What is Premarin?
Premarin is one of the most commonly prescribed estrogens for hormone replacement therapy, particularly in postmenopausal women who have had a hysterectomy. During menopause, levels of natural hormones such as estrogen drop. This causes numerous menopausal symptoms like hot flashes and vaginal dryness. Premarin replenishes hormone levels and alleviates menopausal symptoms. Premarin may also be used for other conditions including palliative treatment of some cancers, hypogonadism, or osteoporosis related to menopause.

The dosage of Premarin varies depending on the condition being treated and other factors like how the patient responds to treatment and medical history. For treating symptoms of menopause, most patients start taking Premarin in dosages of 0.3 mg and then have their dosage gradually increased as necessary.

It is important that only the lowest necessary dosage of Premarin is taken and for the shortest period of treatment time needed. In some cases, Premarin may be taken regularly whereas other patients may be required to take Premarin in cycles. Patients taking Premarin must have their progress frequently reevaluated and be checked for side effects like uterine cancer.
