Question: does one time provigil use affect birth control?

 anxiousasker - Thu Oct 30, 2008 5:20 pm

I am currently one Aviane birth control. I have heard that Provigil affects birth control. I recently received a prescription and took my first dose without thinking. Does one time use affect birth control? I am not sure if I am at risk for pregnancy.

User avatar Hello,
This should not interfere with the effectiveness of your oral contraceptive.

Best wishes.
