Hello Luciana, Thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.


Visanne is a drug that contains the synthetic hormone progesterone, which is dienogest. This drug is used to treat symptoms due to endometriosis. Endometriosis is a condition found in uterine lining tissue (endometrium) outside the uterus, for example in the ovary, fallopian tube, vagina, intestine, or rectum. This condition causes severe stomach pain in the lower abdomen and pelvis during menstruation.


In general, if you take two or more drugs, it is recommended that you consult your doctor first because they can interact with one another so that the effectiveness of the drug can change and the side effects of the drug can increase. Even if you don't take it at the same time as Visanne, you should still avoid using some of the following drugs because it has interactions with Visanne:

epilepsy drugs such as phenytoin, carbamazepine
antidepressant drugs like fluoxetine
high blood pressure medications such as diltiazem and verapamil
antituberculosis drugs such as rifampicin
antifungal drugs such as ketoconazole, fluconazole
certain antibiotics
cimetidine

Therefore, if you are going to take other drugs, you should consult with your doctor before taking these drugs. The doctor needs to know what other drugs you are going to take before knowing whether the drug has interactions with Visanne.


Hopefully this information helps you.
