  • Learn proper use of your particular brand of medication.
  • Follow your dosing schedule carefully.
  • Be sure to ask your doctor or pharmacist if you have any questions.

  • Cigarette smoking (especially 15 or more cigarettes daily) and age (women older than 35/smokers or 40/nonsmokers years of age) further increase the risk of stroke, blood clots, high blood pressure and heart attacks.
  • Ask your pharmacist or doctor for a copy of the patient labeling which explains these risks in more detail.
  • Consult your doctor for any questions, including possible use in nonsmokers over 40 years of age.
