Customer Question

Hello. I have been prescribed lo loestrin fe and am supposed to start tonight as I just started my period.
I have a couple concerns after reading about the drug.
I am 46 and perimenopausal. I use rogaine. I've read this will increase hair loss?
I am on 100mg daily of topirimate. At those dose, will it still be effective for birth control?

Topiramet will decrease the contraceptive effect of ocp.And by any chance if pregnancy occurs there will be more chance of congenital deformity of the fetus.
