Combinations of estrogen and progestin are utilized to alleviate specific symptoms associated with menopause. Estrogen, and progestin, are integral to the female reproductive system. Hormone replacement therapy functions by supplementing the estrogen hormone that the body no longer produces naturally. Estrogen is effective in diminishing sensations of warmth in the upper body, episodes of sweating and heat (hot flashes), as well as addressing vaginal symptoms such as itching, burning, and dryness. In hormone replacement therapy, progestin is combined with estrogen to mitigate the risk of uterine cancer in women who retain their uterus.

For optimal benefits, take this medication consistently and at the same time each day.

Adhere to your dosing schedule diligently, avoiding any increase in dosage or taking the medication more frequently or for a longer duration than directed.

  • Before initiating this medication, inform your doctor or pharmacist about any existing allergies you may have, as this product could contain inactive ingredients that might trigger allergic reactions or other complications.
  • Discuss your medical history with your doctor or pharmacist before using this medication, especially if you have experienced vaginal bleeding of unknown origin, certain cancers (such as breast cancer, uterine/ovarian cancer), blood clots, stroke, heart disease, liver disease, kidney disease, a family history of medical conditions (particularly breast lumps, cancer, blood clots), a family or personal history of a specific swelling disorder (angioedema), blood clotting disorders, high blood pressure, diabetes, high blood cholesterol/triglyceride levels, obesity, lupus, underactive thyroid (hypothyroidism), mineral imbalances, a particular hormone problem (hypoparathyroidism), uterus issues, gallbladder disease, asthma, seizures, migraine headaches, a certain blood disorder (porphyria), or mental/mood disorders.
  • Avoid smoking or using tobacco while using this medication, as the combination of estrogens and smoking heightens the risk of stroke, blood clots, high blood pressure, and heart attack, especially in women over the age of 35.
  • Notify your doctor if you have recently undergone or are planning to undergo surgery or if you will be immobile for an extended period (e.g., a long plane flight).

How long should you take Prempro?

Prempro, like all estrogen replacement medications, raises your risk of some serious medical problems (such as breast cancer and blood clots) when used for long periods of time. The longer you are using this medication, the higher your risk is, so it’s recommended to only use this medication for the shortest amount of time necessary.
