2 doctors agree
In brief: Unsure
There are no direct drug-drug interactions that i know of, however, this drug does affect metabolism and weight and with that can affect menses and absorption of other drugs.
I would seek the counsel of my pcp/gyn/mental health provider and would consider a consultation with a pharmacy doctorate and be cautious of the mixing of these meds if any concern. Being pregnany if unwanted is serious!
