Hi. I m using Sandoz Azithromycin 500 for a bad throat infection. I am also using Yasmine and I m worried that this medication will influence the effect of the birthcontrol pills? Should I use extra protection for sex and for how long? I am 32 years old, married, weighs 50kg and no serious illnesses.
azithromycin is one of the safe and effective medicine
it has not interaction with the pills
so u can safely take it and need not to take extra care
do take azithromycin one hr before meal or two hr after meal
Antibiotics do not influence action of birthcontrol pill .if you are sticking to the daily dose regime of Yasmin along with Azithromycin,you need not have extra protection for family planning.Do continue with Yasmin strip to finish it.
