what sort of interaction happens when taking panadol while on yasmin bcp?

It is not an antibiotic so it is NOT suppose to affect the effectiveness of the pill, so if does not do that then how does it affect the pill? [Confused]

Any time you get given a new medication, the thing to do is check in with your pharmacist about any others meds you are on. If you use the same pharmacy for both medications, though, they will usually have already checked that.

I don't have a pharmaceutical reference here for all meds because I'm not a pharmacist. We're just not the right source to ask for that kind of very specific information about multiple meds. But Panadol is just a brand of acetaminophen, which on the whole, is not a problem to take with oral contraceptives.

panadol has relatively no interaction issues when used with BCPs.
