pioglitazone
ritonavir or other medicines for the treatment of the HIV virus or AIDS
selegilinesoy isoflavones supplements
St. John's wort
tamoxifen or raloxifene
The ones I've placed in bold are those that surprised me, and that concern me the most.
Does anyone have any info or experience regarding these potential interactions? I guess I'm most concerned about the soy isoflavones as I consume a good deal of soy.
