Drug Interactions With Cesia

Drug interactions can occur if Cesia is taken with barbiturates, cyclosporine, or antibiotics, among other things. Since these drug interactions with Cesia may lead to an increased risk of side effects or pregnancy, you should tell your healthcare provider about all other medications you are taking. If drug interactions with Cesia are a concern, you may need a backup method of birth control.

Cesia (desogestrel/ethinyl estradiol) can interact with a number of other medicines. Many of these interactions can be quite severe and may even lead to accidental pregnancy.
