Premarin is a form of oral medication that contains conjugated oestrogens. This is a mixture of oestrogens acquired from natural sources. Oestrogen is one of the main female sex hormones produced by the ovaries. Oestrogen is necessary for a lot of development in the female body.
Menopause causes distressing symptoms such as hot flashes, and vaginal dryness, burning, and irritation, this medication is used to make these distressing symptoms tolerable. Other uses of this medication include prevention of osteoporosis in postmenopausal women, and replacing oestrogen in women with ovarian failure or other conditions that cause a lack of natural oestrogen in the body. This medicine can also be used as part of cancer treatment in women and men.
Premarin should not be used to prevent heart disease or dementia, because this medicine may actually increase your risk of developing these conditions.
Premarin's primary benefits are that as a hormonal replacement therapy treatment it helps to alleviate symptoms associated with the menopause, including vaginal dryness, hot flushes, irritation and burning. It can also be used to help reduce the risk of developing osteoporosis (thin weak bones) if other treatment has proved ineffective.
Oestrogen is a female hormone that is produced by the ovaries. The ovaries produce less oestrogen when menopause is reached, resulting in menopausal symptoms. As a conjugated oestrogen medication, this medicine works as an oestrogen replacement hormone to help manage menopausal symptoms.
Premarin can generally be used when you start to experience menopausal symptoms, which for most women is between the ages of 40-60. Ideally, it should be used until your mid fifties. If you have not had a hysterectomy then this HRT will not be suitable. If you are allergic to oestrogen or any of the ingredients in Premarin then it is recommended that you do not take this medication. If you have a history of heart attack; blot clotting such as thrombosis or stroke; liver disease or dysfunction; abnormal or diagnosed vaginal bleeding; or any type of history with oestrogen-dependent breast or uterine cancer then you should not take this medication.
Premarin should be taken in different dosages depending on the type of condition you want to treat. For menopausal purposes, the lowest effective oral dose is usually prescribed, which is 300mcg. The two higher dosages are 625mcg and 1.25mg. The tablets are usually taken once daily. Conjugated medication tablets such as Premarin can either be taken continuously (ideally up to your mid 50s) or in a cycle (25 days on the medication and 5 days off). The recommended dosage for women suffering from osteoporosis is usually 625mcg or 1.25mg daily continuously. Women who have not had their uterus removed should also take this treatment with a progestogen (another female sex hormone), in order to protect the uterus from the harmful effects caused by oestrogen for 12-14 days each month of a woman’s cycle.
It is vital to take this medication as prescribed by your doctor. Should you miss a dose, you should continue to take the next dose as usual. Do not double dose. Likewise you will need to have regular check ups with your doctor to make sure that this medication is both safe and effective for you.
