Allergy meds and Birth Control

I have been taking Singular for almost a year now and have been receiving allergy shots for just as long. Just recently in December I was put on the birth control Tri-Sprintec and I was wondering does anyone out there know if the allergy medications would have any effect on my birth control? I am also taking Fluticasone Propionate for my allergies as well. I read in the little booklet the the Singular hasn't been known to effect other birth controls but I realize that it doesn't apply to all and I would like to put my mind and that of my boyfriend's to rest.

I should also mention I have type one Diabetes and acute asthma in which I take Albuterol sulfate for only when needed which isn't often.

I doubt it. You could go on drugs.com and check their drug interaction module. Or ask your doctor or pharmacist.

FWIW I never noticed an interaction between my BCP and all of the various allergy meds I've been on over the years (which includes Singulair, Nasonex [similar to fluticasone>, Zyrtec, Patanase, and various asthma meds). But that's me; your experience may vary.

Hope this helps. Take care & good luck. Judy

Hi Tails!

I wanted to offer you the WebMD/Medscape Drug Interaction Checker to see if you found any negative interactions. You should always contact your doctor as well with these types of concerns and questions. He/she will know best according to your medications and medical history.

Take care!
