Nordette and Duromine

Hello...

I have been put on Nordette contraception but prior to this, I was on Duromine ( for weight loss)

I would like to know if I can carry on using Duromine or will it cancel out Nordette as I do NOT want to fall pregnant.

While any medication that increases your metabolism would in theory lesson the effects of the Pill there are no studies to back this up. As with most other drug interactions with OCPs it is unlikely that diet pills would decrease the effectiveness of birth control pills.
