Herbex

Hi Doc. I have been using Nordette as a contraceptive for the past four years now. Can I use herbex tablets with the pill as a slimming aid? I have heard that diet pills are not allowed on the pill but I was wondering since it consists mainly of herbs. It does not say anything on the leaflet. Thank you.

Dear Cee
Some diet medications may speed up liver metabolism that can cause the pill not to be absorbed well. But there are no definite guidelines. To be safe, try to take them at least 6 hours apart.
