Medscape Logo

Medications that can affect levonorgestrel and ulipristal, which are commonly called the “morning after pill,” include those for:

  • Epilepsy
  • Tuberculosis
  • HIV
  • Fungal infections

The warning also covers the herbal remedy St John’s wort.

When asking for emergency contraceptive pills, the physician, nurse, or pharmacist needs to know if these medications have been used over the last 4 weeks.
