Q. Does Neoprate affects working of birth control pills?
Yes, Neoprate does not have any effect on the working of birth control pills. However, contraceptives (birth control pills) may interfere with the working of Neoprate and seizures may occur. It is important that you inform your doctor that you are using birth control pills. Your doctor will keep a track on your response to the treatment and monitor the Neoprate levels in your blood levels.
Q. I am concerned because I have heard that Neoprate causes hair loss. Is it true?
Neoprate may cause thinning of hair, change of hair colour and even hair loss. If you are concerned talk to your doctor if it is possible to reduce the dose of Neoprate. Your hair may regrow after either reducing your dose or switching to a different medicine.
