Premarin Product Description
Premarin is an oral drug indicated for hormone replacement therapy in menopausal women. Oral Premarin helps to improve levels of the female hormone estrogen, naturally decreased at menopause.
Premarin is indicated to women in menopause to relieve menopausal and post-menopausal symptoms, like hot flushes, night sweats. Conjugated estrogen Premarin is used for prevention of postmenopausal osteoporosis, and treatment of abnormal uterine bleeding, and atrophic vaginitis.
Premarin can be administered for treatment of advanced carcinoma of the prostate gland in men, and for palliation treatment of breast cancer in men with metastatic disease. The recommended dose of Premarin for men and women may vary from 0.3mg to 1.25mg per day.
If you’ve missed an intake of Premarin at your scheduled time, take your next dose as soon as possible. But, if it is almost time for the next dose of the hormone drug, miss a Premarin pill, and then return to the normal schedule. Do not take double doses of Premarin, to make up for a missed one.
Before to start the estrogen therapy, it is recommended to weigh all the benefits and risks of the application of Premarin. The hormone therapy with Premarin is conducted in two way: in cyclical regimens or continuously with no interruption in therapy. In case of cyclical regimens, Premarin pills should be taken for 25 consecutive days and then paused for 5 days.
Hormone drug Premarin should be stored in a tightly closed container at room temperature not exceeding 25°C, out of reach of children.
Premarin Safety Information
Premarin, a conjugated estrogen, taken either as monotherapy, or combined with progestin, increases risks of deep vein thrombosis, stroke, and myocardial infarction. As soon as these events are suspected to be developed, it is recommended to stop application of Premarin.
Precautions are recommended in indication of Premarin alone, because the use of estrogen therapy alone without progesterone increases the risk of endometrial cancer (in women with a uterus). The hormone therapy with Premarin should be ceased in case of significant increase in blood pressure, of migraine pain, or deterioration of liver function.
