I'm taking sprintec birth control. What other medications should I avoid, so it won't make the pill less effective. Such as tylenol (acetaminophen) etc?

In brief: Otc safe

Most over the counter medications are safe and will not affect your birth control.
Some antibiotics and other prescription medication can affect efficacy so you should ask the prescribing doctor at the time.
