What should I avoid while taking Premarin?

If you are taking Premarin, you absolutely can't smoke. Smoking tobacco increases the risk for dangerous and potentially deadly blood clots to the brain, legs, lungs and heart. You may also want to avoid spending too much time in direct sunlight. Some women get darkened patches on their skin, so if you’re headed outside for the day, be sure to wear plenty of sunscreen and protective clothing. You should also not become pregnant or nurse while taking Premarin because it can harm the baby. There are also some drug interactions so make sure you let your doctor know about all prescription, over-the-counter and herbal medicines you are taking.
