EllaOne interactions with drugs and foods

You may not be able to take EllaOne if you have taken certain medications in the past four weeks as they may make EllaOne less effective. These include medications for:

  • epilepsy, such as primidone, phenobarbital, phenytoin, carbamazepine
  • tuberculosis, such as rifampicin, rifabutin
  • HIV, such as ritonavir, efavirenz
  • fungal infections, such as griseofulvin
  • depressive moods, such as St John’s wort (Hypericum perforatum)

Do not take EllaOne with other emergency contraception pills that contain levonorgestrel, such as Levonelle. This is because if you take them together it may make them less effective.

Talk to your doctor or a healthcare professional about any medications you have taken in the past four weeks to find out if you can take EllaOne. Your doctor may prescribe a different type of emergency contraception, such as the copper intrauterine device (Cu-IUD).

Very easy and reliable service. The package was delivered discreetly and on time. Obviously yet to check if the actual product ( emergency contraceptives ) has worked but have recommended the service via zava to friends for future reference already.
