Can I Take Birth Control Pills Along With Hypertension Medication?
Can you take a pill (microgynon) together with hypertension medication (amlodiphin)?
Good morning. Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com
Microgynon pills contain reproductive hormone synthesis in the form of levonogestrel and ethinylestradiol. This is to influence the balance of the body's reproductive hormones so as to prevent pregnancy. Use must be in accordance with the rules of use and avoid the occurrence of oblivion drinking because it will reduce the effectiveness of contraception.
While amlodipine is a class of calcium blockers whose role is to regulate blood pressure from the body. Based on research in general, amlodipine can interact with several drugs that can influence the risk of higher side effects or decrease the effectiveness of the drugs. Some drugs found to interact with amlopidine are:
Ammodarone heart rhythm regulator, digoxin
Clopidogrel blood thinners
So it is better if you are going to consume a drug tell your doctor this matter in order to be considered related to interactions that might occur.
