Will Amoxicillin Interfere With Jolessa

Patient : Will taking amoxicillin for strep throat interfere with my birth control pill, Jolessa ?
Symptoms:  None
Doctor :   Hi, Thanks for the query. I understand your concern. According to the available literature, amoxicillin may not interfere with the function of the birth control pills. Generally in only around 1 % of cases the drug interactions between amoxicillin and birth control pills are reported. If you want to avoid that small percentage of risk also, you can use some additional method of contraception like barrier method while using amoxicillin. Take care
