Asked in Birth Control, Birth Control Pill, Drug Interactions, Antibiotics

Do antibiotics affect the birth control pill?

Study after study shows that there are no clinically significant drug interactions* between the vast majority of antibiotics and the birth control pill. Anecdotal evidence from health care providers has led some to recommend using a backup method of birth control for a week after using antibiotics. Long-term use (as for acne) does not increase the risk of pregnancy. There are a few antibiotics, such as rifampin and griseofulvin and some HIV medications, that do interact. The safest approach is to check...
Asked in Medication and Drugs, Drug Interactions, Hydrocodone, Ibuprofen, Painkillers, Anti-Inflammatories

Can you take hydrocodone and Ibuprofen together?

Yes, you can. Ibuprofen and Hydrocodone work in different ways. When Hydrocodone is prescribed it is commonly prescribed in combination with acetaminophen (Tylenol), but sometimes prescribed with ibuprofen (Vicoprofen). Hydrocodone is an opioid narcotic that works by blocking opioid pain receptors. Ibuprofen is not a narcotic and works differently to block pain. Many healthcare providers including myself will tell patients to start off by taking ibuprofen (400 mg). If the pain still persists after 30 minutes or so take the hydrocodone. There is...

Can you get the flu shot while taking Flagyl?

There is no drug interaction problem between the flu vaccine and Flagyl. But whether you get the vaccination while still taking the antibiotic may depend on why you are taking antibiotics.

Will rhus tox interfere with your Coumadin?

Rhus Tox seems to be a homeopathic compound derrived from the plant Rhus toxicodendron-- a plant that I'm pretty sure doesn't exist. The articles call it Poison Ivy, but while that plant is sometimes archaically named as genus Rhus, it's also genus Toxicodendron-- for instance, the Poison Ivy I know and love from hiking is Toxicodendron radicans. T. radicans is rich in urushiol -- a truly nasty irritant toxin related to antigenic response. In other words, dangerous stuff. It's hard for me to...

Asked in Medication and Drugs, Drug Interactions

Is morphine sulfate considered a sulfa drug?

No. Sulfa drugs are usually a type of antiobiotics (such as trimethoprim-sulfamethaxazole). The "sulfate" in morphine sulfate just means that the morphine is bound to a salt of sulphuric acid. antibiotic sulfonamides are different structurally from the non-antibiotic sulfonamides, and appear to be much more likely to result in allergic reactions. Many of the sulfa non-antibiotics, therefore, do not cause problems in people with sulfa antibiotic allergy, although some people who are very sensitive may have a problem, it is unlikely.
