Can I Take Antibiotics Together With Birth Control Pills?
Hello, I want to ask, I am taking kb pills, but I am also doing dental work, I am advised to take antibiotics for teeth, but I am confused, can I take antibiotics and pik kb, or how many hours can I take antibiotics after taking the pills kb r nThank you
Kb pills do have drug interactions with several types of antibiotics. The effect of oral contraceptives is reduced when used together with antibiotics such as rifampin and tetracyclines. If the effect of birth control decreases, it is feared that it will decrease the effectiveness of the pill to prevent pregnancy.
For that, consult your dentist about the type of Kb pill you are using so that the doctor can use other types of antibiotics that do not affect your contraception.
For convenience and safety, Kb pills and antibiotics should not be taken together. Give a break of at least 1 hour to consume the drug.
I hope this helps.
