I am taking the cerelle contraceptive pill and have been

Patient: I am taking the cerelle contraceptive pill and have been given flucloxacillin the antibiotics by my doctor will taking these stop the cerelle pill from working?

 

 

Doctor: Hello,Thank you for your medical query at AskTheDoctor.comI understand your concern.No, there is no known intera ction between the antibiotic prescribed to you and the contraceptive pill ” Cerelle ” that you are using.So, please do not worry, the only antibiotics known to affect contraception is Rifampicin and Rifabutin.Hope this was helpful,Regards
