In brief: Usually not

Most birth control pills don't have any effect on fibromyalgia; however, so little is actually known about the nature and progression of this disease and how it manifests in individuals, there is always the possibility of an adverse reaction.
It is unlikely . Taking the anti depressant medicines won't be affected by the pill.
