Dear Azel
Ciplatrim contains a compound called sibutramine which should not have the same effect as NSAIDs which contain different versions of compounds like ibuprofen, etc (anti-inflammatories). How safe the use of an appetite suppressant together with your birth control pill is going to be, will have to be decided by the dr who prescribes the Ciplatrim. Ciplatrim has to be prescribed by a medical dr after he/she has given you a thorough examination to determine if you don't suffer from any conditions such as heart or circulatory problems, which can cause highly negative side-effects with sibutramine. The dr also has to monitor your progress. So discuss the use of birth control pills together with Ciplatrim with the dr when you go for your medical examination.
