Birth Control and Diet Pills

Patient : I've been taking ortho cyclen for about 4 months. I was wondering if diet pills could have any effect on the pill. The diet pill is not FDA approved, but the ingredients listed are Vitamin B6, Cocoa Powder, Chromium, Spirulina, Green Tea Extract, Geranium Flower, and Natural Sourced Caffeine. I don't feel like I could get a straight answer by calling the company. Please help. Do you think this pill will affect my birth control?
Doctor :   Your diet pill would not would not affect ortho cyclen and make it less effective. However, you may not see the desired result of the diet pill when on contraceptive pill.
