FSRH | Ella-One and new drugs interacting with contraceptives

2nd April 2013 by Louise Hudman

FSRH has released two guidelines this month.

The first guideline is about Ella-One, the emergency contraceptive. They now advise that women who are breast-feeding should not feed their babies for 5 days after it’s use as significant levels are found in breast milk. Women should be encouraged to express and discard the milk so that their supplies don’t dry up.

The second guideline is about new anti-epileptic drugs (Perampanel and Eslicarbazepine acetate).
