    Default Does cough medicine affect the pill?

    I have a terrible continuous cough and think I need to start taking some cough medicine but I was wondering does cough medicine affect the effectiveness of the pill? I don't want anymore babies either lol

    No it doesn't. New research also shows that antibiotics no longer do either (with a couple of pills being the exception, but I forget which ones). Cough mixture is fine, as are cold and flu tablets.
