Depo Provera Medication
Will taking estrogen lower the effectiveness of Depo-Provera since it is a pro estrogen medication?
No: Depoprovera is a progestin used by itself, not with a estrogen, for contraception. I could find no interaction with estrogen on an interaction check. If you are receiving Depoprovera injections for contraception, please inform your health care provider, and do not take any meds that have not been prescribed for you. ...Read more
What to do if only other medications I'm on are the Depo-Provera and kalonopin. Should I bring it up to my doctor?
I'm 22 and I don't have any high pressure or heart problems. The only medication I'm taking is the Depo-Provera shot. I want to try the raspberry ketone.?
Don't waste $$: Green coffee bean extract and rasberry ketones are of no value for any know medical condition. They will not help you lose weight, except in your wallet. Save your money and spend it on good food and exercise. Don't get your medical knowledge from friends, tv, the internet, or dr. Oz - he's rarely correct. ...Read more

Been on Depo Provera for a year little bleeding, started Zyprexa, (olanzapine) started bleeding is but I see no drug interactions. Is it a coincidence?
How long could it take for me to get my period after getting off Depo-Provera shot? And can I get fertility drugs to help me get pregnant faster?
Up to 9 months: You possibly might not see a period for 9 months from your last shot, although it is usually quicker. This assumes your periods were regular before you started the Depo. Fertility drugs are not appropriate in this situation and would be of marginal benefit even if you could find someone who would prescribe them ...Read more
Can having sp. Injections w/ lidocaine, Depo-Provera medrol, (methylprednisolone) isovue contrast dye affect a drug urinalysis?
No: This will not affect drug screens.Get a more detailed answer ›
Depo: Yes is good. Do shot every 11-13 weeks. Needs a negative pregnancy test before the 1st shot, and if you are late for the shot (more than 13 weeks). Cannot smoke, should not have high blood pressure, or history of blood clots. I like to check blood pressure on each shot. You period maybe irregular initially, but eventually you won't have period as long as you are using depo. ...Read more
Probably not: The ace dietary supplement website says it has caffeine, cocoa, and vitamins... So it should have no effect on one's Depo-Provera shot. However, the ace is not a true medication (it's just an over-the-counter "supplement") so it has no reliable scientific research to prove what effects and side effects it has on real people. That also means one cannot be sure of the types and amounts of its ingredients. ...Read more

Contraception: Depo-provera (an injection) is mainly used as a long-acting contraceptive in women. It usually also causes your periods to go away, sometimes for months, along with some other symptoms related to monthly cycling. It does increase metabolism but things that increase metabolism tend to increase appetite too. So if you have a weight problem it may make that worse. ...Read more
