Product information

Premarin is a type of HRT made by Pfizer. It is a single-hormone pill, containing oestrogen, provided in three different doses. The dose you use will be decided on by your doctor, but you will normally start on the lowest, and have your dose increased as required. Premarin is only available to buy online or in person with a prescription from a doctor.

The menopause is a natural change a woman’s body goes through, as its reproductive span comes to an end. In the majority of cases, it will occur between a woman’s mid-forties and mid-fifties, with the average age of onset in the UK being 51. Less commonly, it can occur much earlier, during a woman’s twenties or thirties; this is known as premature menopause.

During the menopause, the levels of certain hormones in the body change. Oestrogen tends to drop, and this can cause several symptoms, such as vaginal dryness, hot flushes, sweating during the night, headaches and mood swings. This drop in oestrogen can also lead to a loss of bone density, called osteoporosis. People with osteoporosis have weaker, more fragile bones, and are more at risk of sustaining a break or a fracture if they fall or become injured.

HRT, or hormone replacement therapy, is a way of supplementing this drop in hormones, and helps to counter these symptoms. Not every woman uses HRT, as some may find that symptoms are not severe enough to warrant treatment. But if a woman feels that symptoms are obstructing everyday life, they may find treatment with HRT beneficial.

The mixture of artificial oestrogens in Premarin work in the body to raise levels of oestrogen, thereby alleviating symptoms such as hot flushes and vaginal dryness, and decreasing the risk of osteoporosis. In some women with osteoporosis, Premarin can also be used as a treatment for the condition if other medicines have not been successful.

Oestrogen-only HRT is normally given to women who have had an operation to remove the uterus, called a hysterectomy. It can also be given to women who have not had this procedure, but in such cases a progesterone only form of HRT will also need to be taken. This is because women who still have a uterus and take oestrogen on its own have an increased risk of endometrial cancer. Progesterone helps to balance out oestrogen levels in the body, and lowers this risk.

With our secure and confidential service, it’s simple to renew your prescription online and buy Premarin from our trusted UK pharmacy. When you order your treatment, you’ll be asked to complete our doctor-reviewed questionnaire. Following authorisation by our clinician, a prescription will be generated and sent to our dispensing pharmacy, where your treatment will be prepared and shipped to you by next-day courier.

Directions

Read the patient information leaflet fully before using this medication. If you are not sure of anything to do with this treatment, ask your doctor or pharmacist for help.

  1. Take as prescribed by your doctor.
  2. This will in most cases be one pill daily, taken at the same time each day, swallowed whole with water.
  3. If you have had surgery to remove your womb (hysterectomy) you may be prescribed this pill to take on its own.
  4. If you have not had surgery and have an intact uterus, you may be issued a progesterone pill (or patch) in addition to Premarin, to either be taken alongside it every day, or on certain days towards the end of a monthly cycle.
  5. You will normally start on the lowest possible dose. Depending on how you react to the pill and whether it effectively reduces symptoms, your doctor may increase the dose.
  6. If you miss a pill, take it when you remember and carry on the course as normal. Do not take double the amount next time to make up for it.
  7. In women who have not had a hysterectomy, missing a pill may cause some breakthrough bleeding.
  8. If you are also taking a progestogen, you may experience some bleeding on the days you take this. For the first few months of sequential treatment this is normal, and you should notice a gradual reduction in bleeding until it stops. However, if you continue to bleed after three months of commencing treatment or have any heavy bleeding which concerns you, speak to your doctor for advice.

More detailed instructions are provided in the leaflet that comes with the pill.
