    Everyone should know that one of the side effects of Provigil is that it lessens the effectiveness of Birth Control Pills.

    St. John's Wort too.

    This is a particular concern of mine. If anyone knows of any other drugs that do this please post on it.

    I've heard that some antibiotics will interfere with birth control pills.
    On another note, my insurance won't pay for Provigil. They say it's only approved for certain medical conditions and fibromyalgia isn't one of them. I am so sleepy most of the time it interfers with my life. I fall asleep at the computer or if I read for any lenght of time.
