Hi

No, fexofenadine, flucloxacillin and prednisolone do not interfere with contraceptive pills or patches. You can definitely use these drugs as prescribed along with Evra patch. Antibiotics used for tuberculosis treatment such as rifampicin has interactions with contraceptives. All other antibiotics can be used.

Take care. Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
