What is Premarin

Premarin is a conjugated oestrogen treatment taken to help alleviate menopause symptoms such as hot flushes, night sweats and vaginal dryness. Taking a treatment such as Premarin can also prevent drastic bone loss, which often occurs after menopause and can eventually lead to conditions such as osteoporosis. Premarin comes in tablet form and should be taken daily. In women who have not had a hysterectomy, Premarin is often prescribed alongside progestogen to promote womb health.

How do Premarin tablets work?

Premarin is a conjugated oestrogen hormone replacement treatment, which means that it contains a number of different types of oestrogens from natural sources. Oestrogen occurs naturally in the female body and is responsible for regulating many processes, which is why menopause can cause many uncomfortable symptoms, including hot flushes, night sweats, vaginal dryness, loss of sex drive, incontinence and loss of bone mass.

What are the benefits of Premarin?

Premarin is used to alleviate the symptoms of menopause where they are particularly uncomfortable, in particularly:

  • Vaginal dryness
  • Itching, burning
  • Hot flashes
  • Bone loss as a result of a drop in oestrogen levels[1]

Lower oestrogen levels put women at a higher risk for certain illnesses like osteoporosis, a bone disease which can lead to fractures.

Other benefits of Premarin hormone replacement therapy tablets include:

  • Helping to prevent heart disease
  • Helping to preventing certain uterine cancers

How do I take Premarin?

How to take Premarin varies from patient to patient, however, in general a starting dose is a tablet a day. Unlike some other HRT treatments, Premarin has no pill-free days and is taken continuously during the 28 day menstrual cycle.

Your dosage will depend on your tolerance for the treatment and how much you require to alleviate your symptoms effectively. In general, a doctor will recommend the lowest effective dose, meaning that you are likely to start using the lowest dose and this may be adjusted if it is required and you aren't experiencing any severe side effects.

If you have not had a hysterectomy, then you will probably be using a progestogen treatment alongside Premarin, in which case you may have to take few days break from taking your oestrogen supplement while you are still taking Premarin.

What are the dosages for Premarin tablets?

Premarin is available in a 300 mcg, 625 mcg and 1.25mg dose, although you'll most likely be prescribed the smallest dose to begin with.

The dosages available have been specifically formulated by the manufacturer Pfizer to be maximally efficient whilst also minimising potential side effects as much as possible.

Premarin also comes as a cream to treat vaginal-specific symptoms.

What are the side effects of Premarin?

Whilst side effects when using Premarin are unusual, it's important to be aware that Premarin is a hormone replacement therapy treatment and due to the changes in hormone levels, it can increase the risk of certain other conditions. Also, all prescription medicines come with some risk of adverse effects.

Using Premarin or oestrogen treatments can increase your risk of stroke, heart attack, breast cancer and blood clots, which is why it should only be taken on the recommendation of your doctor with routine check-ups.

Side effects of this treatment can sometimes include:

  • Headaches
  • Abdominal pain
  • Nausea
  • Anxiety
  • Back and/or muscle pain
  • Joint pain
  • Vaginal bleeding

Some women have also reported experiencing slight spotting, and/or a change in their sex drive.

What are the precautions/interactions of Premarin?

Premarin is available from HealthExpress to women who have been prescribed it by their doctor and who are still visiting their doctor for routine check-ups. You may not be prescribed this treatment to buy if you:

  • Have a history of breast cancer, endometriosis or fibroids, among others.
  • Are taking anticonvulsant medications
  • Are taking treatments for tuberculosis or HIV, St John's wort or metyrapone

For further information about the side effects, precautions, and interactions of Premarin, please refer to the patient leaflet that is included in your medication as well as being available for download at the bottom of the page.

How can I buy Premarin online safely?

You can order Premarin online from HealthExpress by starting a consultation today. However, due to the nature of the treatment, we only recommend that patients who have already been prescribed Premarin order it. Simply complete a consultation for your treatment and this will be assessed by one of our partner doctors, who will issue a prescription if they feel that this medication is suitable for you. This prescription will then be passed to our pharmacy, from where your treatment will be shipped directly to your door. If you live in London and order before 4.30pm, you could have your medication today.
