I have to take two antidepressants right now for depression and anxiety and i was wondering if there is any birth control that i cant take or ones that would mess with my medication. I am currently on wellbutrin and Prozac but my doctor is gonna put me back on trazodone during the school year
As far as I know, there's no interaction between antidepressants and birth control pills. However, the best person to ask would be your doctor- it's their job to prescribe whatever is best suited to you and the other meds you need to take.
(However, St. John's Wort, which some people take as a herbal medication for depression, DOES interfere with birth control pills, so do keep that in mind if you're into herbal medicine.)
