I'm not sure if antidepressants make birth control any less effective. I'd suggest researching it on the internet and see what you come up with. I think you should be okay, the only things that really interfer with birth control is certain antibiotics.

I take both and from my understanding it's ok. I don't take BC to prevent pregnancy cause I can't get pregnant anymore, so make sure it won't affect your pills before taking both.
