What is Premarin?

Premarin tablets contain conjugated oestrogens, a mixture of the naturally occurring female sex hormone oestrogen.

Premarin is used to treat menopause symptoms such as hot flashes and vaginal changes, and to prevent osteoporosis (bone loss) in menopausal women.

How to use Premarin

How should I take Premarin?

Generally, when oestrogen therapy is prescribed for a postmenopausal woman with a uterus, a progestogen should be considered to reduce the risk of endometrial cancer.

A woman without a uterus does not need a progestogen. In some cases, however, hysterectomized women with a history of endometriosis may need a progestogen.

PREMARIN may be taken without regard to meal.

Treatment of Moderate to Severe Menopausal symptoms

Generally, women should be started at 0.3 mg PREMARIN daily. Subsequent dosage adjustments may be made based upon the individual patient response.

PREMARIN therapy may be given continuously, with no interruption in therapy, or in cyclical regimens (regimens such as 25 days on drug followed by 5 days off drug), as is medically appropriate on an individual basis.

What happens if I miss a dose?

Take the missed dose as soon as you remember. Skip the missed dose if it is almost time for your next scheduled dose. Do not take extra medicine to make up for the missed dose.

What happens if I overdose?

Seek emergency medical attention

What should I avoid while taking Premarin?

Avoid smoking. It can greatly increase your risk of blood clots, stroke, or heart attack while using conjugated oestrogens.

Grapefruit and grapefruit juice may interact with conjugated oestrogens and lead to unwanted side effects.
