In a clinical trial, the lowest dose (0.3 mg) of PREMARIN reduced the number of hot flashes from 13 to less than 3 per day at 12 weeks of therapy. Hot flashes and night sweats are likely to become less frequent and intense. You may begin to feel relief from hot flashes in as little as 3 weeks.
PREMARIN has been shown to significantly improve vaginal symptoms due to menopause at every dose.
PREMARIN has been proven to increase bone density of the hip and the spine and can help prevent osteoporosis.
PREMARIN is effective even at low doses.
Since no two women are the same, PREMARIN offers a range of doses to meet the needs of different women. With five dosage strengths, including two low-dose options, PREMARIN 0.3 mg and PREMARIN 0.45 mg, your healthcare professional can choose the one that is right for you. The lowest dose of PREMARIN that is effective for you should be used.
Is PREMARIN right for me?
If your menopausal symptoms are moderate to severe, PREMARIN may be the right treatment option for you. Together, you and your doctor should review all of your treatment options.
It is also important to review your family history with your healthcare professional prior to beginning therapy with PREMARIN. If there is a family history of heart disease, breast cancer, stroke, blood clots, or osteoporosis, be sure to tell your healthcare professional.
If your only symptoms are vaginal, such as dryness, burning and itching, which can make intercourse uncomfortable or painful, your healthcare professional may recommend a topical therapy.
If you are using or are considering using PREMARIN only to prevent osteoporosis due to menopause, talk with your healthcare provider about whether a different treatment or medicine without estrogens might be better for you.
