Premarin

Premarin tablets are taken as a form of hormone replacement therapy (HRT). The treatment contains estrogen, which is an artificial version of the hormone oestrogen which women naturally produce in their body.

Available in three strengths, Premarin is used to relieve the symptoms of the menopause and can also be used to reduce the risk of osteoporosis. An estrogen-only medication like this one may be taken alongside another form of HRT that contains progesterone if the patient has not had a hysterectomy.

What is Premarin?

Premarin is a hormone replacement therapy (HRT) which comes in the form of tablets. The medication contains the hormone estrogen (an artificial version of oestrogen) which is used to relieve symptoms of the menopause and reduce the chance of osteoporosis.

Because this type of HRT adds only oestrogen to the body, it is normally given to women who have had their womb removed in an operation (a hysterectomy). Women who have not had this procedure can still take Premarin, but if they do they’ll also be prescribed a progesterone-only version of HRT to take alongside it.

How does Premarin work?

During the menopause, the amount of estrogen which a woman naturally produces drops. This can cause various symptoms such as hot flushes, headaches, sweating during the night and mood swings. It can also lead to osteoporosis which means a loss of bone density, increasing the risk of fractures. Premarin is a way of supplementing this drop in hormones, reducing the effect of symptoms in the process.

When someone who still has their womb is taking this treatment, a progesterone-only HRT will also be taken to keep oestrogen levels in balance and avoid potential health hazards like endometrial cancer.

How do I take Premarin?

Your doctor or pharmacist should inform you of the exact way to take this medication. Premarin tablets are usually taken once every day, at around the same time each day. The tablets should be swallowed whole, since the medication could be affected if it is crushed or divided.

Your doctor will aim to give you the lowest dose for the shortest time to treat your symptoms. Speak to your doctor if you think the dose you’re taking is too strong or not strong enough. If you’re being treated for osteoporosis, the usual dose is one 0.625mg tablet per day, but your doctor may advise 1.25mg tablets.

What are the side effects of Premarin?

Taking Premarin is unlikely to produce side effects, but like with all medication there is at least some possibility of getting them. If you do experience any side effects while taking this treatment, then talk to your doctor, pharmacist or nurse.

Certain diseases have been reported more often in women who use HRT when compared to women who do not use HRT. These conditions include the following:

  • Breast cancer
  • Abnormal growth or cancer found in the lining of the womb
  • Heart disease
  • Blood clots in the veins of the legs or lungs
  • Ovarian cancer
  • Stroke
  • Memory loss if HRT is started over the age of 65

Can I take Premarin?

This medication is meant for women who are aged 45 or over and had their last menstrual period at least 12 months ago. If you are not already taking an HRT product or you are switching from another HRT which does not give you a monthly bleed, then you can start taking Premarin at any convenient time. If, however, you are changing from an HRT that gave you a monthly bleed, then the time to start Premarin is the day after you finish the course of the previous product (unless your doctor instructs otherwise).

You should avoid taking this medication if you have any of the following conditions:

  • If you have or ever had breast cancer, or suspect you have it
  • Any form of cancer which is sensitive to estrogens (e.g. cancer of the lining of the womb)
  • Unexplained vaginal bleeding
  • Excessive thickening of the womb lining that is not being treated
  • If you’ve ever had a blood clot in a vein, such as in the legs or lungs
  • A blood clotting disorder
  • If you’ve have or recently had a disease caused by blood clots in the arteries (e.g. stroke, angine or heart attack)
  • If you have or have previously had a liver disease
  • A rare blood problem called porphyria

What if I take too much Premarin?

If you take too many tablets, then you shouldn’t worry. You’re unlikely to have serious problems but you may experience some side effects. These potentially include nausea, breast tenderness, dizziness, abdominal pain and drowsiness/fatigue. If you have not had a hysterectomy, you may experience vaginal bleeding for a short period. If you’re ever concerned by the side effects you’re experiencing, contact your doctor or pharmacist as soon as you can.

What if I forget to take Premarin?

If you forget to take a tablet, then there’s no need to worry. Take it as soon as you remember (unless it’s right before your next one is due) and then carry on taking the rest of your tablets at the usual time. Don’t take a double dose to make up for a forgotten tablet. If you have not had a hysterectomy, then forgetting to take tablets can cause a short period of light bleeding.
