HoneyBee Pharmacy understands the importance of Premarin and how millions of American women use this medication. Premarin comes in various forms. Premarin tablets contain conjugated estrogens, a mixture of estrogen hormones. Estrogen is a female sex hormone produced by the ovaries. Estrogen is necessary for many processes in the body. It is used to treat menopause symptoms such as hot flashes and vaginal changes, and to prevent osteoporosis (bone loss) in menopausal women.
Premarin is also used to replace estrogen in women with ovarian failure or other conditions that cause a lack of natural estrogen in the body. Do not use if you are pregnant. This may increase your risk of developing a condition that may lead to uterine cancer. Report any unusual vaginal bleeding right away.
Using this medicine can increase your risk of blood clots, stroke, or heart attack, or cancer of the breast, uterus, or ovaries. Estrogen should not be used to prevent heart disease, stroke, or dementia. Have regular physical exams and self-examine your breasts for lumps on a monthly basis while using Premarin.
