Premarin is a female hormone replacement therapy (HRT) used to treat menopausal symptoms. Premarin is available as tablets containing the active ingredient conjugated oestrogen. The tablets can relieve the symptoms of menopause, such as hot flashes and vaginal dryness, by supplementing the body's natural supply of oestrogens.
Premarin tablets are prescribed to women who have undergone hysterectomy (surgical removal of the womb or uterus) or to postmenopausal women taking a progestogen medication, including progesterone or progestin such as utrogestan, levonorgestrel-releasing IUDs, medroxyprogesterone, and norethisterone.
You can buy Premarin tablets, by Pfizer, online from euroClinix’s UK registered pharmacy after completing a short and confidential health questionnaire.
Your levels of oestrogen, a sex hormone essential for the maintenance of bone density and sexual health in women, will reduce as menopause sets in. Premarin tablets contain a mixture of female oestrogen hormones that are used to replace the oestrogens no longer produced by the body.
Premarin can alleviate several symptoms of menopause, including:
Premarin is also able to prevent bone fractures and bone loss caused by osteoporosis, helping you stay mobile. It may also be used for certain conditions such as premature ovarian failure when taken along with a contraceptive treatment. However, in these cases it must have been recommended and your condition monitored by your doctor.
Taking hormone replacement therapy (HRT) with oestrogen alone has been shown to decrease the risk of developing coronary heart disease. Some studies show that women with a history of heart disease who take HRT with oestrogen alone are less likely to suffer from coronary heart disease than those who do not take HRT with oestrogen alone. You should discuss all your treatment options for preventing or treating heart disease with your healthcare provider before taking Premarin.
Women should be treated with Premarin at the lowest effective dose and for the shortest possible duration. For women without a uterus, the starting dose is between 0.3-1.25mg daily. The dosage is based on your medical condition and response to treatment. You should not change the dosage for any reason without your doctor’s advice.
Premarin is available in a variety of doses, including:
Follow all directions by your GP and the advice provided in the patient information leaflet. Here are some directions on how to use:
If you're not sure what to do after missing a dose, contact your doctor or pharmacist for advice.
Premarin is generally well-tolerated, but it can pose a slight increased risk of developing endometrial cancer (cancer of the lining of the uterus), risk of stroke, risk of breast cancer, heart disease, and blood clots with long-term use. Your doctor will want you to have regular check-ups if you take Premarin.
For some women, it may be unsafe to use Premarin. Talk to your doctor if you have any of the following conditions:
Tell your doctor about all medications you are using - as they may interact with Premarin. Be sure to tell your doctor about all medications you use, including supplements and herbal medicines. Please mention any of the following:
Additionally, do not drink grapefruit juice whilst taking this treatment.
Your doctor may need to change the doses of your medications or monitor you carefully for any side effects.
Studies have reported that women who have taken certain types of HRT for 5 or more years may be at a slightly higher risk of developing ovarian cancer. If you are more at risk of ovarian cancer, your doctor may not prescribe you Premarin.
Tell your doctor and pharmacist if you are allergic to conjugated oestrogens, any other medications, or any of the ingredients in these tablets.
All medicines carry risks and can cause adverse effects. Some of the common ones are mild and you should not be alarmed if you experience these.
You may experience the following Premarin side effects:
Seek immediate medical attention if you have unusual vaginal bleeding, chest pain, slurred speech, numbness or tingling in an arm or leg, swelling of the face, lips, tongue, or difficulty breathing. For all possible side effects, please refer to the patient leaflet.

If you decide to place an order for Premarin, we will ask you to complete an online questionnaire about your health and medical history, so our doctors can make sure the medication is right for you before prescribing it. This is because certain health conditions may mean that Premarin tablets should not be taken. We also need to make sure that the correct dosage of this treatment is prescribed, depending on what symptoms are being treated and how severe they are.
*Please note: Premarin is intended for women who have had their uterus removed. In any other case, you must be taking a progestogen to receive a Premarin prescription if you have not had your uterus or "womb" removed.
Note: You must complete a short online consultation so that our doctor can ensure that the treatment is suitable for you. The above pricing should only be used as a reference. The final decision to issue this treatment lies with the prescribing doctor.
