Tracey Says:

I have been using Purbac for just over a year to treat adult acne. I am currently using a Mirena contraceptive. Will the use of Purbac in any way decrease the effectivness of Mirena and result in pregnancy?

Verwon Says:

Purbac is an antibiotic and they most commonly affect oral contraceptives the contain a form of estrogen. According to NIH reports, they do not normally cause a problem with inserts, such as Mirena, that contain only a form of progesterone, but they may cause Triphasil to be less effective.

The NIH warns that other side effects may include nausea, dizziness, irregular bleeding, and irritability.

Is there anything else I can help with?
