Dear Lolly
Seeing that the diet pills only suppress your appetite and should not be causing diarrhoea (like some of the other diet pills that contain laxatives), your absorption of the contraceptive should not be affected. I cannot comment on possible interactions of the pseudo-norepinephrine the diet pill contains with the hormone and what effects this may have on your mood, etc. It is always a good idea to discuss the use of over-the-counter medicines with your prescribing dr.
