Based on medical: Literature, your listed meds won't affect bcp. The meds that usually lowers the efficacy of bcp are antibiotics, antifungals, antiviral, meds for seizure & depression. To be safe, space your bcp 10-12 hours from your herbals . Take care! http://www.Medicinenet.Com/oral_contraceptives/page3.Htm.
