    Would be an interesting side effect for you.... Fingers crossed the news is what you want it to be.

    I am on the pill with it. My doctor would have advised if it had an effect.

    Obviouly if you get diohrea (dodgy spelling) on it then it will effect the effectiveness of the pill.

    I take mine last thing at night to prevent that.

    I agree with hungary, my nurse did mention it, but only as a something to be cautious of if I was experiencing any side effects.

    I Googled it, and this is what NetDoctor says:

    .

    I always take my contraceptive at around 10pm, a few hours after taking my Xenical...and so far so good!! :D
