This is simply outside our abilities and scope. A pharmacist will have a database of what medications or supplements are and are not known to interfere or interact with other medications, like your birth control pill.

If that information isn't in their database, then there's not going to be anything else to find, either.

We also have strong values that stand pretty counter to dieting culture, particularly as an organization that aims to support people's health, and also tend to have issues with what are often bunk or iffy products.

That all said, as this bottle will tell you, here are it's ingredients:
Caffeine 270.00 mg 0%
Coleus extract (as Coleus forskohlii) (root) 250.00 mg 0% **
Green coffee extract (as C. canephora robusta) (seed) 200.00 mg 0%
L-Theanine 100.00 mg 0%
Cocoa extract (as Theobroma cacao) (seed) 100.00 mg 0%
Yohimbe extract (as Pausinystalia yohimbe) (bark) 56.30 mg 0%
**

In a word, this is mostly sugar and caffeine with one amino acid that's going to be in most proteins you eat. Not only is this unlikely to do anything but get you wired (and empty your wallet), it also seems highly unlikely to create any issues with your BCPs, just like a mocha you ate with a turkey sandwich wouldn't.

Also, here is our page on the birth control pill, including a list on that page of what IS known to potentially interact with BCPs: Combined Oral Contraceptives (The Pill)
