There are no significant drug interactions known between orlistat and oral contraceptive pills.

From the manufacturer of Xenical; In 20 normal-weight female subjects, the treatment of XENICAL 120 mg three times a day for 23 days resulted in no changes in the ovulation-suppressing action of oral contraceptives.
