Interaction of Oral pill with vitamin pills - Online Doctor Chats
Doctor : Hi
User : I just recently started taking ortho tri cyclen lo about a month ago and i have two questions. #1 is it still okay if i take the pill "roughly" around the same time every evening? for example I take it around 9:30 but sometimes i forget and take the pill around 10 or 10:30. Does that affect the affectiveness of the pill? #2 I just started taking vitamin pills called "be whole" by GNC that contain doesages of many vitamins and i was wondering if that could have an affect on the birth control i am taking?
How can i help you?
Please give me a mintue to go througt the problem.
User : okay thank you
Thanks for waiting.
Doctor : The effectiveness of the medication does not reduce when you have minor alterations in the timings.
And nor with the vitamin supplementation.
Do not make gross alteration in the timings like taking one in the morning and one in the evening.
Do not skip the drug.
Is there any other query?
User : no, you answered my question thoroughly thank you!
Thanks for consulting.
