Birth control pill and vitamin

Patient

Q: Hello

I am a 17 years old girl who takes birth control pill, "Femme-Tab ED 20/100 Tablets"

I also take "ONCE DAILY WOMEN’S MULTI" (http://cenovis.com.au/once-daily-womens-multi/)
and "FENUGREEK" (http://www.naturesown.com.au/fenugreek-1000mg/)


Active indigence in ONCE DAILY WOMEN’S MULTI

Vitamin B6 (Pyridoxine Hydrochloride) 60.8mg
Vitamin B1 (Thiamine Nitrate) 4mg
