Dear Diet Pills
This is a difficult question to answer because there is some evidence that using certain diet pills together with contraceptives can interfere with the action of the contraceptive. A well known problem that can be caused by over-the-counter slimming pills which contain harsh laxatives is that they prevent complete absorption of the contraceptive pill and can thus cause pregnancies. So it depends on the type of diet pill you intend taking. Ask your pharmacist to check if the diet pill you want to use will interfere with Tryphasil or not before you start using the diet pill. Rather safe than sorry.
