Sorry for the abundance of questions. I tried searching but did not find anything. I am wondering if Airborne would decrease the effectiveness of birth control pills? I took 3 tablets. 4 tablets is one dose. So not even a full dose I guess.

Vitamin supplements are not known to interact with oral contraceptives, no.

(But just to save you some cash? Have a Google about Airborne: it's pretty spendy stuff, and has been found not to do any of the things it says it will. Cash-wise, you're better off just eating well and taking a regular vitamin supplement.)

Thanks Heather I'll have to check that out. It IS pricey and I take Vitamin C supplements anyway so I think I'll just stick to that [Smile]
