My doctor said that that's what they used to thought, and nowadays most doctors are convinced that's outdated information
Actually it IS whoa. It's an interjection with a proper spelling. I consulted a dictionary. I didn't just know this. I do think that I've always spelled it "whoa," though. It's like how a lot of people see "yea," thinking it's "yeah," but it's actually another spelling of "yay."
Interestingly, sabotaging birth control to get a pregnancy actually is a notable problem - but statistics suggest it's more commonly abusive men doing it to control their partners, as it's much harder to get out of a bad relationship when you're pregnant or have kids (abusive partners generally also control the finances). The myth that women do it frequently is largely due to men not understanding the failure rate of different kinds of birth control and societal attitudes reinforcing the idea that women lie and all desperately want babies. Even if a birth control method has a success rate of 99.99%, sex is something that happens so often that there's still going to be quite a lot of women who get pregnant from that 0.01%. I have an ex who was born through condoms AND the pill.
Just because she's a pharmacist, doesn't means she's a good one.
Any halfway decent pharmacist looks shit like this up EVERY time there is a lack of knowledge or surety as to what the drug/drug reactions will be. There's a slight excuse for a lay person to not know shit like this but for a pharmacist that's plain moronic. @#73 most doctors are completely oblivious to what drugs do, they just prescribe shit and don't even think about what other drugs the patient is on. Pharmacists save a huge amount of lives from doctor ineptitude every day.
Actually, the pharmacist is responsible for asking if they have any questions and letting people know of the side effects. Half the time doctors don't know the shit they're prescribing or what it can do when mixed with other prescriptions. Had to fire a doctor because he prescribed and prescribed, which led to me being in the hospital because of it. The pharmacist questioned the doctors choice in prescribing them all together.
It's possible it wasn't on either bottle and she did the research afterwords, pharmacists don't know everything, not rating this one, it's more of a Fuck Her Life.
information like that isnt written on any bottle. when given a prescription for antibiotics whilst on the pill, the doctor should verbally give you a warning, as should the pharmacist when collecting the actual medication. in the end, being a pharmacist herself she should have known better.
You are also usually warned when you are prescribed the contraceptive pill and if says on the instructions in the box. It's a pretty difficult thing to miss of you're taking your medications correctly and work in an environment where you should be warning patients of this. tl;dr I agree she's bullshitting or she's really dumb
EVERY pharmacist I worked with (mostly outpatient) knew that SMALL fact. They ALWAYS made it a point to tell patients that Antibiotics could interfere with the efficacy of birth control tablets (cya). It's on the stickers that print out with the labels that we have to put on the vials of antibiotics and birth control tablets. A pharmacist is supposed to check everything that leaves the pharmacy. It's their license that's on the line. Her not knowing that antibiotics interfere with birth control tablets is unbelievable. They may not know everything, but that's the most basic of basics of pharmacology. Physicians usually call the pharmacist to check dosage and sometimes drug interactions by the way. Pharmacists call doctors when they see errors/possible errors in prescriptions. They are the FINAL step between patients and prescription medicine, so they have to jump through many hoops to prove that they can continue to dispense medicine. That specific drug-drug interaction is too basic for any pharmacist not to know. She knew, she just wanted a baby... Um, congrats by the way. It's not the baby's fault, so if you're upset, please don't take it out on him/her.
Even i knew this interaction by the time i was 12, then again my mom is an RN and i used to read medical books when i was bored. Shame on her, she should know better. I would hate to know what other interactions she is not aware of...it could end with someone dying :(
