Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

PREMARIN is indicated in the treatment of moderate to severe vasomotor symptoms due to menopause, treatment of moderate to severe symptoms of vulvar and vaginal atrophy due to menopause, and the prevention of postmenopausal osteoporosis.1
When prescribing solely for the symptoms of vulvar and vaginal atrophy, topical vaginal products should be considered.1
When prescribing solely for the prevention of postmenopausal osteoporosis, therapy should only be considered for women at significant risk of osteoporosis and non-estrogen medications should be carefully considered.1
PREMARIN contains a mixture of conjugated estrogens, which are a mixture of sodium estrone sulfate and sodium equilin sulfate and other components, including sodium sulfate conjugates, 17α-dihydroequilin, 17α-estradiol, and 17ß-dihydroequilin.1
This is not a comprehensive list of ingredients.
PREMARIN is available in 5 dosage strengths (range spans from 0.3 mg to 1.25 mg).1
Estrogens, with or without progestins, should be prescribed at the lowest effective dose and for the shortest duration consistent with treatment goals and risks for the individual woman. In some cases, hysterectomized women with a history of endometriosis may need a progestin.
PREMARIN should not be used in women with any of the following conditions: undiagnosed abnormal genital bleeding; known, suspected, or a history of breast cancer; known or suspected estrogen-dependent neoplasia; active deep vein thrombosis, pulmonary embolism, or a history of these conditions; active arterial thromboembolic disease (eg, stroke, myocardial infarction), or a history of these conditions; anaphylactic reaction or angioedema with PREMARIN; liver impairment or disease; thrombophilic disorders; known or suspected pregnancy.1
Estrogens increase the risk of gallbladder disease. Discontinue estrogen if loss of vision, severe hypercalcemia, severe hypertriglyceridemia or cholestatic jaundice occurs. Monitor thyroid function in women on thyroid replacement therapy, because estrogens may be associated with increased thyroid binding globulin (TBG) levels.1
Most common adverse reactions (≥5%) are abdominal pain, asthenia, pain, back pain, headache, flatulence, nausea, depression, insomnia, breast pain, endometrial hyperplasia, leucorrhea, vaginal hemorrhage, and vaginitis.1
