Prempak-C FAQs

What is Prempak-C?

Prempak-C is hormonal replacement therapy (HRT) available in the form of an conjugated oestrogen tablet. Each pack contains two types of tablets, one of which is a naturally occurring type of oestrogen while the other is norgestrel, which is a synthetic type of progestogen. This treatment is intended to be used by women after menopause to help compensate for a drop in progesterone and oestrogen as a result of menopause.

What are the benefits of using Prempak-C?

Prempak-C is prescribed to women as a form of hormone replacement therapy (HRT) to help reduce the likelihood of uncomfortable menopause symptoms, which may include irregular periods, hot flushes, night sweats, mood swings and loss of bone mass. Prempak-C is a dual treatment that also contains progestogen which means that it can be used by women who haven't had a hysterectomy to reduce the risk of cancers and other complications.

How does Prempak-C work?

Prempak-C contains conjugated oestrogen, which is a natural form of oestrogen that works to alleviate most of the symptoms associated with falling oestrogen levels by replacing them. However, taking oestrogen on its own can cause the womb lining to grow, which can increase the risk of cancer if this growth is not monitored by progestogen. This is the purpose of norgestrel as part of this HRT treatment.

How to use Prempak-C

Using Prempak-C is very similar to using the contraceptive pill and as it is a hormone replacement treatment, you are like to experience a monthly bleed; this has to do with the progestogen in this treatment. This means that you take different levels of hormones at different points in your cycle. How you take it will largely depend on your doctor's instructions, but in general, you should take a dose every day at the same time each day to ensure that you don't forget to take it.

If you are still having your period, you should start taking the oestrogen tablet on the first day of your period and this should be continued for the next 16 days, at which point the progestogen tablets should be introduced and continued from day 17 to day 28.

Precautions/interactions when using take Prempak-C

Prempak-C will most likely have been prescribed to you if you haven't had a hysterectomy and you are experiencing particularly bothersome symptoms of menopause. However, this treatment will only be available for women to buy who have already been prescribed it by their doctor. There are also some precautions that should be considered before taking Prempak-C.

  • Prempak-C shouldn't be taken if you are allergic to any of the active ingredients in the treatment
  • If you've recently experienced cardiovascular problems, you have a condition that increases your risk of blood clotting, or if you have an oestrogen-dependent form of cancer, you shouldn't be taking Prempak-C
  • Prempak-C should be taken with caution if you have a history of benign breast lumps, endometriosis, asthma, or depression
  • Caution should also be taken if you are currently dealing with high blood pressure, heart failure, diabetes, epilepsy, or gallbladder disease
  • Prempak-C shouldn't be used during pregnancy or whilst breastfeeding

What dosages are available for Prempak-C?

Prempak-C is available in one dose of 1.25 mg.This contains a pack of 28 yellow tablets with a 1.25mg dose of conjugated oestrogens (equine) and a 150mcg dose of the progestogen norgestrel.

What are the side effects of Prempak-C?

Just like any medication, HRT products can cause side effects. However, if you are using a supplement, then you are most likely visiting your doctor routinely to ensure that your side effects aren't a need for concern. Common side effects of Prempak-C may include:

  • Changes in your sex drive
  • Feeling bloated
  • Fluid retention
  • Headaches
  • Indigestion or nausea

These are likely to be experienced because of the oestrogen in this medication. As the body becomes accustomed to the treatment the side effects should lessen, if any do get progressively worse

Side effects of the progestogen in this treatment tend to be similar, with the additional risk of backache and acne.
