Yaz & Allegra

Im going to be taking Yaz birth control next month. Is it safe to take with Allegra (allergy medication)? I forgot to tell the doc I am also taking Allegra.

  • Allergy meds dont affect birth control. Anti biotics will though so if you ever need to be on some you need to use an extra form of birth control.

  • You should talk to your dr about it and see if he wants you to switch from Allegra to Zyrtec. My allergist likes Zyrtec better. He says it's more affective (he switched me from Allegra to Zyrtec when I started BC), has less interactions with meds, and is much safer to take long term. I'd give your dr a call.
