Effects of Glutathione - JB
Dec 5, 2000

What are the effects of glutathione if taken with oral contraceptives? Will it result in delayed menstruation?

Response from Dr. Bartlett

In my research on this question, I was unable to identify an interaction between glutathione and oral contraceptives. However, you should be aware that drug interactions with glutathione have not been extensively studied. Certainly women with HIV infection may have irregular menses. I would suggest consulting with your gynecologist.
