Hormonal Contraceptives
Equetro can make hormonal contraceptives (including birth control pills, implants, patches, and rings) less effective, increasing your chances of pregnancy. Talk with your healthcare provider about non-hormonal forms of contraception (such as condoms).

Combining lithium with Equetro can increase your risk of side effects. Talk with your healthcare provider before taking these medications together.
