Hello. This is more a question of curiosity rather than urgency, but it would still be helpful to know. I was just wondering what type of herbal remedies, supplements, teas etc. affected the pill. I am aware that St. John's Wort can affect the pill, but are there any others found in common things, e.g. chamomile tea (or just herbal teas) which would compromise its effectiveness?
Thanks! [Smile]

Hi there,

Something like chamomile tea is unlikely to decrease the efficacy of the pill. However, if you have a certain supplement or remedy in mind, the best person to talk to is your health care provider.
