What is the dose of your medication?
An indication is a term used for the list of condition or symptom or illness for which the medicine is prescribed or used by the patient. For example, acetaminophen or paracetamol is used for fever by the patient, or the doctor prescribes it for a headache or body pains. Now fever, headache and body pains are the indications of paracetamol. A patient should be aware of the indications of medications used for common conditions because they can be taken over the counter in the pharmacy meaning without prescription by the Physician.
triphasic oral contraceptive
Concurrent use with hepatic enzyme inducers e.g. barbiturates, primidone, phenobarbitone, phenytoin, phenylbutazone, rifampicin, carbamazepine and griseofulvin may affect contraceptive efficacy. Short courses of broad-spectrum antibiotics may also reduce the efficacy of the oral contraceptive. Concurrent use with HIV protease and non-nucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitors may affect hepatic metabolism of Gestodene (Gestinol) and/or ethinylestradiol. May increase plasma concentrations of ciclosporin and decrease the serum levels of lamotrigine. Concurrent use with felbamate may increase the clearance of Gestodene (Gestinol). Gestodene (Gestinol) may increase serum levels of buprenorphine. Co-trimoxazole, miconazole and etoricoxib may increase serum levels of ethinylestradiol. Aprepitant, modafinil and bosentan may reduce the serum levels of ethinylestradiol. Metabolism of omeprazole may be inhibited by ethinylestradiol. GI absorption of ethinylestradiol may be increased by concurrent admin of paracetamol.
Concurrent treatment with St John’s wort may reduce efficacy of the oral contraceptive.
